The summer gardening season is underway at Cedar Rock Ridge. This morning I transplanted 36 Brad’s atomic grape tomatoes into their individual 2 1/2 inch pots. I will grow some of the plants and list the rest so you can grow them in your gardens. It’s a wonderful variety. I noticed about 20 Jalafuego jalapeño sprouts as well. Those will yield big pods with traditional jalapeño heat. Great for pepper poppers!

Kohlrabi? Yes, please!

A fresh batch of zesty barbecue sauce from Cedar Rock Ridge is now listed. The heat comes from my organic jalapeños that I smoke over peach wood for 6 hours. Warning: this batch is a little spicier than normal. Sweet and hot but oh so good. It’ll change your life!

Search for Maria’s wonderful BBQ pulled pork this week. She has a few 1-pound packages listed.

We’ve been having a lot of excellent items on the extra table lately. Earlier shoppers get the best selection. We are normally ready for customers to start arriving around 3 PM if you happen to be out and in the area. Just text me to see if we’re ready.

Be sure to SEARCH for your favorite items using the search field. Four instance, type in the word “sale” and see what pops up. We have over 500 items available now!

Most items are listed by 6pm Sunday, but check back again before the market closes Tuesday night to see if any other items are ready to be harvested for you! Eat fresh! Eat local! Eat for better health!

And save your eggshells throughout the week for the laying hens! :-)

The market is now OPEN for orders. Click here to start shopping:

Please check your email a few minutes after you place your order to make sure you get an order confirmation. Thanks!

Magney Legacy Ridge Farm:  CSA Newsletter

Dear CSA-ers,

Just a newsletter this week. We will not be having a bonus market as we are busy preparing for the main season CSA which will begin in March. All the seeds are ordered and have arrived. If you’ve been following along our facebook page, you might’ve seen a photo of Caroline preparing seed trays in the greenhouse. In just two weeks’ time, those trays should be ready for planting outside. It is remarkable to think that this time last year, that greenhouse was not even constructed. In many ways, we are far ahead of where we were last year.
Yet being prepared and being without anxieties are not the same thing. Outdoor plots are still very wet from historic winter rainfall. It has been our strategy to pursue very early plantings of all vegetable varieties. When it’s sunny and 68° in February that seems like the right move, but dips down to 14° are a bit hair raising. Nothing is certain in agriculture, but so it is with life as well.
There will still be a seasonal ebb and flow of vegetable varieties, even with early plantings. If you’re new to CSA, here’s an idea of what you can expect. Spring will have many leafy greens and rooted vegetables. As we reach summer, variety will expand. Some leafy greens will depart in the warm weather, but bold Summer vegetables like zucchini, cucumbers, and tomatoes will take their place. Towards the end of summer, late ripening peppers, eggplants, and melons will arrive. Autumn will see the return of leafy greens, as well as the arrival of hearty vegetables like winter squash, brussel sprouts, and cauliflower. By participating in CSA, you will get to experience fresh, local, seasonal eating. We hope that in doing so, you come to feel more deeply connected to the Earth from which our produce grows.
Though there is no bonus market this week, the market is open for the purchase of the 10, 20, and 40 week membership equivalents with their respective discounts. If you have any friends or neighbors who might be interested in receiving our local, organically grown produce, please encourage them to sign up!

As always, we thank you for your support,
The Magney Legacy Ridge Farm Team

Foothills Market:  The Market is Open!

This is the time of winter when I get the blahs. The weather tends to be gray and chilly, and people all around seem to be coming down with something – flu or a cold or just what I call the yucks.

Maybe Foothills Market can help in a small way. If you’re feeling a little under the weather, maybe a hot soup made with some pork bones or beef oso bucco will warm you. If your throat is a little raw from a cold, maybe you could use the old-timers’ remedy – a spoonful of honey and a cup of lemongrass tea (Ok, old-timers probably didn’t use lemongrass….). Another old-time solution to the winter blahs was a “mess” of greens, and we’ve got turnip or mustard greens to pair with some hog jowl to chase away the blahs. Or maybe you just treat yourself to some cookies or peanut brittle and wait it out.

Shop the market between now and Wednesday at 5:00 p.m. We’ll have your order ready for pickup on Thursday from 5-5:30 p.m.

Eat something fresh this week!
