Today’s share is full of fall greens and roots, just right for soups and oven roasted veggies. Sounds pretty good on a day like today, with the wind blowing and the temperatures dropping.
Napa Cabbage; we love this in slaw, soup, kimchi, salads, or anything you want to add a crunch to.
Carrots, Scarlet Nantes; the first of the fall carrots, with the sweetness that comes with cooler temperatures. For an adventure, try adding the chopped greens to soups. They give a taste of carrots and parsley to the broth.
Acorn Squash conventionally raised by Amish growers in Rich Hill, MO
Half shares only;
Purple top turnips. Great mashed with potatoes, or try them au gratin.
Whole Shares only:
Broccoli conventionally raised, but unsprayed, from Fassnight Creek Farm
Boc choi; great in a stir-fry.
Eggplant or bell peppers
Leaf lettuce mix.
Also, for those who are picking up on the farm, we will be roasting Green Chiles as an option to add to your share.
Remember, this Saturday is the fall farm potluck, starting at 5p.m. The weather is looking fantastic, just cool enough to enjoy the fire and some hot cider. We’ll start with a farm tour at 5, and then start the potluck at 5:45 or 6. Bring a favorite fall dish, enough to share, along with the beverage of your choice. We’ll have hayrides for young and old.
Also, next week is the final summer CSA share, so if you are going to continue your veggie supply into fall and winter, then be sure to get signed up for Winter CSA sometime this week.
