I wanted to first remind members this week that there are four weeks left in the season. The last delivery will be made on October 16th which will be the 25th week of the season. In the meantime, members can expect to see in next weeks share lettuce and possibly baby beets and beet greens. Tomatoes will most likely be with us for the remainder of the season, as well as eggplant and peppers.
Last week full share members received a bag of spicy lettuce mix, that was not listed in their product table. The bag was a combination of arugula, mustard greens and mitzuna (in case anyone was confused). This week members have received turnips and turnip greens. I hope members are able to utilize both the sweet and zesty turnip as well as its crisp leaves. Two varieties of turnips were grown, the Hakurie turnip which is the common white turnip and the scarlet turnip, a specialty red variety. Members have received one or the other.
A mixed bag of winter squash went out this week, members have either received spaghetti, red kuri, butternut, acorn or sweet dumpling varieties. I recommend using your Roma tomatoes as a sauce, since their thick and fleshy substance cooks up well.
A good number of members have written through out the season with feedback on specific crops or on their feelings about the season in general. I would love to hear more, both from those I have already heard from as well as those I have not. Thank you to all who responded to my Green Zebra inquiry last week, it seems as though I have received a thumbs up which is what I was expecting. It is a good tomato. Thanks everybody, and have a good week.
