Genuine Organically Grown Produce Offerings for

Weekend of August 2nd

The tomatoes are really coming in here at Arugula's Star Farm, all colors shapes and sizes.  The cherry and small slicers are the ones that are ripening up first.  The larger varieties of Mexico,Big White, Spear's TN Green, and Red Parragon are taking longer to really start ripening up.  I have 54 tomato plants and this was the largest crop of any vegetable that I will have to offer this year, other than potatoes, and there are plenty to go around so please try some if you are out in the Leipers Creek Road area over the weekend. I harvested the last of the Cabbages yesterday, before cultirotating the Garden Field strip areas, for either cover cropping or fall planting of vegetable crops that will overwinter and offer an early spring harvest offering in 2014.  I will be talking more of this in the future as this is a small hint of the growings for next year!  Here are some tomato photos we have taken over this past week to stimulate your taste buds for some of our delicious, bright, joyful, and genuine tomatoes. The corn sure got to soak up the wonderful rain we have been having today and yesterday evening that has totaled 1.75 inches...a couple week countdown till harvest.

Here below is what I have to offer. Produce items are very limited and will be filled on a first order first serve basis. Pick-ups will be here on farm at The Rocket, which is at the gate down by the creek, after turning into the driveway.  If you will place your order, by either calling or e-mailing, by 7 am this Friday August the 2nd, I will have your bulk order with your name on it in a cooler at the rocket starting at 5pm on Friday evening the 2nd all through the rest of the weekend for you to be able to pick-up at your convenience. Please bring your own bag, sack, or basket to put your items in, unless you have been a regular in the past and I will continue to rotate your baskets that have your name on it. There is a cash tin in the rocket for you to either leave a check or cash.  Thanks.

Genuine Organically Grown Produce Offerings for

Weekend of July 26th

Good evening to all on this Wednesday. Just like predicted the tomatoes have started ripening, so we are harvesting and enjoying them greatly.  There are three varieties right now that are ripening first and they are the Jaune Flamee, Manyel Yellow Golds, and Spear's TN Green.  We have six more varieties that should start turning any day now, maybe even by Friday.  If and when you order tomato poundage you will receive a mixture of all the different varieties.  The onions have finally started dropping their green drying top leaves, so they are ready to start pulling out of the ground.  The Windy Wood Okra has started producing and we enjoyed our first Okra with some Cabbage the other night. We were thankful for the good rains we finally got on Sunday and Monday here, as we had not had any rain for over two weeks and yes I know this might sound suprising to all around whom have been getting lots of rain showers.  It seemed like the storm clouds would always either be to our North or South, so again I was thrilled to have the 1.5" of rain finally.   

I have also done an Arugula's Star Farm Kitchen Writing attributed to the wonderful Berries of the season, so to read this recipe just click here.

Genuine Organically Grown Produce Offerings

For the July 19th Weekend from Arugula's Star Farm

Allison in the Texas Honey June Corn

We have about the same offerings as we did last week.  By next week though, I think we will start having some of our first tomatoes to offer.  I picked the first Jaune Flamee cherry tomato last night and it looks like there will start being a good amount of ripe tomatoes on the up and coming.  Our Texas Honey June corn variety is really performing and looking stellar thus far and I am really excited about this old type of open pollinated sweet corn.  Corn was a priority this year and this is the best corn plot we have grown at Arugula's Star Farm up to date, so I am encouraged about some good Genuine Organic corn crops in the future.  It started tasseling just a few days ago, which was after the pictures we took in the corn patch this past weekend.  Harvest date should be around August 19th so mark your calendars. The cucumbers are still the stars of our table, but  I will say the Spring/Summer French Cabbages have really headed up well this season and have been most adored. As the cabbages store well in cool refrigerators for a while, I would order a couple up to have on hand to use in slaws, salads, and cooked fixings, as I will not be able to keep them out in the field for much longer as the area needs to be turned in and planted with a fall cover crop. 

 

Here below is what I have to offer. Produce items are very limited and will be filled on a first order first serve basis. Pick-ups will be here on farm at The Rocket, which is at the gate down by the creek, after turning into the driveway.  If you will place your order, by either calling or e-mailing, by 7 am this Friday July the 19th, I will have your bulk order with your name on it in a cooler at the rocket starting at 5pm on Friday evening the 19th all through the rest of the weekend for you to be able to pick-up at your convenience.

Genuine Organically Grown Produce Offerings

For July 12th Weekend from Arugula's Star Farm

 

 

Here below is what I have to offer. Produce items are very limited and will be filled on a first order first serve basis.

The Poona Kheera Cucumbers are really in their prime right now and are so refreshing and crunchy for these warm days of summer, so I would highly recommend getting some pounds of this great variety of cucumbers.  I dug the Satina Potatoes this morning and out of a 100 foot row I got 147 pounds, so I am sure pleased with this great yield!  The potatoes really do have an excellent flavor and texture.  I always plant Flax in between the potato rows as a beneficial that is suppose to create a better tasting potato and the flax helps keep the unwanted potato bugs at bay. Research says that The Purple Suns are suppose to have higher levels of Vitamin C and Carotenoid antioxidant than other potatoes.   The Genovese Basil and Summer Savory are a must for any dish I make right now, as they are both so fragrant and good for you.
