February really can be a brutal month. We always see some nasty weather during the month. Hoping March will bring better weather. We are in limbo as far as planting, it's too early to plant spring crops and hopefully the cool season crops are already in the ground. We get a lot of office work done during February because we don't want to be outside. I have lots of time to do office work these days since I can't do much else.

Rick and I will celebrate our 35th wedding anniversary on the 25th of February. Seems like just yesterday that we got married. It's been a crazy 35 years but I wouldn't trade it for anything. Speaking of anniversaries, Legare Farms will celebrate our 300th anniversary next year. We're working on ideas for events to celebrate. We hope to have lots of events throughout the year.
The Rent A Chick reservations are going great. The first weekend of March 15th and 16th has sold out. We still have a good a few pairs left for Easter weekend March 29th and 30th so sign up now.
Our new texting service is working out great. We have added everyone that has purchased through the website and they have gotten a few texts. These text have generated some sales which is great. If you would like to be added to the list, please email me your cell number or text me 843-514-1218. We are sending text about specials and events, also reminders about stops for the Rolling Market.

Recipe of the Month
¼ cup extra-virgin olive oil
Call or email if you have any questions or need more info on any of our programs.
3 cloves garlic, peeled and sliced
1 large bunch kale, stemmed, with leaves coarsely chopped
½ cup vegetable stock, white wine or water
Kosher salt, freshly ground black pepper and red-pepper flakes to taste
2 tablespoons red-wine vinegar
Heat olive oil in a large sauté pan set over medium-high heat until it simmers. Add garlic, and cook until soft.
Add kale to the pan, turn the heat to high and add the stock. Use a spoon to toss the greens in the oil and stock, then cover and cook for approximately 5 to 7 minutes, until it is soft and wilted, but still quite green. Remove cover and continue to cook, stirring occasionally until all the liquid has evaporated, another 1 to 2 minutes. Season to taste with salt and peppers, add vinegar and toss to combine.
