19 Oct CSA Share: Week 21
This week’s share photo is on the green end of the color spectrum- lots of wonderful nutritious and delicious greens like spinach, arugula, head lettuce and cabbage, as well as green cauliflower, peppers and leeks. During those wet weeks on the farm, thanks to Farmer Tom’s quick thinking we got busy planting the greenhouses, so that’s why we have that gorgeous bunch of spinach this week. It is especially tender from being coddled indoors. Take advantage of the edible flowers in the Discovery Garden and spice up your salad- we are expecting a frost any day now! On that note, the hot peppers freeze really well on a cookie tray, and can then be stored whole in freezer bags for that mid-winter spicy chili. So even if you have enough now, plan ahead for those cold winter months!
