Howdy Folks! Hope everyone is staying warm on this cold afternoon! I’m pretty excited about this week’s box, and the new additions. Sweet peppers, dill, kabocha winter squash, and drum roll.. cauliflower! I love our cauliflower, along with everything else of course ;).
We are ready to see some sunshine, y’all! For the vegetables and herbs, but also for myself. I do however feel like eating seasonal vegetables does help with SAD or the winter blues. Not sure if it is something that is talked about much, but I do think it is a real disorder. Make sure to get lots of vitamin D in good sources of nuts, fatty foods and fish, and milk or yogurt. Also, a great way to stay healthy during flu season is to get a big dose of vitamin C with some seasonal and local greens. Some greens like collards and kale have more vitamin C than orange juice!
The farm is sloppy and muddy. We have never seen it so muddy before! With the lack of sunshine to help dry up the fields and we have received 4 inches of rain! Yes, 4 inches! Van and I dream of one day having an enclosed packing facility! Concrete floors with drains, and walk in coolers that we can easily roll our products in and out of.. one day soon!
**** Next week we will only have ONE PICK UP DAY at our farm location on Tuesday 11/20/18 from 4-6pm AND at M7 coffee house from 4-6pm. This of course is due to Thanksgiving. Our Delta delivery will remain the same for Wednesday 11/21/18 **** Please let us know if this does not work for you and we will try to figure out other arrangements. My phone number is 601-624-4914 or email firstname.lastname@example.org. We will be emailing everyone to make arrangements.
We hope everyone has a great week and stays well. Take care of yourselves and enjoy your time with friends and family. Here are the contents of this week’s box:
Hakurei Turnips- A Japanese specialty salad turnip. Delicious stir fried, roasted, and grilled. Make sure to eat the greens with the turnips or set aside for another meal!
Dill- Dill is also amazing chopped up finely and added to salads!
Kabocha Squash- Pumpkin like squash. Great roasted and eaten alone, made into soup, or even made into a Kabocha “pumpkin” pie!! Excellent for Thanksgiving!
