Fall is in the air and fall crops are beginning to show up in our CSA Shareholder’s baskets this week. We are seeing lots of fall crops with lovely new growth in the field and happy farmers we are:) This weekend will be our Fall CSA’s 3rd pickup and you will be seeing some of that fall love in your basket this Saturday, Starting off with sweet potatoes. Love…love sweet potatoes. There are thousand of recipes on-line for sweet potatoes…my favorite is baked with butter and a little cinnamon and honey…yum!
A few greens and leafy vegetables that aren’t green will show up in your baskets this week. Red Mustard Greens being one. I love the dark red color of these greens and they are delicious. I will post a recipe for these on our Facebook page for y’all but you can cook them like you would any mustard greens. Molokhiya will be back in your baskets this week this is that middle eastern spinach. If you haven’t tried the recipes we posted a few weeks back on Facebook…this is your chance… We also have another summery spinach like green your will get in your basket this week call Red Malabar spinach. This is a mild tasting green that can be eaten fresh in salads or steamed. However you prefer to eat your spinach. A little trip around the world with summer spinaches on the farm this week.
We have winter squash and few eggplants and loads of peppers this week for your pickup. Please remember to bring your baskets back to the farm with you….also flowers…flowers…plan on taking some home…they want to go home with you:)
