High winds, over 1and 1/2" of rain in two days, two very patchy frosts, Nigella the pig farrowed and we are just waiting for Ina, Fleur and Tilly moved in with Cosmo, a week of harvesting vegetables, clearing the field, prepping for garlic planting and getting the greenhouse and hoop house ready for winter greens, mixed in with a little bit of puppy training seems like a normal week at the farm!
This weeks vegetable basket:
Potatoes - Three winter potato recipes including pan haggerty!
Swede/Rutabaga/Turnip - Everyone seems to have a different name for this! Sadly the swede's this year are not going to be as large as last! Due to the aphid attack it has caused the roots to be more long and skinny. So you may find over the last weeks of the CSA you may end up with two!
Swede, leek and apple bake
Beans - We love making Ribollita. Most recipes call for canned beans but we always use fresh. For the greens you can use anything from napa cabbage, to kale or even your radish tops.
Celeriac - This warty nobly ugly vegetable is amazing! Has a mild celery taste to it.
Celeriac and potato mash
Spiced celeriac soup
spiced celeriac with lemon
'if Cinderella were a vegetables she would have been a Watermelon radish'! don't forget to use the tops Radish top soup and slow roasted radish.
Cauliflower - cauliflower crust pizza
Spinach or Arugula
Herbs - This week it will be thyme. If you want to dry it just place in a brown paper bag for a few weeks. Once the leaves are dry just run your fingers down the stem to remove all the leaves and store in a jar.
