PiC of the WEEK
What's happening at the farm
what's new this week
Time For Squash!
Acorn Squash: We distribute squash in the reverse order in which they keep (in other words, the squashes that don't store as well, we will distribute first). This week we've got acorn for you and then comes delicata, pie pumpkin, buttercup, red kabocha, carnival, and finally, butternut into the winter. We should have some type of squash through Thanksgiving.
Cutting Lettuce: A mix of red & green leaf lettuces cut when they are "adolescent" and sweet and delicious. We don't spin them dry, so if you want them to last more than a few days, put them through your salad spinner before storing in the fridge. We've got a big crop for a few weeks ahead
Celery: Our celery is smaller, more flavorful, and a bit tougher than what you will find in the store. We grow it because it's salty, crunchy, and flavorful. This is not for juicing, but it makes your soups delicious. To use, cut off tops (use later for soup stock) and pull off stalks. It will store well in a plastic bag in the refrigerator. We have a good crop this year.
Chinese Cabbage: The fall crop has come in BIG! These are crunchy, mild, and great for fresh eating or pickling (kim-chi!!!). Don't be afraid - cut it in half, use it a little at a time. Delicious.
