My friend Mary recently shared with me what she did with the ginger she received in her CSA share. She made Ginger, Turmeric & Lemon Honey Bombs! With the arrival of the hustle and bustle of the holidays, I found this to be a timely treat. Add a teaspoon or two to hot water, add it to tea or juice, or slather it on bread. This supercharged mix will nourish your body, mind and spirit.
•Webb City Farmers Market will be open this Wednesday 11-1 so come and pick up fresh fixings for your Thanksgiving holiday meal. We will be there with fresh herbs and a new item this year. Ginger Habanero Jelly. It’s a delicious glaze for roasted meats, especially pork. Or mix with cream cheese for a sweet and spicy spread. Continue reading
It’s the end of our third CSA season. Thank you again for participating and supporting our farm! Doug and I appreciate the investment you make into our farm every year and the trust you have placed with us as a supplier of your fresh produce. Continue reading
The Ginger and Turmeric are absolutely thriving under Doug’s gentle attention. Although we have grown Ginger before, Turmeric is a new crop for us. It’s beautiful… We are excited about the harvest! Both are tropical plants with tremendous health benefits. And, we treat them with special care. Organic, disease free rhizomes from Hawaii are sprouted indoors on heat mats in our chilly weather in March and April! This year, they are planted out in High Tunnel 2 in June when the soil is nice and warm. By planting in a high tunnel, we expect to extend the harvest season of fresh, local Baby Ginger and Turmeric for you well into November and December. I’ll be sure to let you know when we expect to start the harvest.
And… there are always the goats! The lady cows are also starting to calve so we expect a full farm!
Currently, there are also late season Tomatoes, Peppers and Eggplant growing in our fall high tunnel. I know that it seems crazy to be thinking about fall but farmers are always planing for the next harvest season. In addition to our current summer season produce, we expect to add lots of fresh, local produce to kickoff of the Winter Market at Webb City Farmers Market this fall!
