Wow I really dropped the ball last week! I thought I wrote up the blog and posted it with a cute little picture of something springtime looking. (But apparently I did it only in my head and forgot to actually push publish.) Kind of like when you read a text think of a reply but forget to actually reply and wonder why they never text you back. Yeah……
Anyways I didn’t forget this time and we have a very full fun basket for you this week it’s got;
Fennel (you can use the stalks and leaves roasted with the carrots. It’s really good)
Well we started off the week with a wonderful spring day. Then suddenly we hit the brakes and back tracked rather quickly to windy winter, with 2 nights of freezing temperatures. Now we are back to blissful spring weather. Oh southern Utah, you crazy place, make up your mind!
Oh well, at least you know that we are consistent in providing you the best of the garden every week. And this week we have for your cooking pleasure…….
Mixed salad greens
We love when you share your yummy recipes with us and with each other. It’s always fun to try something new.
This is the last share of the season and we want to thank your from the bottom of our baskets for supporting our CSA program this year. As weird of a year as 2020 has been we have loved seeing you come by every week and get your basket and to perhaps try a fruit or veggie you would not have other wise tried before.
There will still be produce available in the cold room ( as long as we can grow stuff) if you want to swing by stills
We hope to see you all next season thanks a million everyone !
I have to say this is the most “Fall “ basket we have done so far! And you have almost the whole food pyramid! Only thing missing is the sugar and fat section, (but that is easily remedied with a homemade apple pie). Make the rest of the basket into a fall stir fry or creamy kombucha soup with a side of salad and diced tomatoes and you have your self a fantastic meal!
Fall is in the air, can you feel it? Maybe I’m just being hopeful after a summer that seemed to last an eternity…. but I’m crossing my fingers that we are headed for cool weather, fire pits and cozy sweaters.
My heavens! what a windstorm/cold front that was! Hopefully your home avoided any damage from fallen trees or ripped off shingles. That wind sure wreaked havoc on the poor garden this week. But luckily we have a lot of root crop/ hardy veggies that were ready and escaped the wicked wind.
On that note we have for you in shares this week…..
We are really getting into the fall spirit over here at the garden. We have a bunch of new starts going in and a lot of beginning fall harvest coming out and going in your basket. I think you will be quite happy with today’s harvest.
