Yikes! Tornado.

Hello Everybody,

Yikes, it sure felt like the Wizard of Oz

Well, as you folks probably already know -- our farm had a close encounter with a tornado. It nearly flattened our woods. Trees fell into the fields and are blocking our access roads. We have begun the cleanup process and it will take us a long time to get us ship-shape.

We are all ok, buildings ok. Crops probably ok - including corn - was flat now starting to stand up. Tomatoes are another story - we had 1 inch of rain in 15 minutes - very bad for tomatoes. Major tree damage in our woods - trees also fell into the fields and have blocked our access roads. My dad and uncle are very tired because it has been a rough couple of days. Our farm stand is open for business. 

I have posted our tornado pictures on our Facebook page. I don't think you need to be a member to see them. 

Thank you for your concern,
Diane Janowski and the Janowski Family
and Denny, too.

Caraflex Cabbages

I say this every year, our Caraflex cabbages make the BEST coleslaw that you ever ate. Very easy to cut - cuts like butter.

I make my coleslaw with carrots, mayonnaise, brown sugar, white balsamic vinegar, dried dill, Hungarian paprika, and salt and pepper. Also in our farm stand today we regular cabbages, some nice little Gonzalez cabbages, parsley, lettuce, yellow beans, squash, collards and kale, Swiss chard, cucumbers, and pickling cucumbers. Corn is also just beginning so you may find some on your visit.

Thank you very much for your patronage!

It's time for pickles!

We grow "Regal" pickling cucumbers and they have won the blue ribbon two years in a row at the Chemung County Fair.

I have an easy 3-pickle "one jar at a time" recipe here - I make these all the time!

We have them in our farm stand - 100 for $10 so you can make your own.

Also in our farm stand today we have yellow squash, zucchini, regular cucumbers, lettuce, kale & collards. And coming soon - parsley, beets, Swiss chard, broccoli, cabbage, and basil.
