New Field Farm's Online Market:  Fresh Baby Ginger!


I decided it was time to check on the ginger and it’s far enough along to begin harvesting.

If you already ordered and would like some you can order it and the site will add it to your current order.

Here’s the info that accompanies the ginger in the market section:

This BABY GINGER is grown in our hoophouse. It has a lovely aroma, excellent flavor, and is beautiful to look at (click on the photo for a close-up. The piece in the photo, minus the tops, is a 1/4 lb.). It’s great for cooking, tea, smoothies, pickling, and anything else where you want the flavor of fresh ginger.

IT FREEZES REALLY WELL, retaining it’s flavor almost indefinitely. It peels or grates easily and then the unused portion (still frozen – don’t let it thaw out!) is returned to the freezer.

It keeps fresh in a bag in the fridge for about two weeks. It’s helpful to rinse it once in a while and then return it to the fridge. This ginger is a nice addition to the diet during our long winters.

The ginger is propagated vegetatively, like potatoes. The seed ginger arrived from the Big Island of Hawaii in late March and was germinated in the house until late May when it was planted out in the hoop house. Many months of watering and weeding followed. We should be harvesting it until the end of October or so. The variety is called Bubba Blue.

New Field Farm's Online Market:  Weblog Entry


We’re adding baby bok choy, some cabbage and the first few cauliflower heads that have sized up.

I thought summer was on the way out, but not yet. More temps in the 80s are on the way. This warmth and humidity does give a late season boost, but it cuts both ways, good and bad. We have more cukes and squash which is unusual for us this time of the year, and the cauliflower that seemed to be coming slowly took a jump this past week. The bad edge of the sword is that the heat and humidity brought on a rapid, late season flush of basil downy mildew that I thought we had dodged this year. So no more basil. But we had a good three month run of it. The first planting of spinach, which likes life to be cooler and less humid, hasn’t fared well, either. Hopefully, the second planting will do better.

On we go. Enjoy the last week of summer.

Market News

The everyone else here, our growers really took a beating when Irma blew through. Some were out of power for most of the week, but I think everyone has been restored by now. Plants were blown over and broken, fruit were knocked off the branches, and everything just generally took a beating.

The availability list does perhaps look just a bit light for this time of year, but they’ve really hustled to get what they can harvest onto the website for you. We’ve all really pulled together as a community this week, and there are some folks that had it much rougher than others. I hope that sense of camaraderie can stick with us for a good long time.

Thank you so much for your support of Athens Locally Grown, all of our growers, local food, and our rights to eat it. You all are part of what makes Athens such a great area in which to live. We’ll see you on Thursday at Ben’s Bikes at the corner of Pope and Broad Streets from 4:30 to 8pm!
