|Happy greens after last nights heavy frost!|
This November we have been blessed with amazing weather. Even with the very heavy -8 frost we woke to this Monday morning! We are delighted to have been able to put so many more fresh greens into the Fall CSA box this year compared to last.
Renewal letters and registration forms for 2016 have now been sent out for next years main season CSA. Bulk boxes will be available as of next week. Please remember there is no weekly, bi weekly or monthly commitment to these, you can order them as needed.
A huge Thank You from Michael and I to all our CSA members for an amazing season and for allowing us to be the farmers who have nourished you and your families this year.
This weeks basket:
Potatoes - This soup is great as you can use any of your root vegetables! Putting down roots soup.
Cream of potato and turnip soup
Slow cooked oxtails with carrots and potatoes
Kalettes - Yes they are back by demand! I think we had better keep these on the growing list for next year! Remember you can freeze the kalette buds and leaves. We have also found them great for teething puppies as they love the stalks!
Parsnips - Parsnip and carrot cake
Turnips - It will depend on how the weather goes this week! It will either be Hakurei (the white ones) or golden turnips.
Braising greens - One of our CSA members said steaming the braising greens made them very sweet and tender.
Asian greens - This will all depend on the weather and how they all hold in the hoop house to which varieties head out into the boxes. All the Asian greens can be eaten raw, steamed, stir fried or added into a potato hash or a frittata.
