New Recipe; Quiche

One 1/2 of a pie crust recipe rolled and fitted to a  9'-10' deep pie pan or casserole dish. I cheat and use the ready made crusts.

Recently I made one using greens and herbs from the garden.

1 med onion thinly sliced                                   1c. fresh mushrooms sliced                           1/2 cup diced sun dried tomatoes                     1 c. chopped sorrel                                             1 c. spinach                                                   1/4 c. finely   chopped garlic chives                  8 eggs                                                                  1 3/4 c. cream                                                 2c. shredded swiss cheese                                  1t. savory                                                            1/2 t. nutmeg                                                         salt & pepper to taste

News from  the farm

May 7th 2018

     Hey y'all;

We will be getting a tractor sometime this week, Yeah!  Ours blew up last fall so we have had to borrow, ask friends to till for us. No bush hogging has been done so we are very ragged around the edges. The berry patch  is definitely in a need of a hair cut. Looks like a big fall/winter project.  We are going to get the hard water lines out to the fields this year. A rocket mass heater in the greenhouse this fall after the markets quit. All the high tunnels need to be recovered.  The list goes on. 

We do want to give everyone a big thank you for supporting us this winter.

We have a young man that is farming with us this year.  Some much needed help for us older slower people. So we have expanded our vegetable production , and are doing another market. It has been a slow start to our season but we will be ramped up for the summer and hope to be producing a lot for the winter. So wish us luck with our plans and we will see you at market.
