CSA Harvest #18

We finished harvest for your CSA bag this morning, and all the veggies are packed and on the way to the pick-up place.

Here's what we are going to have today;

Lettuce Green
Choice of Zucchini or Kohlrabi
Italian Basil
Green Beans
Red Russian Kale
Pepper, Bell/Hot

Night temperature's getting lower and lower and we are getting ready for the first frost as well as cold season. Some of summer vegetable's will be gone soon - zucchini, eggplant, basils etc., but don't be sad, lettuce green's back in season with many other fall crops! We are working on putting our greenhouse back on and setting low tunnels to extend our fall season and to provide delicious veggies for a longER time to your family. If you want to know more about our low poly-tunnell, please check our previous post on Oct 25th, 2009 for the picture.

Our beef is completely sold out and planning to have it available in next year. However our pigs will be ready by November and we are going to take orders soon. If you are interested in or have any questions about our pork, please feel free to contact us at 309-378-2403 or

We usually consume arugula for salad, however we found great cooking recipe for it today! Hope you enjoy!
