Champaign, OH:  Mr. Tambourine Man


Take me for a trip upon your magic swirlin’ ship…

Putting a little bit of Dylan into your Sunday morning, and, with this cold day, I am going to settle in to practice with all of my musical instruments. And, I am sure of no surprise, one of those is a tambourine…

Anyway, getting on with this market, this cold day, and the fact that you have a whole Sunday at your fingertips, why not use the time to place your orders?

And…to warm your soul, your market manager has updated all quantities of Cosmic soups! I must have been lulled into the long vacation we took from the market, over the holidays, and I never checked that I was out of all soups!

Anyway…so much to offer on this market, but you first must order to get to enjoy it all…

XOXO,
Cosmic Pam

Grower Notes


EASY PEASY PICKLES

What follows originated with a sisterly Christmas gift – a jar of homemade pickled radishes with carrots. They were DIVINE. The recipe was a text of a text of a text of a photo from a book or magazine. . . (don’t you love technology?). Baby Sis had changed the recipe and used Swerve instead of sugar. We changed it up by using watermelon radishes from Avalon and skipping the carrots.

Mom is in the kitchen making another batch today. We now know to expect the pretty pink of the watermelon radishes to change the brine, but the taste more than makes up for the aesthetics. No doubt this method can be used with other root vegetables so if you try something different before we do, let us know and we’ll share it with the rest of our Market family. (Ros)

Swerve Radish Pickles
Originally Vietnamese Daikon & Carrot Pickles


1. Prepare 4 lb of radishes by peeling and slicing them, Slices a bit smaller than ¼ inch thickness work best.

2. Mix 4 tsp Swerve (or other erythritol product) with 2 tsp salt. Set Aside.

3. Mix 1 cup Swerve (or other erythritol product) with 2 cups warm water (to dissolve) and 2 ½ cups white vinegar. Set Aside.

4. Sprinkle sugar/salt mixture over prepared radishes. Massage it into the vegetables till they are pliable and bend easily. Rinse well and drain.

5. Pack vegetables in clean jars with lids. Pour liquid mixture over the radishes.

6. Seal Jars. Refrigerate overnight before using. The flavor improves over time and the pickles keep 4-6 weeks in the refrigerator.

MARKET CHITCHAT

Wasn’t yesterday about the most perfect Market pickup day ever? Even though it was chilly the wind was kind and between the beautiful vegetables and great company we could not ask for a lovelier day or better folks to spend it with. We really do love serving you!

THANK YOU for your kind patience with the Market opening late last week. The back story is that at 3pm Saturday Ros knew she was in trouble as the the approaching weather had already eliminated all internet service upstate where she was. Thankfully Viki Richter agreed to open us on time, but by 5 pm the severe weather was in south Alabama giving Viki technical trouble as well! Just goes to show that sometimes no matter how well we prepare nature still shows us up!

We have a few new products this week. You may view them near the top of the Market Page.

GROWER NOTES

We have the best Growers in the Wiregrass! Please learn more about them on our Grower Page.

MAYIM FARM Mayim Farm will be taking a break this market cycle while attending the annual “Southern Sustainable Agriculture Working Group Conference” (SSAWG) and the “2020 Organic Agriculture Research Forum”(OFRF) in Little Rock. Mayim Farm received a scholarship from the Organic Research Foundation to attend the conference and forum. This is a wonderful opportunity for us to participate in, and learn more about the latest regenerative and organic practices in 2020. We strive to grow the most nutrient dense food and medicine for our clients through these breakthrough practices. We’ll see you again in a couple weeks rested and with new ideas to implement.

AVALON FARMS Avalon Farms
We’ve seen the last of the Arugula and Spinach. This 2 weeks of warm weather has signaled them to produce flowers and eventually seeds. That is the plants goal to reproduce itself by producing seeds for next year. The Kales and Senposia are handling the weather better and are not flowering. 

The chickens have enjoyed the warmer weather and are laying like champs. Please buy more eggs!!! I’m swimming in them over here. : )

Greenhouse construction continues…hampered by Mr. Farmer’s off farm job and rain. (Seems to always rain when he’s home. I smell a conspiracy.) (Mr. Farmer, “The power of prayer.”)
