News from the field
You may have noticed it’s been raining. We’ve considered a shift to aquaculture and rice production. Seriously though, the rain has been a real hindrance. We’ve had to work between cloudbursts, but we were able to plant about 500 onions. We also moved a lot of mulch, spreading it between our garden rows. Thanks to Ruth Stout’s advice, we hope to stay ahead of the weeds. Of course, we don’t use chemicals, like pesticides and herbicides, so we rely on organic methods to grow healthy, delicious vegetables.
Many people stopped by our Selinsgrove Farmer’s Market booth last Saturday, and got our Serious Seasonal Cookbook along with their purchase. It came with the first weekly recipe- Spinach Mushroom Pasta. This week, our recipe is Potato Kale Soup. You can get your copy by purchasing something on Saturday. If you’ve not yet started our cookbook, it’s not too late. We focused on kale this week, because many people say they don’t know how to cook with it. Nutritionally, kale takes the cake. It is very high in Vitamins A, B and C. Kale is also high in calcium and protein. It grows well in cool weather, so we’ll offer it in the spring and fall.
We look forward to seeing you at the Selinsgrove Farmer’s Market on Saturday from 9-1. We encourage you to invite your friends.
