Robyn Miller of CBC visited today July 9th, 2013

Robyn Miller of CBC came to the farm today, she was interested in learning more about our 100 Acre Farm and our CSA.

Robyn toured the farm with me and then I was interviewed.  It will be aired at 11:00 pm tonight (July 9th) on CBC Late Night and again on CBC Compass 5-6 pm July 10th.

She also interviewed Fan Zhang one of our customers. She was fascinated that little PEI has so many newcomers and that farmers like me are growing different crops for these new Islanders.

She seemed to enjoy seeing the hens and roosters walking around the farm and enjoying the beauty of the view.  Visitors often remark on the beauty of the view.

Robyn was charmed by the sight of our seven two day old piglets. These are Berkshire hogs, a heritage breed. They are known for the quality of their meat and flavour and their good mothering instincts. Here are some photos of the new additions to the farm.

The new arrivals...


Update: Here is the video, story starts around the 6:20 mark

We made green chile sauce and RJR salsa

We made several batches of salsa and then we had so many green tomatoes we made a few  batches of green tomato chile sauce. We ate the extra salsa still hot yummy.

Improvised soup and stir-fry!

It's really nice to be able to open up my fridge and see loads of fresh vegetables just waiting to be combined into something healthy and filling. Though I didn't have kidney beans or zucchini I decided to make a sort-of minestrone out of the beans, onions, celery, green pepper, potatoes, carrots, parsley, basil, and Swiss chard that all came from the farm.  First I sautéed the celery, onions, carrots, then I added the potatoes and green pepper. Then I added vegetable broth, garlic, seasoning and just kept adding vegetables.  The Swiss chard came in at the very end after it had been rinsed, soaked, and chopped roughly.  Served it with salad- of course cucumber and lettuce from the farm. We didn't have any meat so we had fried eggs for a protein. Maybe that is weird, but we liked it. Now I didn't chronicle my improvised stir fry but I stir-fried carrots, a wack of snow peas, onions, garlic, and strips of steak. I made Rita's classic stir-fry sau
