This Week’s Share: Sweet Corn, Potatoes, Tomatoes, Summer/Winter Squash, Cucumber, Bag of Chard Greens, Pepper Medley and “Farmer’s Choice”.
Information, Recipes and some Suggestions:
This week’s share is a continuation of what the bounty has been the last few weeks. We are still harvesting Cucumber’s, Pepper’s, Tomatoes, Potatoes, Chard, Sweet Corn and Squash. Some of you will still get some Melons. Some of you may get the start of the Winter Squash. The pepper’s have really been coming on…..the Italian Sweet’s are very nice. They are somewhat long and plump and with a nice, sweet flavor. Some of the Bell Pepper’s are turning colors and look very Fall festive….oh and are also delicious! I am at a loss for new creative info and recipe’s this week…….please share your ideas, we’d be honored to hear what’s been cookin’ in your kitchen!
The face of the farm is slowly changing. This Tuesday evening Autumn is officially here. Personally my favorite season, and an interesting season for farming as well. Ground is being worked down and amended. Cover crops are soon to be seeded. We are planning several acres to be seeded into crimson clover or pea mix. We are excited to be seeding Walla Walla onions now, and look forward to having them next CSA Season. Our garlic field for this fall is basically ready to plant. We will wait to till once more before October 10th, when we plan to plant it at our Harvest Farm Work Party…….Hope to see you there!
