If at first you don't succeed

Joel here

    What was it I was saying last week about optimism and perseverance? 

    Far from any large set back but frustrating none the less has been the two cold weather pest encroaching on one of our fall plantings.  A winter weed and cold weather fungus has taken their toll and today we decided to start over.

    Scuffled up and raked smooth this will make a nice home for early spring lettuce and the first carrots of the season.  With December just beginning and Winter's cold embrace waiting in the shadows it's hard to think of spring. However, on the farm all we can do is thumb through seed catalogs, looking forward to spring plantings.

Here are a few specials for you to look forward to.

David's very own desert island tomato(Juliets) dried to flavor concentrated perfection.

Usually $5/oz  now $10 for 3oz

Sweet Baby Kale, the first cutting on this planting

$6/bag  Double size bag for $10

Even sweeter carrots

Buy 1lb for $5 get 1.5lb

Beets Red orange and striped

Usually $4/lb anything over 2lbs $3/lb

Last but certainly not least one of my favorite things we grow

Turmeric  this root is not only an excellent spice, medicinally speaking it can't be beat  Just a little info here

You'll get a piece worth $10 for $8


Also available

Salad Greens-with baby kale, mizuna, spinach and lettuce $6/bag

Arugula $6/bag

Braising Greens $6/bag

Baby Spinach- $6/bag.
