I read a most interesting quote that I’d like to share with you all…  Today we eat for entertainment or convenience but not for nutrition.   I’ve been thinking a lot about that quote lately.  It rings true for me with respect to our culture and busy lives (mine included!) but also the different choices one makes when eating for nutrition – three balanced meals each day, making time to cook and eat, staying hydrated with plenty of good water.  It takes effort indeed and the result is good health. 

Among the many raindrops of the last week we managed to transplant the last of the Lettuce seedlings, plant the Okra and October Beans and tie up the tomatoes.  Not yet done are the pole beans to string, more potatoes to hill and Winter Squash rows to mulch with hay.  There is never enough time to get it all done so I just re-prioritize daily, sometimes hourly depending on the weather, and do the best I can.  And yes, each night I do sleep well!

Farm Food Favorite: Kale Chips
I like to use the Dinosaur Kale with its rough texture for making chips.  Preheat oven to 350.  Cut Kale into 1 inch strips, lightly brush olive oil onto baking sheet and rub kale strips until coated.  Sprinkle with garlic salt and bake in oven for 12-15 minutes until crispy.  Enjoy 

I look forward to seeing each of you tomorrow at the CSA pickup from 10 am until noon in our new pick up location at the Rock House Park.  Please bring a bag for your goodies.

Until next week…
