Magney Legacy Ridge Farm:  CSA #15


Dear CSA-ers,

This week’s preassembled bag will contain Malabar Spinach, Romaine Head Lettuce, Garlic, Tomatoes (Cherry and Pink Slicers), Dill, Mint, and Swiss Chard. Custom orders can be placed on the site between now and Tuesday evening at https://magneyfarm.locallygrown.net/market
It’s been a week of both unprecedented challenges and successes here on the farm. With Ray, Jonah, Hannah, and Eric visiting family in Minnesota, we were down to the core. This made for extra farm responsibilities for us, and put time constraints on the planting, harvesting, and packing that we ordinarily handle. This caused for some heated moments, but ultimately, we came together and pulled through. We succeeded in fulfilling CSA, ran all three farmers’ markets, and got 14 of our grow beds planted, which may be a week record! Wow!
Even though the oppressive heat, and thick-enough-to-drink humidity makes the cool crisp air of Autumn seem far away, this is the critical time to get Fall crops started and in the ground. One of the most difficult things about farming is getting the timing correct. We must adapt to the uncontrollable elements like weather and find harmony within the rhythm of rhythms. Things being seeded right now include broccoli, veronica, collards, kale, beets, carrots, and radishes. We can’t wait to bring these to you and your loved ones.
On the topic of timings, a vegetable we’d like to highlight this week is our garlic. Growing garlic is truly a year long endeavor. The process began the week of the full moon last October when we planted cloves of garlic. Over the Winter, the cloves made tiny green sprouts and sent down deep roots preparing for Spring growth. Over the Spring, the plants fill out, flower (which you received as scapes), and then go dormant. When the plants go dormant in Late June, we harvest them and begin the “curing” process, which is a means by which the bulbs are hanged and dried for long storage. Now that curing is complete, they are ready for your bags this week and can be stored at room temperature on your kitchen counter. Garlic has been linked to heart health, and we like to believe it’s because so much love goes into growing them. We hope you love them too!

Thanks for being a part of our family,
The Magney Legacy Ridge Farm Team

Farm News of the Week:

Several New Items

Carter Smith of CS3 Farms writes:

We are back from Florida, where it is hot and humid — just like home! We have another ”traditional” tea available. We are adding Oolong tea because it, like many herbs and other teas, has been demonstrated to have antioxidant properties. It also tastes quite good. We may have some sweet potato greens available, but not a whole lot. If you haven’t eaten sweet potato greens, they are a mild leaf that can be substituted for spinach or a thin lettuce leaf and eaten raw or cooked.

We have more turnips available as well as our herbal honeys, shrub (drinking vinegar) concentrates, nut butters, and other deliciousness.

(Top, L to R): Oolong Tea, Sweet Potato Greens.
(Bottom, L to R): Turnips, Habanero-Infused Honey.

Knottynuffacres has added fresh Thai and regular basil to the market.



Meet & Greet this Friday in Tullahoma

Come to “Nature’s Elite” on Friday between 4:00 and 5:00 to meet some of the local farmers who grow the fresh farm products sold on this market! A few of the farms which will be represented include:
Dogwood Valley Greenhouse
Frontier Family Farms
Knottynuffacres
and others as they confirm. Come on down to Nature’s Elite and see some of the goodies we’ll have for sale!



News from Sow’s Ear Piggery:

We will be updating pork listings in 2-3 weeks once a butcher date is set. We hope our customers will be patient for our new products, as this will probably be the best pork we’ve raised and offered for sale.



Weaver Farms has put all their products on “vacation mode” for a couple of weeks. They’ve been blessed with lots of sales of late, and need a little time to restock supplies. But their great grassfed beef and pasture raised pork will be back as soon as possible!

Cindy’s Suds items are also on “vacation mode” this week, and should return next week.
