Worthington Farmers Market: February 21st

"Everything has seasons, and we have to be able to recognize when something's time has passed and be able to move into the next season. Everything that is alive requires pruning as well, which is a great metaphor for endings"

- Henry Cloud

It's Time to Plan on Pruning!

Photo Credit:  Modern Farmer

Despite the bitter cold of winter it's time to start planning on pruning your fruit trees! Annual pruning is a must in order to keep fruit trees attractive and, most importantly, productive. Unfortunately, this task works best during the colder, wintery months. Pruning during this time reduces the chance for disease dispersal and the infection of your trees, when bacteria and other disease causing agents are dormant. Deciding on pruning later in the dormant season will minimize cold injury as well. When you prune your fruit trees, you are allowing more sunlight to enter your tree's canopy, you are removing old wood or disease susceptible wood, as well as creating a sturdier tree to bear quality fruit. 

So let's plan on pruning this year! Your trees will thank you by rewarding you with quality fruit! (Keep in mind that there are several other cultural practices that will help maximize the production of fruit. Pruning is very important, but it is not the only cultural practice to utilize!)

Interested in reading more on pruning? Read Modern Farmer's article, "How To Prune Your Fruit Trees"! There are also excellent fact sheets from Ohio State's Ohioline on this subject matter and others as well!

...

This weekend is our monthly Market Sprouts event! Bring your little ones to market and make some crafts with us!

...

We also would like to comment on our winter weather policy for market cancellation! Due to the variability of winter weather, canceling market can be hard to do. Check out our Facebook and Twitter pages, as well as our website, for updates on the status of our market if weather persists! We will be open for regular business hours unless Franklin County is operating under a Level 2 or Level 3 Snow Emergency.

Worthington Farmers Market: January 31st

"If it looks like it did when it grew from the earth, that's your cue that it's a healthier choice."

- Erin Ford, Columbus Metro Healthy Eating Specialist

Healthier Choices, Healthier You!

"At the beginning of the year it's easy to feel like you have to make a drastic overhaul to your diet, but often that just leads to an ice cream craving that won’t quit. Eating healthy is a lifestyle change, one that requires incremental modifications and the addition of more healthy ingredients. Rather than jumping in head first, start with small steps like the following that you can feel good about..."

Worthington Farmers Market: January 24th

"For me, as a farmer and food activist, cooking is the creative process that connects the work of the farmer/gardener/herdsman/fisherman/hunter/forager with the work in all kitchens: transforming the bounties of the land and sea into feasts of honest, nutritious, seasonal, inspired food."

- Thomas Harttung

One for the Cook's...


"Invariably, we hear that there is simply no other way to feed and clothe ten billion people on planet Earth. If you are not an agricultural expert, or a trained environmental economist, you will quickly find yourself in unknown territory, with people throwing facts and figures and thick reports at you. The system that exists has an aura of inevitability. Those who challenge the orthodoxy are deemed naïve, at best—or else reckless, or even dangerous and subversive."

"We challengers need ammunition: cookbooks of facts and arguments to commandeer in discussions about the future of food. Here’s an attempt at one..."

There's Nothing Better than a Sweet Potato 

Photo Credit:  Health Avenue

This week's newsletter is all about sweet potatoes! How to grow them, cook them, and store them! Read more about the sweet potato from one of our favorite blogs, DIY Natural!

But for now, how about some sweet potato fun facts?

  • A common misconception concerning the sweet potato is that a sweet potato is not a yam and a yam is not a sweet potato!
  • The shoots, stems, and leaves of a sweet potato plant can be eaten like spinach, either steamed or eaten raw!
  • The sweet potato originated in Central America where it was first cultivated over 5,000 years ago!
  • Animals love their sweet potatoes too!
  • Sweet potatoes are incredible nutrient dense and contain vitamins, minerals, and antioxidants!
  • And, sweet potatoes do not contain many calories. In fact, pound for pound, there are less calories in a sweet potato than a typical "Irish" potato! Do not let the name fool you!
*All facts were paraphrased from the DIY Natural blog!

This week is our monthly Market Sprouts event! Bring your sweet little ones to market and make a craft with us!
