Farm Tour

What: Seminole Springs Antique Rose and Herb Farm

When: Sunday, November 11, 2012 @ 10 a.m. until 12 noon

Where: Eustis, FL

(an hour’s drive from downtown Orlando)

We will meet once again in Eustis, FL to visit with a third grower, Seminole Springs Antique Rose and Herb Farm, who partners with Homegrown. While we are there, Farmer Traci Anderson will take us on a tour of this family run nursery, and provide us with a mini workshop on growing and using herbs.

Handouts will be included, so, be certain to make a reservation <eeant@mac.com> since space is limited. For those that like active participation mixed with comedy, Traci will give us an opportunity to keep up with the potting machine conveyor belt.

After the tour, participants are invited to picnic on the grounds, visit the gift shed, and share a glass of herb tea. As this is Veteran’s Day, please, feel free to invite a Veteran in your life to attend this farm tour as your guest.

To make a reservation for you and/or any accompanying guests, please contact: Jackie McFadden, eeant@mac.com, 404-571-9602, or sign-up at the Homegrown Store.

Shop at the On-line Farmer’s Market.

New Field Farm's Online Market:  last order


Greetings,

PICK-UP for the last order will be NEXT WEDNESDAY 11/14 at the same time and places as usual – both the farm and Union Mill. ORDERS CAN BE PLACED anytime between now and Tuesday 11/13 at 8:00.

I’ll send out a reminder email this Sunday. Let me know if you have any questions.

There’s not too much to order, but I thought we would have one last go-round.

I can’t do an order this week because the water line to the wash shed is frozen. Next week is supposed to be milder.

We’ve harvested the last of the cabbage, gathered up the remaining onions from their curing racks, and put several layers of row cover over the carrots. Leeks and kale are still out in the field. The deer are starting to nibble on the kale which seems to be one sign that they know what’s coming. They always leave it alone until there’s not much else to choose from on the farm. Or maybe they just prefer it after it’s been through some hard frosts.

Also, the garlic has been planted, cover crops sown, irrigation lines put away, and soon the greenhouse and hoop house will be cleaned out and closed up for the winter. We have a wonderfully large pile of wood chips from the people clearing limbs for PSNH which will get spread as mulch on the blueberries this fall or in the spring.

After everything has been cleaned up and put away – let it snow.

Enjoy,
Tim

RECIPES

Potato Kale Hash
by: Christine Macauley of Flying Dog Farm

Potatoes, grated
Coconut oil
onion, grated
salt and pepper
kale, stems removed
Worcestershire sauce
1 egg

Saute grated potatoes in your oil of choice (I like coconut) together with some grated onion, salt and pepper. When potatoes are soft, add lots of chopped fresh kale. Pile it high and cover the potatoes, it will shrink a LOT. Stir and cook on medium heat until potatoes start to brown. Sprinkle with Worcestershire sauce and quickly reduce and incorporate the Worcestershire before serving.
Optional: Pile them up in the middle of the pan. Break an egg on top and mix it in, forming a sort of hash brown patty held together by the egg as it cooks. Now you have a complete meal in one pan! Yum.
