I'd never really eaten okra before we began to grow it. Last year we focused on the green - and when I saw seeds for these heirloom burgundy (or red) okra, I knew I had to order packages - just because they're beautiful...and so good for you!
Ever thought about raising chickens or just needing more information about the care of your egg giving pets that you have? There's still time to register for this class that's coming up THIS Sunday at our farm from 1:30 - 3:30. Cost is $20 for family.
I love my Farm Chick Friends who hold the same values of pure, good and organic that we do at The Simple Farm.
The other day, Rebecca Kidwell of Farmyard called to order a few of our "beauty" farm products to add to a "thank you basket" to give to a client of hers (I think this is the client - the school that Rebecca and her sister Sarah took care of - building these raised beds, planting the organics for these children!)
And, of course there is Rebecca's amazing sweet basil pesto!
It's such a privilege to be included in the company of women who wear flip flops while digging in the dirt and educating our communities how to live sustainably, build that sense of community and understand how important it is for all of us to start growing their own food.
On that note, I want you all to get on your December 4th calendars NOW the date for a garden tour you won't want to find yourself on the short end of getting a reserved ticket for. It's called Arcadia's Edible Garden Tour and The Simple Farm is so excited (even though we're not in the Arcadia district) to be on the tours list. Here are some pics from last years tour. Tickets will go on sale soon and I'm hoping you're first in line!
For various reasons, todays (October 16th) Bee Keeping Class has been postponed until early spring. We so apologize for any inconveniences this schedule change has caused. For all those who were interested, we'll keep you updated as to the next scheduled class with the valley's number one bee keeper - Emily Brown.
