Take a look here at the up and coming summer vine crops we have started in trays...winter & summer squash, watermelon, sweet melon, and cucumbers.  Then in the next frame you can see the flax and potatoes planted hand in hand coming along nicely in the garden.

 

I am sure you have been enjoying the Kohlrabi as much as we have this spring.  The Lanro Kohlrabi really has been one of my favorite spring vegetables that we have grown.  The crisp juiciness of the large green ball is just hard to pass up.  I know I have talked about it already but I wanted to say that over a weekend trip to visit my sister and brother-n-law in Memphis I was able to enjoy even another great way to prepare Kohlrabi.  Zach enjoys grilling so he grilled for me the Kohlrabi that I packed along.  We just rubbed with olive oil, salt and pepper and it was really tasty.  I need to set up a fire pit somewhere down in the valley so I can do this often, as we do not make it up to the top ridge bald to make use of our campfire area enough for dinner time.  So if you are a griller I would most highly recommend the Kohlrabi grilled.  Then last night, I just peeled and sliced Kohlrabi pieces raw and dipped them in a cilantro, dill, almond paste/pesto.  The night before I made a shredded slaw with the Kohlrabi.  We have about been having it every night.

 

The Beet Greens are very sweet and tender right now, with just a quick blanch and then either a toss with an oil, vinegar, and seasonings or then sauteed with oil, vinegar and seasonings they are ready for good tastings.  All of the greens we have right now have really good properties for your health  so pile them up and eat lots of them as they are so tasty and good for you!

The Lanro  Kohlrabi is this years grown variety for spring Kohlrabi.       

It is light green with a tender white flesh.  Sweet and delicious.  They are great chopped and eaten raw with cheese, dips, herb pestos.  They can be sauteed and added into salads or used as a side dish.  They can be grated and made into slaws.  Their green tops can be used as well like one would use Collards or Kale.  They have a sharper and tangier flavor then spinach.  Also, Kohlrabi  is in the Cabbage family as it is a Brassica oleracea, so it has all the great healthy benefits like one associates with Kale . The Heirloom Green Deer Tongue Lettuce Heads are really neat and unusual heads of lettuce.  Their origin  dates back to the 1740's.  This is one of my favorite types of lettuce heads.    

 Please, take a look below and see what other nutritious vegetables Arugula's Star Farm has to offer.  The Cilantro is very good and it is in its prime here for the next couple of weeks.  We even have two Allium offerings this week...scallions and garlic scapes.

The new Spring planted vegetables are finally ready to start harvesting, so hopefully you will find something that looks exciting and that will taste delicious.  Remember spring vegetables can come and go quicker than fall/winter vegetables because of the the transition of the weather going from warm to HOT instead of warm to cooler.  Nonetheless, they are here and healthy now so get them while you can.

The new green for this week is the Batavian Escarole Endive.  When there are the many greens all in season together right now I love making fine chopped salads that include all of them.  For example, last night I fine chopped Spinach, Green Deer Tongue Lettuce, Beet Greens and Dainty Roots, and Batavian Escarole Endive and this was the base of our large green salad.  The combination of flavers of the medley is really nice.  I just added some put up scallopini squash vinegar pickles, olives, olive oil, pickle vinegar juice, cheese, and almond.  We had toast on the side with poached eggs and there it was our dinner in a nutshell, delicious and no cooking involved except for the bread I had made days ago and for the simmering water for the poached eggs.

Good day to all.  We have been gone on a trip to visit my paretns in East TN.  We had a good visit, but it was filled with some work as well.  My Dad raises cattle still on the old family land and we helped herd up and take about 26 bulls and heifers to the market.  We took our chickens on their third road trip to East TN.  Matthew built a portable perching system that we keep there for them and they have the nice green cow pastures and hay fields to range.  We wonder how many chickens get to take fun roadtrips like this??   

Well I thought I would send out a random offering just in case any one wanted to get anything, before the normal offering coming up for the weekend of May 11th.  Also, from now on when you order if you could let us know to the best of your knowledge what day you plan on swinging by the rocket that would be helpful in my routine of placing the produce at the rocket.

Hello from Arugula's Star Farm,

It seems as though the overwintered vegetables are coming near their end as the lush cover crops around them slowly start to overgrow and they soon start wanting to bolt and produce seed.  Nonetheless, they are not finished quite yet and should be hanging around for at least a few more weeks, so order them while you can.  Here in the early spring of 2012 we will be sending out e-mails so you can see what is available for order on a weekly to every other week basis.  Also, now you can start sending in your order by e-mail allie@ArugulasStarFarm.com, fax, or phone.

Well the real spring has arrived and the potatoes are in the ground.  Just got in from planting potatoes this evening.  This year we are trying the two varieties of Sangre and Kennebec.  We are trying to study what different varieties of potatoes grow well here.  Last year we concluded that the Purple Viking, Desiree, and All Blues perform excellently.  They were planted on March 22nd of 2011. The potatoes this year went in a day earlier on March 21st.  For the week leading up to the first day of spring we decided to consume good amounts of Indian spiced vegetables.  I have a great book written by Madhur Jaffrey...recipes from the Indian Spice Trail.  All the vegetables that we have now work well for the vegetables dishes.  The cabbage, kale, collards, rutabaga roots and leeks really make for sensational bases for the Indian type spices. Speaking of Indian food, Garlic will be the next great addition to our farm offerings for 2012.  This year is the first for us to try planting garlic.  We went with Persian Star hardneck and Chet's Italian Red softneck.  I was out doing the first cultivation around the garlic row, on the day before spring, that had been planted in October of 2011 and mulched with aged leaf mulch.  We have eaten our first asparagus of the year and soon you will be able to too.  I think it will be a good week before it really starts coming on heavy, but there might be enough for a few orders this week but it could be iffy, so keep that in mind when you order.

The week is warming up around here.  Looks like 80 degree weather for a good 5 days forward.  The young seedlings of cabbage, spinach, onions, lettuce, endive, and kohlrabi are coming along very well. 

Here is a quick recipe for combining our available vegetables of the week.

All Organic Late Winter Vegetable Asian Medley

I coarse chopped carrots, rutabaga, leeks, and cabbage.  I heated sunflower and sesame oil in a pot then added the carrots, rutabagas, leeks, and sauteed (all on a little over medium heat).  Then I added dried/tea form ginger and crushed dried basil leaves.  After the harder vegetables were in the pot for a little while I added in the cabbage.  I also added salt and cracked white pepper.   Stir around quite a bit to make sure nothing sticks.  When all seems to be getting like it needs some liquid I then added in some leftover homemade pickle juice.  When I plated it up I added a few splashes of Shoyu sauce.  Served with homemade crackers and cheese.

There will now be available dozens of our chickens eggs placed in the rocket for anyone to purchase on a first come first serve basis when you are picking up your produce order. There is no limit on the eggs. They are $5.00/dozen.

Hello from Arugula's Star Farm,

As there are still fresh and hardy organic vegetables out in the garden field we will be sending weekly e-mails out on a weekly to every other week basis through these up and coming winter months. Also, now you can start sending in your order by e-mail allie@ArugulasStarFarm.com, fax, or phone.

If you need a reminder of how the On-Farm pick-ups work or if you need to remember how to order please click here to read about On-Farm pick-ups.  

**Remember... you can order by phone 931-682-3314,  fax 931-682-9175, or e-mail **

**Picking day, most normally, for the rest of the winter months will occur on Friday mornings.  Therefore, produce will be ready and placed at or in the ROCKET from 2:00pm on Fridays and will be available there all weekend, through Sunday.  

**Please place orders by Late Thursday evening, as harvesting starts early on Friday**
  
Available Organic Items for
Friday March 9th through Sunday March 11th On-Farm Rocket pick-ups:

All items are always on a first order first serve basis.

On Tuesday we were able to make a bulk sell to Fresh Harvest LLC in order to lower our numbers of Joan Rutabagas, and Dottenfelder Cabbages in the garden field, which was great as I did not want them to go to waste.  These overwintered vegetables will continue to hold on in the field and grow for the next month or so, but eventually they would go to seed and we would turn them in to be able to cover crop. We also sold them 24 lbs of Bulk White Russian kale.  They sell their farm items at a drop off in Nashville, close to Linden Corner School, off of Sharondale Road on Wednesdays.  We have known Tallahassee May and John Drury for many years now, and off and on have sold them items when they were in the need and we had plenty of extras. If you are a Nashville town person and would enjoy having the selection of organic produce until we are back in the full swing of things out here on the farm... a couple years from now, then we would recommend you look into signing up to be apart of Fresh Harvest, or at least reading about them.

Nonetheless, if you are a local, meaning close in proximity to Arugula's Star Farm in the Bethel Community then we will continue to have very small amounts of  limited, varying, and seasonal organic produce throughout the 2012 year. When we have items available the weekly e-mail will be sent out and when we do not have items available then the weekly e-mail will not be sent out.  Very simple. 

Be sure and look under What's New on our website to have a look at the 2012 late winter slideshow of pictures.
