November 20th, 2014

We would like to thank all our share holders. You made our CSA run smoothly by picking up on time, being considerate of others, sharing your recipes and just being so kind.
Can you believe our fall share has come to an end this week? This weeks share will include Thanksgiving produce. Two pie pumpkins for pies! We don’t think one is enough. One of our garlic braids will be included. Keep these hung in your kitchen and cut off garlic as needed from the bottom up. Garlic will remain firm for several months, lasting you through winter unless your like me and add garlic to everything. Fresh tender leeks! Saute, grill or make delicious leek soup. Leeks are great in stuffing as well. A mix of red and gold Irish potatoes. A mix of hardy herbs that will be good in stuffing, potatoes or whatever you wish. More Pecans this week. Sounds like pecan pie!! This week we picking many greens for your share. Lettuce, kale, chard and other mixes if our weather holds. Want to try something new? We are including a few Quince fruit. Be creative! While it is not eatable raw, it’s great in chutneys, relishes and preserves. It isn’t a popular fruit, but it an old time Thanksgiving tradition.  Pecans and persimmons as well.

Follow up for our Summer CSA Shares which are now open to reserve….

Our family wishes you and yours a very Happy Thanksgiving and a Merry Christmas!
