Worthington Farmers Market: July 12th

“Ol' man Simon, planted a diamond. Grew hisself a garden the likes of none. Sprouts all growin' comin' up glowin' Fruit of jewels all shinin' in the sun. Colors of the rainbow. See the sun and the rain grow sapphires and rubies on ivory vines, Grapes of jade, just ripenin' in the shade, just ready for the squeezin' into green jade wine. Pure gold corn there, Blowin' in the warm air. Ol' crow nibblin' on the amnythyst seeds. In between the diamonds, Ol' man Simon crawls about pullin' out platinum weeds. Pink pearl berries, all you can carry, put 'em in a bushel and haul 'em into town. Up in the tree there's opal nuts and gold pears- Hurry quick, grab a stick and shake some down. Take a silver tater, emerald tomater, fresh plump coral melons. Hangin' in reach. Ol' man Simon, diggin' in his diamonds, stops and rests and dreams about one... real... peach.”

― Shel Silverstein, Where the Sidewalk Ends

Worthington Farmers Market: July 5th

“The single greatest lesson the garden teaches is that our relationship to the planet need not be zero-sum, and that as long as the sun still shines and people still can plan and plant, think and do, we can, if we bother to try, find ways to provide for ourselves without diminishing the world. ”

― Michael Pollan, The Omnivore's Dilemma: A Natural History of Four Meals

Worthington Farmers Market: June 28th

“The first supermarket supposedly appeared on the American landscape in 1946. That is not very long ago. Until then, where was all the food? Dear folks, the food was in homes, gardens, local fields, and forests. It was near kitchens, near tables, near bedsides. It was in the pantry, the cellar, the backyard.” 

― Joel Salatin, Folks, This Ain't Normal: A Farmer's Advice for Happier Hens, Healthier People, and a Better World


BASIL ORZO SALAD WITH CORN, CHICKPEAS, FETA AND SUMMER VEGETABLES

RECIPE BY MOLLY HAYS

This is one of those clever, hard-working recipes: You chop while the water boils, cook the vegetables with the pasta and have dinner made in 20 minutes. It also makes ideal picnic fare, as it holds beautifully, is mayonnaise-free and tastes best at room temperature.

Adapt the vegetables to whatever is good and fresh; only the corn is essential. Lemon basil is fantastic here, if you’ve got it; sweet basil is equally, differently wonderful.

2 teaspoons salt
¾ teaspoons freshly ground pepper
¼ cup white wine vinegar
3 tablespoons fresh lime juice (from 1–2 limes)
¼ cup + 2 tablespoons extra-virgin olive oil
5 ears fresh corn
3 small zucchini, cut into ¼-inch coins (optional)
2 cups greens beans, topped, tailed, and cut into ½-inch bits (optional)
1 sweet red pepper, cored, seeded, and cut into ¼-inch dice
8 ounces orzo pasta
1 bunch (six) scallions, white and pale green ends sliced
1 (15-ounce) tin chickpeas (garbanzo beans)
1½ packed cups sweet or lemon basil, washed and well dried
1 heaping cup feta, crumbled

Set a large stockpot of well-salted water to boil.

In a lidded jar, combine vinegar, lime juice, salt and pepper. Swirl to dissolve salt. Add olive oil, replace lid and shake vigorously to combine. Set aside.

Stand shucked ears of corn upright in a wide, shallow bowl, and cut off kernels with a sharp knife, just to the cob. Set aside. Slice zucchini and green beans if using, and set aside together, separately from the corn. (These vegetables will be added to the pasta water in two stages: first the zucchini and green beans, then the corn.)

In a large serving bowl, combine diced red pepper, sliced scallions, slivered basil and ⅔ of feta, and set aside.

When pasta water comes to the boil, add orzo and set timer to 5 minutes fewer than final cooking time (mine took 10; I set the timer to 5). When orzo is 5 minutes from done, add the zucchini and green beans, if using. Stir, and return to the boil for 4 minutes. One minute from orzo’s final cooking time (test one; orzo should be al dente), add corn, return just to the boil, then drain orzo and vegetables into a colander.

Return hot pasta and cooked vegetables to the stockpot, and toss with all the dressing, plus the chickpeas, while still warm. Let sit 10 minutes, to cool slightly. While cooling, sliver basil: Stack a dozen leaves, then roll them and slice them crosswise with a sharp chef’s knife, repeating until done. When pasta is no longer steaming, toss gently with the red pepper, scallions, basil and ⅔ feta. Top with remaining feta, and eat immediately, or leave out up to 4 hours. Salad is best served at room temperature. Leftovers are marvelous the next day.

Worthington Farmers Market: June 21st

“The soil is the great connector of lives, the source and destination of all. It is the healer and restorer and resurrector, by which disease passes into health, age into youth, death into life. Without proper care for it we can have no community, because without proper care for it we can have no life.” 

― Wendell Berry, The Unsettling of America: Culture and Agriculture


Have You Heard About the Honeybees?

The effect that honeybees have on our environment is astounding. Honeybees have been an environmental highlight in the recent years for the devastation of our honeybee colonies. From pesticide use to devastating winters, the number of honeybee colonies have been greatly reduced. Honeybees not only provide us with honey and beeswax, but act as key contributors to pollinating plants.



There are steps we can take to help save our pollinators!



Interested in learning more about honeybees? Read the article from National Geographic, "The Plight of the Honeybee".
