Save The Date– Saturday, November 27th–Black Friday Saturday…

Sound confusing? I guess I should have called it Black Saturday…the day after Black Friday…and WHAT does ‘Black’ mean exactly, as in “Black Friday”? A quick internet search found all sorts of ‘roots’, but the most recent (and logical to the retailing business) is the day after Thanksgiving, the official first day of shopping for the Christmas holidays! Another detail I found was as an accounting reference…red numbers are days where the retailer loses money and black numbers are days the retailer makes money…thus a great day for holiday buys where the consumer saves money and the merchant makes money!

So Black Saturday it is–you save 10% storewide (except for the new fine Starshine Artiworks jewelry in the gold display case), and we move a lot of inventory to make room for more…and we do have a small store stuffed with great stuff!

Gift ideas: Candles, Queen Bee Honey Candies and Caramels, Journals and Day-timers, Artisan Made note cards (Denise, Star, and Jeni), Incense and Essential Oils (couple of glass diffusers on hand, a wood tower diffuser, and more coming for the holidays), Foaming Bath Packets and Bubble baths, wide selection of teas and teaspoon infusers, as well as good fixings for a Kitchen Gift Basket, or anyother you might have in mind (we’ll help you create it!).

We will be closed Thursday and Friday for time with our families. We’ll be open Saturday at 10:00 am for the BLACK Friday SATURDAY, so set the day aside and come and see us–Bee Healthy, 635 Big Horn Ave, Worland, Wyoming

What’s New with Lloyd Craft Farms & Bee Healthy?

The season is a changing, and with it a change in activities…less time in the garden and more time in the store!

**Liz spent this week bringing in the fall decor. Lloyd and Jared brought in the pumpkins! Terri filled the CSA boxes, and Kaleb helped stocked the shelves with our Friday order. Liz and I are so thankful for Becky and Diane at Bee Healthy who helped during this busy time of year! With their help we have continued to provide good healthy foods and an abundance of supplements, as well as unique gift ideas and cards, and a diversity of healthy home options such as Biokleen, Aunt Fannies, and Mrs. Meyer’s Clean Day suds and solvents for non-toxic cleaning. Not to forget the CBD products, mushroom extracts, and a good supply of high quality personal care items.

**The garden had its glitches…no tomatoes other than Cherry tomatoes, and odd and erratic growing patterns all season! At one point I thought no veggies to end out the season, which started late. But it will run until the first week in November…YAY! We will have potatoes, carrots, onions, several varieties of cabbages, celery, and lots of cauliflower including the somewhat elusive Romanesco! Broccoli is in shortage, but not sweet peppers (Sweetie Snack and Bell Peppers of all colors…even some remaining Shishito’s) or hot peppers (Poblano, Jalapeno, Pueblo Roasting peppers, Krimzon Lee Paprika, Chili’s drying in the green house, and two mini bushes of Aurora to rival the Habanero in heat). All this will take care of the CSA Members and supply Bee Healthy–

WHAT IS SOME BIG NEWS FOR BEE HEALTHY?

Halloween Pumpkins! Variety of sizes, great handles, and easy to carve! $4.99 and $8.99 each. Warty Pumpkins, too…$2 more each.
Refrigerated Cooler stocked with fresh, locally grown produce from Lloyd Craft Farms! Lots of high quality Celery! Cabbages, carrots, fresh red onions, cauliflowers, orange and green bell peppers, jalapeno peppers, and Shishito peppers…coming soon red beets! Mushrooms in variety from Spokane Produce…Oyster, Crimini, Portabello, Shiitake, and White. Restocked every Thursday!
Finally! More organic bananas, fresh ginger, and fresh turmeric…none of which have been available for the past three weeks! Hope to be able to carry them always–Turmeric (Curcumin) and Ginger Root both are nutrient complete…many supplements carry extracts in higher concentration but not with all the complete nutritional profile…
Fresh healing ROOTS in the glass cooler to the left of the produce–If you find superficial mold on an open edge, trim it off. This does not affect the quality of the remaining root as long as it is still solid. Grate into foods and drinks, add to hot teas, peel and freeze for use later. You might be surprised at the subtle flavor of grated roots–

Week 1 CSA Share Info Sheet

The Veggies look GREAT! Thanks for those that were able to pick them up Thursday and Friday, and another Thanks to those who are picking them up today! (Because they are fresh, they will still be okay for a Monday pickup!) This first group is Group A…A schedule will be posted on the website to help you keep track of your share pick ups. 🙂 If you are going to be later than Thursday, shoot me a text (431-1219)– Next week is Group B

This week’s Box has items from the high tunnels, and Cucumbers and Summer Squash from the garden. The surprise was the 2 oz of Basil.

Basil- Genovese type with large leaves and the traditional basil flavor. Basil does not store well in the fridge, so put the stems in a bit of water or spread them in a pie pan on your counter. Double or triple bag if you must, but do not forget them for more than several days. Basil is versatile and can be used for much more than just Pesto. 😉 Try it chopped with any of your veggies. Herbs give your veggies depth and variety, as well as being healthy. I think herbs are the unknown heroes for healthy bodies and lives. Use them fresh, or dry them yourselves!

Kale, Kohlrabi, and Broccolini are all in the Brassica family– nutrient dense and healthy for us! They can be eaten raw or cooked. Kale- Green Curley and Lacinato (Dinosaur Kale)- can be cut thinly and added to a greens salad, or chopped up and added to cooked potatoes or other dishes. Kohlrabi (AKA German Turnip) are sweet eaten raw, but also great cooked or steamed. I like to cut mine in half and then as thin as possible to dip in Ranch, or grated into a greens salad. Our Broccolini is sweet and the leaves are tender and sweet, too. Broccolini simply means small broccoli–we have four kinds this year…we couldn’t get our favorite seed this year so tried two new ones and used the Atlantis we’ve raised for three years. I usually steam, or cook it in a cast iron skillet with olive oil. (I always steam it a bit to break down some of the stems so they are not tough. Brassica’s affect some folks, causing gas and slight indigestion. Many of the broccoli has an indigestible sugar that is not easily broken down….my question has always been: is it a problem with the broccoli, or is it the gut that is lacking sufficient enzymes or a healthy biome??

Red Cabbage…Ruby Perfection to be specifi…is also in the same family as the broccoli and cauliflower. Red Cabbage can be used in the same way as the green. You may lose some of the red pigmentation during cooking…Raw, it adds beautiful color to any salad. Cabbage pickles easily. (I like the Wildbrine sauerkraut at Bee Healthy–Red Beets and Red Cabbage fermented together, natural probiotics!) Both beets and red cabbage are power houses and high in anthocyanins which are strong antioxidants–

Green Onions–these are from the high tunnel and benefit well from the shade and protection. Some years when we’ve raised them out in the garden they have been susceptible to insect damage and developed a strong pungent flavor. Two years ago we planted them in the fall in the high tunnel but ran out of time to reach maturity. I was so saddened when they ‘died’ in the fall and were reduced to nothing. BUT, then in the spring they came back! Because they are biennial’s they sent out a bloom that became a seed pod. We learned to harvest them earlier than later, before they grew that tough seed stock!

Cucumbers–this week we had our first harvest of slicing cucumbers with one for everyone! AND we also included a 1# bag of Harmonie European Picklers (AKA Snack Cucumbers)– Cucumbers do not store well or hold in the fridge–Eat them first! Protect them from refrigeration damage.

Summer Squash–this week we put 4 summer squash in your box: Zucchini, Costa Romanesco (striped zucchini), Golden Glory (yellow zucchini), and Zephyr (yellow squash with a green tip). I LOVE my summer squash cooked in olive oil or butter, salt and pepper, with a chopped herb….add some green onion or sliced onion, too. Try sliced tomatoes during the last couple of minutes. For herbs, I used Lemon Thyme one day this week, and Savory the second time. Basil is great! I usually add the herbs the last couple minutes of cooking to include the flavor without it being cooked to death!

Enjoy your first Share! Weekly’s–we’ll have a slightly different box next week; Group B Leap-Frog’s…welcome aboard! We have room for more members–share the word and help us fill some of the vacancies!
