Update on the Farm/ Buyer’s Group/ Recipes/ CSA Membership



Update on The Farm–starting to plant Fingerlings today–Tom Thumb variety which is an early variety is first to go into the ground.  Last year we experimented with fingerlings and found GREAT success.  This year we have ordered five kinds to carry us through the season:  Tom Thumb, Amarosa, LaRatte, French Fingerling (Heirloom), and Rose Finn Apple (storage).

Buyer’s Group–I have extra Limes and Green Leaf Lettuce.  If you need some and want to take a nice Spring drive out to The Farm today…the Lettuce is $2.50 and limes are 4 for $1.  I also have two bags of Gala apples (3#) for $5.00 each.  This week we donated to Apple Apartments some of the surplus.  Next Buyer’s Group is May 7th!

Two New Recipes have been posted to  #52. Roasted Garnet Yams (good for all yams, but especially the orange-fleshed), and #53. Sautéed Collards with Bacon.  Both are Southern favorites–in our quest to broaden our taste bud experiences, the Buyer’s Group this week featured Collard Greens and Yams (Sweet Potatoes)!  Check out some of the other recipes, too, at the website.  RECIPE page is a list…sorry no click and open function…to print scroll to the recipe number you want, then highlight, right click, copy, and paste into your Word program.  Print.

CSA Membership is slowly coming along.  Sorry I haven’t had time to make calls and visit people, but I’ve been consumed with trying to keep up with things and have added the care of my mother’s finances and cleaning out her home for sale…and her van.  Feel free to invite friends, neighbors, work associates, and relatives to be a part of the Local Food Movement and join Lloyd Craft Farms CSA–our success is your success!  Flexible payment plans, reasonable prices on Vegetables with unparalleled quality and nutritional value–IT’s PERFECT FOOD BY GOLLY–and the option to add a Fruit Share, and soon to come Market Day Share.  Contact me for more information–431-1219.


Thanks, The Farmer’s Wife
