05 Oct CSA Share: Week 19
Today was a beautiful fall day…we’ve all almost forgotten how wonderful a sunny day feels! Root vegetables abound in the share this week- purple-top turnips, radishes, potatoes, fennel, garlic, and onions. Have a few cabbages in your fridge? There was a wonderful recipe in the latest issue of Martha Stewart Living for mini batches of saurkraut or just google a quick kraut recipe. It’s really simple and so delicious to make your own sauerkraut.
Those brave enough to venture into the muddy flower patch these past few weeks were greeted by an array of gorgeous dahlias, their vibrant colors a cheerful respite from the rain. In the Discovery Garden, lemon balm is flourishing, and as we have learned in our herbal classes here at the farm with herbalist Susan Hess of Farm at Coventry, lemon balm is a mild flavorful remedy for children’s colds, stomachaches and headaches.
