The healing power of food. This is the veg version of most favorite meal growing up: tuna casserole (my most requested birthday meal)
.
Made with our shiitakes, chickpeas, green peas, carrots, onions, cheese, egg noodlers, and of course, wavy potato chips on top.
.
Just wanted to share a moment of calm 🧡🌱🧡
.
Funnily enough, the day after I made this my mom made her favorite childhood meal, also slightly altered. Her mom made an Iowa version of chicken curry. My mom made it with homemade turkey broth, instead of the “traditional” base.

Just a friendly reminder that flowers will still bloom!
.
Last week I went rogue from the garden plan and started *every* *single* old flower and herb seed we had.
.
And a lot of them are coming up.
.
💥🌸💖🌱🌻🥳
.
And to follow up on the CSA prospect, I will be sending out information for it by the beginning of next week! If you are interested please email me at [email protected]

Oh hey! We’re socially distant in non-pandemic times, so this doesn’t feel too different for us just yet.
.
Knowing the hustle is even harder for people to make ends meet due to the demands to flatten the curve of COVID-19 is weighing on us though and with not knowing the future of the Courthouse Farmers Market is certainly stressful.
.
So we’re considering starting a small CSA. We’re still planting and will soon have a LOT of veggies looking for a home.
.
Would people be interested? Would you pick it up at a designated drop off or would you pay a higher amount for home delivery? It would include fresh veggies, mushrooms, herbs and flowers, and an option for bread and/or a sweet treat.
.
Let us know! And of course we are keeping up to date with all current food handling safety and precautions and will share our practices and procedures!
.
Stay safe, healthy, and help others if you can 🧡🧡🧡

I just dropped off some fresh bread babies at the Levels Depot in Hillsboro.
.
And I want to thank everyone for asking me when I’m baking again during my little baking vacation. You really know how to make a baker feel appreciated 🧡🥖🧡

Get it while it’s fresh!

I didn’t have time to let them proof quite long enough and next time I’m going to try out a higher hydration level. I’m excited to experiment more with rye flours!

Apple Cider Rye proofing now!
.
I haven’t baked much with rye flour, just throwing it in here and there with some caraway. But I’ve been saying for a while that I really am going to start experimenting with it.
.
Today is the day! This isn’t a sourdough trial, but it just made sense to me to start with a recipe that where the 71% hydration was provided by cider.
.
Our neighbors @hawkknob & @blessed___bee are the best cider makers around, and I’m day dreaming of some excellent pairings right.
.
Cold cider with flavorful rye with a soft cheese? Brie? Caramelized onions??! 🥂🥖🧅🧃🍽
.
Thanks @blessed___bee for the cider!

#farmerootd appropriate for sitting at the DMV while the entire state’s system was down 🤦🏻‍♀️, meeting with our accountant for a final Quickbooks training session, and finding the perfect thank you gift for our neighbors for picking up our mail while we were away (a book of different bird houses and how to build them) (they’re retired).

Me-Made: Shifty Sweater, Hipster Shawl
.
RTW & Altered: Madewell Skinny Overalls
.
@dreareneeknits is right about the Shifty Sweater going great under overalls!
.
Also, worked on interview questions today for featuring other wonderful farmers on this feed in the near future! If you’re interested DM me here. I’m looking forward to featuring stories of woman-identified farmers and how they live life in the clothes they choose, how clothes, bodies, and farming all influence their lives, and more!

To celebrate the end of the market season I made a wonderful brunch for a couple friends!
.
Open-faced sammies with fried green tomatoes with over easy eggs, super sharp white cheddar cheese, mayo, and lightly sautéed baby mesclun mix with olive oil, lemon juice, & garlic powder on WUF plain sourdough of course! And some mini-mimosas 🍾🥂
.
I made breadcrumbs out of a loaf of bread that didn’t turn out right for sandwiches, but made 👌🏼👌🏼👌🏼 breading for the green tomatoes! The green tomatoes came from Bootstrap Farm and we grew the mesclun mix.
.
This season has been a great learning experience for us and we can’t wait for next year!
.
Well, we’re looking forward to the break, but we’re excited to see y’all next year!

We spent the day prepping the garlic beds and getting some garlic planted! We are planting A LOT so we can save the seed next year for planting and have plenty to sell and eat. Today we got in around 750 cloves.
.
And we are finishing getting ready for the last market of the year tomorrow!
.
We’re bringing-
.
Produce: kale, mesclun mix, potatoes, butternut squash, and delicata squash
.
Bread: garlic & herbs, plain, raisin rye, and rye cinnamon rolls!
.
Come out and celebrate a productive season with us! In Lewisburg at the Courthouse Farmers Market.

It’s a BEAUTIFUL fall day in Pocahontas county!
.
I just dropped off fresh bread The Levels Depot on 219 in Hillsboro. Both the Seeds and the Plain are available.
.
They will be fresh until Saturday when they will be frozen and available. Get them fresh while you can! If it were me I would make a grilled cheese and tomato soup, or French toast, or soup with bread and butter, or maybe a toasted PB&J!
.
Also, I’ll be posting bread on the @turnrow.farms onljne market today that will be delivered next week if you’re not in the Hillsboro area!

Photography is not my special skill, but small wedding cakes are!
.
Created this beauty for Morgan & Matt in Lewisburg. He studies birds and she studies forest plants, so we made a perfectly woodsy, nature-y cake with chocolate cake and strawberry compote on the top, vanilla butter cake and lemon curd on the bottom, with maple buttercream on the outside!
.
This sweet cake topper is from the Etsy seller WoodenHeartButtons and I must say was perfect!
.
Check out my stories for a close up of the piped buttercream leaves at the base!

QUESTION
.
Believe it or not, Adam and I don’t always agree on best practices.
.
What do you do with drip tape at the end of the season?
.
I have reused it on the farms and gardens I’ve worked in. In Adam’s experience the farms throw it away at the end of the season.
.
We both agree the BEST practice is to avoid it as much as possible and utilize sprinklers more and water at night, especially on our small scale.
.
But, here we are starting to wrap up some of the beds and we received free drip tape through a gardening program and we need to decide what to do about it now!

We will be at the Lewisburg Farmers Market this week!
.
We’re bringing a smattering of produce, but more importantly we’re bringing properly leavened bread!
.
Thank you so so SO much for your understanding & support last week even though the bread just wasn’t right. We hate to waste here and I’m glad those dense loaves went to loving homes.
.
This week we are bringing a couple new & improve recipes! The plain with a touch of Kamut flour to add to taste, a multigrain loaf with bulgar, organic cracked corn, and oats, and a far superior whole wheat cinnamon raisin loaf! Including of course, sourdough cinnamon rolls with an improved glaze to match 😍😍😍

Emily Sullivan, your bread is heavenly. Even frozen, from Levels Depot! Never ate such a scrumptious bread. In French Toast, or plain toast with butter, To Die For!
