See our generally important notes below for our winter market schedule.
I am happiest outside. I may sometimes forget this but my body remembers. The moment I step outside, I take a deep breathe and remember.
Our friend the Northern Harrier is back to its winter hunting grounds, which overlaps with our farm. The land is so much to so many. I'm grateful to bear witness.
In this email:
- Winter market schedule:
- December! We will be at all three of our markets the 10th and the 17th. We will then take our winter break.
- We will return to Eastern Market and Royal Oak weekly January 21st. We will continue coming to market as long as we can grow enough that it makes sense. We will attend Ann Arbor weather permitting.
- We plan on growing lots of microgreens and shoots and will bring them along with our storage crops (radishes, potatoes, onions, cabbage and more!). Tyler and I have big plans for an early spring season. We will have to see what nature decides.
- Generally important notes

Crisp, fresh, and bursting with loads of unexpected flavor, this Garlic Bok Choy Recipe is guaranteed to be your new favorite side dish.
- 1 tablespoon vegetable oil
- 5 cloves garlic - minced
- 2 large shallots - minced (I would substitute some small, Lake Divide onions- Helen)
- 2 pounds baby bok choy - halved or quartered
- 2 tablespoon soy sauce
- 1 teaspoon sesame oil
- 1 teaspoon crushed red pepper - optional
- Add the oil to a large wok or skillet over medium-high heat. Swirl to coat the entire surface of the pan. Add the garlic and shallots, stirring continuously for 1-2 minutes, or until fragrant.
- Add the bok choy, soy sauce, and sesame oil. Toss to coat and cover. Cook for 1-2 minutes, uncover and toss, and then cover and continue to cook until bok choy is cooked to desired doneness (approximately 3-5 minutes more).
- Sprinkle with crushed red pepper and serve immediately. Enjoy!
