Meet Emily

Emily assists with the gardening at Deep Acres Farm

Emily helped us apply a generous layer of organic compost to the back perennial gardens we planted last summer.  We used cocoa bean mulch on the front beds, but not in the back where our dogs run free because cocoa shells can be toxic to dogs.

Summer Camp

On June 20-22 Escape Brooklyn is hosting their first ever event in the Hudson Valley at Malouf’s Mountain. They'll be camping, swimming, hiking, and boozing it up in the mountains for two days.   Sounds like our kind of vacay. Last call for SUMMER CAMP!

Purslane aka Pigweed
Mix in a salad with arugula, kale, lemon juice and Garlic Expressions dressing.  Nothing else could be so fresh and healthy for you.  Purslane contains more omega-3 fatty acids (alpha-linolenic acid in particular) than any other leafy vegetable plant.

Although purslane is considered a weed in the United States, it may be eaten as a leaf vegetable. It has a slightly sour and salty taste and is eaten throughout much of Europe, the middle east, Asia, and Mexico.
