New Year's Savings
A Note from the Farmer's Wife
The stillness of the farm echoes our deep aching need for rest. After a quiet week in beautiful, albeit gray, Sullivan county, we rouse ourselves to return to simple preparatory tasks for the coming season. Many of our loyal, veggie-eating fans, have already signed on for the 2016 CSA, enabling us to order a huge pile of supplies necessary for the startup of the nursery. Before long, tray after tray of potting soil with be filled with seeds and promise for a green and abundant spring.
The truth is, an overly mild winter has kept us harvesting. Since the Holiday Box in December, we have been bringing beautiful greens, carrots and potatoes to West Chester Grower’s Market, and the Farmer will be there on Saturday January 2. Why not stop by and give him some warmth and cheer, and then tootle over to the Brandywine Museum to see the wonderful model train display?
We want to let you know that we have extended the Early Registration discount until January 21. Since we have been so sleepy and incommunicative on our end, we felt that you might need a little more time to be reminded. To receive the discount, simply login to your account (or create a new one, if you are not already a member) select your pick up site, shares and submit payment before the January 21 deadline. The discount is automatically applied during this time period, but expires if payment is not received by the deadline. Your early registration is essential for us to get a leg up on our supplies when winter discounts apply. We are very grateful to all who joined in December; those registrations saved us over $1000 in supply discounts.
Please spread the word in your community. Let people know that Red Earth Farm is the only CSA in the area that offers online ordering…and of course top notch produce. Our customers are our number one source of new members. Drop by our Facebook page and share a post, or tweet, or simply talk it up with your friends.
Wishing you all a healthy, peaceful and bountiful New Year!

Lady Kale
A Note from the Farmer's Wife
In response to last week's blog post, which featured a recipe for the Patti LaBelle pie, I received this email from a CSA member: "I just wanted to let you know that I share my vegetables with Patti and she is using your sweet potatoes and vegetables for her Thanksgiving. She says you have the best Kale and Okra! We are both very sad to wait until the season starts again."
"Wait a second," I replied, "Do you mean THE Patti LaBelle??!! The Patti LaBelle who crooned me through college? The On-My-Own-Lady-Marmalade-Your-Are-My-Friend-Patti? Are you seriously telling me the Queen of Rock and Soul eats OUR vegetables?!"
Turns out that the answer is yes! In case you didn't know, Ms. Patti loves to cook. By now you probably heard about her famous Sweet Potato Pie, a sold out phenomenon available at a certain massive box store. To learn more, I checked out her website and found an array of sauces and recipes right out of her kitchen. Check out this recipe for Lemon Turkey.
As the Farmer and I sat at our Thanksgiving table, loaded with brussels sprouts, parsnips, carrots, celeriac, baby salad, mashed potatoes and a beautiful turkey raised by Broad Wing Farm, we took a moment to picture all of our loyal veggie fans doing the same. We thought about how wonderful it is to be connected to everyone through the ground, and pictured many happy faces eating sprouts and spuds. What an honor that one of those happy faces belongs to Ms. Patti LaBelle. Now all we want to know is did she make one of her famous sweet potato pies with a Red Earth monster spud?
