Greetings from a wet and windy farm. We’ve been hard at it today, cutting, pulling, picking, bunching, washing, weighing, packing, and labeling all that produce. It’s a great first winter CSA harvest, with lots of roots, greens, and peppers. Remember that the on farm pickup is shorter in the winter, only from 4-5p.m., so be sure to get here early enough, or feel free to call us and we’ll set one aside for you in the cooler with your name on it.
In today’s harvest:
Butternut Squash; grown by the Amish at Rich Hill, MO, probably sprayed and fertilized with synthetics.
Red Bell Peppers
Purple top turnips
Whole and Halves Only:
Sweet Potatoes; grown in Jonesboro AR, probably sprayed and fertilized with synthetics.
Chestnuts (grown by a farmer in Elkland, delicious roasted or boiled, keep in the fridge, and use within a week or freeze)
Whole Shares Only:
Salad Mix, a spicy asian mix.
Daikon or Japanese Turnips. Both excellent fresh in a salad or cooked; be careful not to overcook them, as they will get mushy.
Quarter Shares only; Bok Choi.
Enjoy the veggies, and we’ll see you again on the 19th.
