Shares Start This Thursday! April 7th

Here we are about to start the 2022 CSA year! This Thursday! Don’t forget to bring a basket to put you produce in. Pick up is after 2 pm.

We will have kale, lettuce, asparagus and other great spring crops. As much as I know you would love to know what we will have in advance, we don’t always know. It will depend on each week, the weather and the plants/vegetables decide in the end!

We will see you soon for the beginning of a great season!

2022 Shares

2022 spring shares are fulfilled, but we still have summer and fall shares open. Just go take a look at the shares tab. This year is going to be great! We have been revamping the beds with lots of love and care. Kira has a new garden area after not having much space the last few years. She is increasing the growing area by 200 percent from years past. I will say she is very ambitious! I really appreciate the growing help I get from my daughters (Chelsea and Kira) and I’m sure you do as well. They both grow with the same organic practices I do, which is no chemicals, amending the soil with rich compost, minerals and organic food for the plants, along with companion planting and creating a healthy environment for beneficial insects. What does that mean? healthier food for you to consume with more vitamins and minerals!

Thank you for your support!

October!

Today I am perplexed! The forecast shows a pretty good temperature drop… more than likely it will not freeze, but do I risk it??? Plus the wind that is supposed to come In. It says the low with chill will be 36 degrees. My little farm seems to freeze when that is forecasted. I have three peach tree still full of ripe, almost ripe and green peaches. Cantaloupe that is almost ready, peppers by the bushel, eggplant galore, tomatillos, sweet potatoes to be dug, the last of the kaboocha squash to harvest and so on. The last of the pears were harvested this morning. Oh my, they are so good right now! looks like a good share week to me! I don’t think I will gamble! Looks like a crazy busy day here!

While we say goodbye to the summer bounty, we welcome the crops that only get better with a frost. Broccoli is on this week, carrots and parsnips sweeten with colder temperatures. Lettuce, spinach, cilantro, kale and chard will become a winter staple. And all the winter squash will keep for months. Persimmons and quince are just around the corner. I love fall! So be sure to visit us after shares end.

This week have welcomed 7 new Chocolate Runner ducklings to the farm. Mamma duck, keep those little ones warm!

This week is the last of our fall shares. We want to thank all of you for your love and support this season. You may never know all the help you have given us through your support. Thank you all!

Garlic Scapes in White Wine

Garlic scapes season is an abundant one. But there is only so much scape pesto, steamed scapes, roasted scapes, grilled scapes, sautéed scapes, scape salad dressing…You get the idea…A person can eat! I love the curly wonders of these delicious plant creatures, and ponder what else…. what else can I create.

Turban Garlic Scape

For those who don’t struggle with the issue of scape mania, consider growing your own garlic to join the fun. You can also often find scapes for sell at your local farmers markets or CSA shares.

Here is another great way to salivate over garlic scapes.

2 tablespoons olive oil

1/2 pound garlic scapes, copped into 3-5 inch pieces

Salt and freshly ground black pepper

1/2 cup dry white wine

1. Heat the oil in a large skillet over medium heat. When the oil is hot, add the scapes and sauté, stirring often, until the scapes are bright green, 3 to 5 minutes. Season generously with salt and pepper, then add half the wine and immediately cover. Let the scapes cook, stirring occasionally, until tender, 5 to 8 minutes.

2. Once the scapes are tender, remove the lid and turn up the heat. Cook, stirring Constantly, until the scapes brown slightly and add the remaining wine till it is evaporated. The sugars in the scapes may caramelize a little this is a good thing, so keep stirring. Serve hot.
