Champaign, OH: Winter
And it sure been a cold, cold winter
And the wind ain’t been blowin’ from the south…
(Winter-The Rolling Stones)
Little local market of love customers…it’s a winter day, out there!!
I am just planning all of my meal plans for the week, while the wind blows, and the snow swirls. I like a week of planned out breakfasts, planned out dinners. If that part of my life is set, it allows me to continue at the pace I call my other life. My business life.
Summertime is all about winging it, throwing something on the grill, chopping up fresh vegetables, slicing up local fruits as they come into season, but winter…winter is a tricky bag.
I cook much differently in the winter. I like richer sauces, heartier textures, deeply colored vegetables.
I love to menu plan for the week, and, I love cooking/baking large, on the first day of the week, so that I have options, on hand, for the rest of the dishes of the week.
Summer is all about playtime. Winter is all about get me home, pronto, and when I arrive, I want a dinner plan, a glass of wine, candles lit, and the ability to ease into a comfort kind of dinner.
The best way to have the things on hand to accomplish this? Order much of it from our market. The ordering is easy, the pickup is a breeze, the food is all of amazing quality, and it’s local…
Go ahead…menu plan your week, and then place your orders…
It will make these winter days a bit easier…

Conway, AR: Opening Bell: Goat Cheeses, Micro-Greens, Salad Mix, Broccoli!
Good afternoon (from Carissa)!
Hopefully everyone is having a good beginning to 2018. The New Year came in with a cold front and made farming so much more difficult on farmers, their crops and their livestock. As I look out the window at the gloomy, cold day, I long for Spring! There is a bright side though! Because of the milder winters we have had the past few years, insects have continued to be a problem for gardens. Hopefully with the really cold temps that we have had this past week, we will see a decrease in damaging insects in spring and summer! Natural pest control at its best! :) There are so many benefits to cold weather! Check back next week for another.
No lettuce from Rattle’s Garden this week. The cold weather stifled its growth last week and should recover next week.
Chickens are extremely fickle, but are far more intelligent than people give them credit for. And, they are such wonderful garden helpers!!! Egg laying in the winter is one area that chickens are very fickle. VERY cold weather will slow down laying because more of the chickens’ bodily resources have to go into keeping her warm rather than to producing eggs. Another reason for slow laying, even if the winter weather is warm, is daylight. If there is not enough light, some breeds may slow down laying in the wintertime. One thing’s for sure, they are doing their best!!! :)
Rutabagas coming soon!
We have the best Growers in Central Arkansas! Please learn more about them on Our Growers page.
