Yalaha, FL:  Wheatgrass available


We DO have plenty of Wheatgrass this week.

Order now through 5 pm Thursday February 21st for Friday Feb 22nd or Saturday February 23rd Pickup, (or contact me if you want a different day, we do have some flexibility.) This week Friday may be best or early Sat Morning.

Remember to tell me when you want to pick up!

Hi All, Just want to share that I have been getting back into fermenting again. Let me know if you are interested in getting fresh cultures for Kombucha, Milk Kefir, or Water Kefir. My Kefir grains especially have been growing fast. The Kombucha scoby is a little slower about it.

Please let me know what micro greens or shoots you are interested in and I can start growing enough to make them available (most take less than 2 weeks.)
Also, if you want me to list super foods like Purslane, let me know, I have it volunteering wild here and I will likely also have nettles come winter/spring season.

If you have any particular requests, let me know I’m happy to grow to order.

Sign in to order. https://yalaha.locallygrown.net/market

You have to sign in to see the add to cart button. Then set the number and click the add to cart button on the items you want to buy (it is the little picture right next to the quantity box.) Remember you need to check out before your order will be placed.
Remember to let me know when you want to pick up on Sat or maybe even Friday late afternoon or on Sunday. (If I don’t send you an e-mail confirmation of your order and pick up time, please make sure you checked out and completed your order.)

Manchester Locally Grown:  Reminder: Ordering Closes at 10 pm



Manchester Locally Grown market





Our pickup location is across the street from the Manchester City Schools administration building, at

216 East Fort Street, Manchester, TN

If you don’t see a map, click on the address link.




Good morning!




This is just a friendly reminder to place your order online for this week. Market ordering will close tonight at 10 pm. Please don’t forget to place your order soon! But if you do forget to order, give me (Linda) a call Wednesday morning. I will most likely be able to get hold of the farmers and place a late order for you.

Remember to hit that last “submit” button. I really dislike disappointing a customer who comes to market, only to find no order in their name because they didn’t hit the last button. When your order is placed, you will receive an email confirmation. If for any reason you fail to receive this confirmation, please contact Linda as soon as you realize it’s missing.

Also please go to our Facebook page and like, comment, and share this week’s post. Facebook isn’t allowing me to post on multiple sites, or sometimes post multiple photos. So please help us spread the word. Surveys indicate that word of mouth is the most effective form of advertisement. Please help us advertise our fantastic growing market!

See you on Thursday!


Blessings,
Michael & Linda

Fresh Harvest, LLC:  Last Call for 2 Weeks - Fresh Harvest




Market News

Hello!
There is a new item listed, Baby Kale. More Cilantro and Beets have been added to the Market. There are still a few eggs. If you want me to add items to an existing order, you can email me or place another order.

The Market will remain open until Tuesday evening for you to place an order for this week. Next delivery day will be March 6th.

Here is some information on how Fresh Harvest works.
*If you see an item as Sold Out, write in the Comment section at check out that you would like that item if more becomes available. We’ll try our best to add it to your order.
• If you recruit a new customer to Fresh Harvest and they open an account with a $50 deposit, we will credit your account $10 for each new customer who signs up. They will need to tell me your name, so that I can credit your account. Word of mouth has been our best advertising. Any help that you can provide is greatly appreciated.
• Every week, we leave orders at the church for customers who cannot arrive at Trinity before 6pm. This has worked well for those who have difficulty with the 4-6pm window. Please let me know if you need me to leave your order at the church.
• The bag that you receive each week is to be brought back with your next order. We have been negligent in telling new customers how this works. Don’t feel bad if you return multiple bags, it happens all the time.
• We’re into reusing and recycling. Our clean egg cartons, honey jars, paper and plastic bags, berry containers are some of the items that we can reuse. If we can’t reuse the returned items, we’ll recycle them.
• We do guarantee everything that we sell. If you ever have a problem, please let us know and we will credit your account.
• If there are other products or growers that you think should be a part of Fresh Harvest, please let me know.

Thanks for your support, and I will see you on Wednesday!

If you need to text me, my number is 615-838-0428.

Recipes


Mushroom Frittata with Pecorino Romano
12 large eggs
1/3 cup whole milk
salt & pepper
1 tablespoon olive oil
1 pound mushrooms, stemmed & cut into 1/2 inch pieces
2 tablespoons water
2 scallions, white parts minced, green parts sliced thin
1 tablespoon sherry vinegar
1 1/2 teaspoons minced fresh thyme
2 1/4 ounces Pecorino Romano, shredded (3/4 cup)

1. Adjust oven rack to middle position and heat oven to 350 degrees. Whisk eggs, milk, and 1/2 teaspoon salt in bowl until well combined. 2. Heat oil in 12-inch ovensafe nonstick skillet over medium-high heat until shimmering. Add mushrooms, 1/4 teaspoon salt, and 1/4 teaspoon pepper; cook, stirring frequently, until mushrooms are tender and spotty brown, 7 to 9 minutes. Add water, scallion whites, vinegar, and thyme; continue to cook, stirring constantly, until no water remains in skillet, about 1 minute longer. 3. Add Pecorino, scallion greens, and egg mixture and cook, using rubber spatula to stir and scrape bottom of skillet until large curds form and spatula leaves trail through eggs but eggs are still very wet, about 30 seconds. Smooth curds into even layer and cook, without stirring, for 30 seconds. Transfer skillet to oven and bake until frittata is slightly puffy and surface bounces back when lightly pressed, 6 to 9 minutes. Using rubber spatula, loosen frittata from skillet and transfer to cutting board. Let stand for 5 minutes before slicing and serving.

Easy to Peel Hard Boiled Eggs
Be sure to use large eggs that have no cracks and are cold from the refrigerator. If you don’t have a steamer basket, use a spoon or tongs to gently place the eggs in the water. It does not matter if the eggs are above the water or partially submerged. You can use this method for fewer than six eggs without altering the timing. You can also double this recipe as long as you use a pot and steamer basket large enough to hold the eggs in a single layer. There’s no need to peel the eggs right away. They can be stored in their shells and peeled when needed. 1. Bring 1 inch water to rolling boil in medium saucepan over high heat. Place eggs in steamer basket. Transfer basket to saucepan. Cover, reduce heat to medium-low, and cook eggs for 13 minutes. 2. When eggs are almost finished cooking, combine 2 cups ice cubes and 2 cups cold water in medium bowl. Using tongs or spoon, transfer eggs to ice bath; let sit for 15 minutes.
