If you're anything like me the holidays can be downright decadent. A wonderful five or so weeks of parties, delicious meals, gatherings, travel, all the wine and all the cheese. A great time was had by all, but January is the perfect time to reevalute what's important and make healthy choices to keep the winter doldrums at bay. The wallet and belt are inevitably tight this time of year, but follow our guide below and you will be back on track in no time!

Lower rates of depression
Lower levels of distress
Greater resistance to the common cold
Better psychological and physical well-being
Better cardiovascular health 
Better coping skills during hardships and times of stress

Many of the varieties we carry can be started today-YES, TODAY, from seed! Read some tips and tricks from Hilary Armour, our GC Manager, on how to start your own "micro" micro green farm!

 

Growing greens indoor requires a warm windowsill and not much patience.  All seeds have a have growth timeline call Days To Maturity. This is listed in all seed catalogs, and tells you when to expect to begin your harvest of fully mature vegetables and fruits.  When harvesting for micro and baby greens, that timeline is greatly reduced. Many greens can be harvested in as little as 8 days after planting. Baby greens somewhere around the 20 day mark and braising greens at 52 days.  You can use a small plastic windowsill greenhouse, which when covered keeps humidity high and helps with sprouting.   Also, the plastic trays that you see bedding plants in are a great choice. Cover them with plastic wrap and achieve the same greenhouse effect.  You can also build an outdoor cold frame on a budget. Old double paned windows are fantastic for growing in winter.  When placed against the side of a shed or house facing south,  they creates a warm enough environment for these cold season crops to germinate. 

                                         

Follow this link for how to build your own cold frame 

 

Crops suitable for this are: Lettuces, Spinach, Kale, Radish, Tatsoi, and Komatsuna.  Also some vegetables that work well: Broccoli, Cauliflower, Cabbage, Beans (for bean sprouts).

Join us on Saturday, February 16th at 11 am in the Hayloft for a lesson in JIN SHIN JYUTSU with Sheri Perelman.

Jin Shin Jyutsu is the Art of releasing tensions which are the causes for various symptoms in the body. Our bodies contain several energy pathways that feed life into all of our cells. When one or more of these paths become blocked, this damming effect may lead to discomfort or even pain. This blockage or stagnation will not only disrupt the local area but will continue and eventually disharmonize the complete path or paths of the energy flow. Through Jin Shin Jyutsu our awareness is awakened to the simple fact that we are endowed with the ability to harmonize and balance ourselves (in rhythm with the universe) physically, mentally and spiritually

A PASSION FOR GREAT CHOCOLATE

"We’re often asked “why single origin?” and the answer is simple – much like coffee, different cacao beans have different flavors.  By using beans sourced from only one farm or region we’re able to highlight the distinct flavor characteristics of that particular bean. 

 

All of our bars are made here at our 225 year old farm in Sudbury, Massachusetts.   We start with cacao beans and sugar, and perform every step of the chocolate making process in-house, including carefully hand wrapping each bar.

 

We’re very proud of our chocolate and we hope you enjoy eating it as much as we do making it.  Please check back frequently as we’ll be adding exciting new origins and flavors on a regular basis!"

-Tom & Monica
