Last days of fall

Here we are in the early part of November and a couple of good frosts and 1 freeze under our belt and we still have some beds of greens that keep hanging on. That I love. Of course my son Lucca is pretty sick of seeing greens every night for dinner. I have been freezing bags of turnips, mustard greens and spinach for the past few days. This is so simple to do and come the dark, cold days of winter it is nice to pull out a bag of greens from the garden from the freezer. You just need to wash your fresh greens and put them into boiling water for a couple of minutes or until they turn bright green…this may in some case take less then 2 minutes.  Once they have turned color remove them from the boiling water and put them into a bowl of ice water to stop them from cooking. Once they have cooled squeeze the water out of them and place them into a plastic freezer bag.  That’s it! So easy and you will be happy you took a few minutes of your day to do this while the greens are in season and readily available.

CSA shareholders both fall and summer you are more then welcome to come and cut all the greens you want.
