The Winter Chill
Wow, What a week it has been outside and just the perfect reminder of how thankful we are for our hard working, dedicated farmers. The lettuce this week comes to us from Hoover Farms in Live Oak, FL where the winter chill go down to 20 degrees. Bradley and his father covered over 3.5 acres of land with frost/freeze cloth to save their lettuce and greens! We want to give a big shout out to those who are providing our Thanksgiving meal this week. We know they work from sun up to sun down.
What does this mean for our customers? The summer items, like Brown’s Farm peas and summer squash that was still lingering are now done and the winter items like cauliflower, carrots, and broccoli are just around the corner. The freezing weather has slowed the crop’s growth but we should see some of these items next week!
10 Free Thanksgiving Boxes for Families in Need  

Our business is committed to local families and our local farms. We appreciate your patronage and are overwhelmed by the generosity of our customers throughout the year. We know that we are all enjoying this time of year and we’d like to do what we can to help those less fortunate in our community. This year, FPP is delighted to continue with The Veggie Bin’s annual Thanksgiving Box giveaway where we will gift TEN ABSOLUTELY FREE local boxes to friends and families in need. 

We have already ordered the extra produce for this project. No donation is needed. All you need to do is contact us at fp@frontporchpickings.com to make arrangements. We know folks are proud, so we won’t be calling this charity, it’s simply a gift from a friend! We only have ten local boxes to give away, so please note that we will give these away to the first ten FPP customers who email us.

In addition to our 10 free boxes, we have put together a Mini Thanksgiving Box for $18.00. Give your friends and loved ones the gift of “holiday fixin’s”. Our thanksgiving box is packed in a separate box and ready for you to deliver. The box includes approximately 2lbs sweet potatoes, 1lb pole beans, 1 bunch broccoli, 1 head of lettuce, and a handful of tangerines. Add your own flare by topping it off with jam, grits, or other items from our shop. Just add the items to your order and pack it in before delivering. Sorry no substitutions in this box.

FPP Software in PROGRESS – Please read!

We want to thank everyone for their patience during our software upgrades. As you know we have run into a few more problems than we anticipated. We are currently working on making our shopping cart easier and realize we have a bug that reverts the shopping cart to original quantities when adding or deleting products. This is a work in progress. This week, the programmers at DBP have changed the “x” to check marks. This will change the quantity to zero and then delete the item when you hit submit. HOWEVER, we are still running into the issue of items reverting when you add an item. To make your shopping experience easier today, please change quantities and delete items first, hit submit. THEN add items from the shop and hit submit again. We apologize for the inconvenience and hope to have a more permanent solution soon!

FPP Unearthed: Lettuce

We are so excited that the first of this season’s lettuce is finally here! Your lettuce came to us from Hoover Organic Farm  in Live Oaks, FL – less than 150 miles from most of our customers’ homes.

Butterlea

Did you know greens such as lettuce, chard, and beet greens need to stay hydrated to keep crisp? Knowing how to store your lettuce is very important, as the shelf life can be much longer than store bought greens if stored properly. Adding a bit of water to dampen greens and storing them in glass or plastic container will keep your lettuce looking fresher, longer.

A salad spinner is always a worthwhile investment when participating in a CSA of any kind. We have kept lettuce for up to 2 weeks by using a salad spinner. It has double duty in our kitchen — washing greens and storing greens! We know its not usually recommended, but we dampen our lettuce the day of delivery to give it a little “pick me up” and then place the entire head in the spinner. Spin gently and store the entire spinner in the refrigerator. Closing the lid with a small amount of water on the bottom, not touching the greens, is enough to keep the leaves crisp and well hydrated. Do not tear lettuce leaves until you are ready to serve. Easy peezy and saves you from throwing out limp lettuce!

Get crafty in the kitchen this week — think outside the salad box with these lettuce creations:

Nothing Says November like Calabaza Pumpkins!

Your Calabaza Pumpkin came to us from Brown’s Farm  in Orange Heights, Florida – less than 100 miles from most of our customers’ homes.

Calabaza Picture Taken by Brown’s Farm

Calabaza, also known as a West Indian Pumpkin, might be low in calories and fat but is packed with beneficial nutrients. A one cup serving has over 17% of your RDA of Vitamin C and nearly 200% of Vitamin A! Store whole squash in a cool, dark place up to six weeks. Keeping the skin dry is important as moisture will begin to rot your squash. If you’re not going to use your whole squash at once, place cut pieces in a plastic container into the refrigerator and use within one week.

This pumpkin is super tasty! The sweet, succulent flesh has a flavor much like the butternut or acorn squash. In fact, most winter squash or pumpkin recipes can substituted out for Calabaza. The seeds can be toasted and eaten as a snack or a salad topping. While you can eat the skins of many squashes, the “winter squashes” and pumpkin skins are not normally considered edible. You’ll need to remove the seeds and stringy fibers from the middle of the pumpkin before cooking it. This can be tricky. I find it helpful to put an old, clean dishtowel that I don’t mind poking holes in bunched up on the cutting board to keep the squash from rolling and sliding. Carefully stab it through the middle until you hit the board, then tip it up and cut through that side. Repeat on the other side.

Calabaza can be eaten many different ways! Check out these recipes to get your creative side running:

OUR STANDARD BOXES - please note that items may change due to weather or supply issues.

Local Bin (Mini): (Organic Lacinato Kale, Calabaza Pumpkin, Patty Pan Squash, Fall Glow Tangerines, Corn), Cabbage, Eggplant, Mini Cukes

Loving the Cooler Weather

The cooler weather is perfect for the fall produce. As you know, we were in between seasons and it was bit sparse in the fields for the last weeks. We are excited to see green beans and black eyed peas this week! Broccoli, root veggies, leafy greens and lettuce is right around the corner. My favorite, however, is the Zellwood Sweet Corn grown by Long & Scott Farms in Mount Dora, FL. At Long & Scott Farms, they run their business according to the idea “The farmer is the original environmentalist.” They produce quality produce by growing hybrid seed varieties for higher yields (No GMO’s!), practice integrated pest management, intense scouting of crops, and utilize beneficial insects to reduce pest damange. The best part — biting into the sweet corn!

It’s a Spooky Good Time of the Year!

Here at FPP we are getting into the Halloween spirit with a new seasonal Ghost Roast Coffee to keep us warm and fun activities at the farm!
