DID YOU KNOW...
WE GROW OKRA
Okra is fast gaining a reputation as a so-called 'superfood' for people with or at risk ... a positive effect on blood sugar control, among many other health benefits.
Okra is also called “ladies’ fingers,” it’s an annual vegetable that belongs to the same plant family as hibiscus and hollyhock.
Okra is good for adding bounce your hair. Boil horizontally sliced okra till the brew become slimy from the gooeyness and seeds inside. Cool, add a few droops of lemon and use this as the last rinse and see your hair spring back to youthfulness and jump.
Okra, sliced, and placed in soup or stew it's a "natural" thickening agent, as well as adding its unique appearance and texture to any soup or stew.
CLOSED FOR THE SEASON!
WE MAY HAVE ADDITIONAL GREEN BEANS COMING THRU MID OCTOBER.

Why Orange Tomatoes Have More Health Benefits than Red Tomatoes
In a study published in the Journal of Agricultural and Food Chemistry, researchers at Ohio State University found that orange “Tangerine” tomatoes contain lycopene that is more easily absorbed into the body than red tomatoes.
Why should we care?
Lycopene is a powerful nutritional antioxidant that reduces the amount of damage done to body cells by oxygen that could lead to cancers and heart disease.
Although red tomatoes have lycopene in higher concentrations, individuals in the study that were given spaghetti meals made with orange tomatoes absorbed up to two and a half times more lycopene into their bodies than those who had the red tomato pasta sauce.
