Wow this was a busy week.   Last Sunday, after OCFM, I rushed home and in record time prepared a birthday dinner for my Autie and our guests.   It was such a frantic rush that I did not even unload my car from the market until Monday morning, but...

It’s fall. Big time. Temperatures are dropping along with brown and orange leaves. The tomato plants are bending beneath the weight of green fruit hoping for enough time. (I’ll be picking them before we get frost.) The zucchini, cucumbers and beans are...

Blog: Wild Things Farm   -   Sunday September 23, 2012   -   By Terry

We've spent most of our lives being told to "eat your vegetables" and now that we are, we're being told to "eat your green vegetables".  For years and years I tried to act as though I liked greens (spinach, turnip, chard, kale,...

Blog: L'Ecuyer Gardens   -   Tuesday July 24, 2012   -   By Twilya

I spent most of the day in the Masonic Temple Parking Lot in Marysville, KS and it was an okay day despite the heat.   Tom and the girls surprised me with a visit and yes I had both girls out waiving to cars for a short period of time.   Again I...

Ears and Ears of Sweet Corn!

Blog: L'Ecuyer Gardens   -   Tuesday July 17, 2012   -   By Twilya

We have sweet corn running out our ears… literally.   It is cross-pollinated between Peaches & Cream and Ambrosia and it is so good.   There is a lot of sweet corn out there but do not be fooled.   Ours is better.   Livie and I...

Fresh & Fabulous Monday!

Blog: L'Ecuyer Gardens   -   Monday July 09, 2012   -   By Twilya

It is Monday Morning and the rain missed us!   Neighboring counties to the east received way too much and we received barely a sprinkle.   It is cooler and for that I am grateful.  Yesterday was a very good day at the market for me and...

We ENJOYED our first beefsteak tomato of the season.   It was big enough one tomato was all we needed.   It was good, full of flavor and just the right amount of acidity.   I have several more that are available now and several more that...

Saturday

Blog: L'Ecuyer Gardens   -   Saturday June 16, 2012   -   By Twilya

It rained and they say more is coming.   Tom is relieved … so am I.   It came softly and the clouds moved in and so most of it is soaking in.   We still need more but this was as close to a perfect rain as it probably gets.   For now...
