Welcome to our Fall share! We have had a wonderful week on the farm cleaning up summer crops (tomatoes & watermelons) and focusing on transplanting and direct seeding our winter crops so we can keep growing food for you all. At this point all the planting we have left is our overwintered crops such as spinach, carrots, cabbage, chicories, and broccoli and some late fall cut greens, like arugula and salad mix. Even with the planting winding down, there is much to do managing all the crops that are growing, keeping them healthy, watered, and weed free. With such a rainy summer we never setup most of our irrigation so for the past few weeks we have had to throw stuff together in order to keep the small starts happy. But the weather this past week has been close to perfect, so we cannot complain and it even looks like we might get rain this weekend, so yippee.
For this weeks’s share we are excited to bring you a lot of new crops. The salad turnips are delicious and beautiful eaten raw or cooked plus don’t forget about the greens, as they are so sweet and tender. We are super excited to bring cilantro, all season we have had such disappointing cilantro crops but now it looks fabulous and tastes wonderful, especially with the squash and a little jalapeno. Or think about a tasty frittata made with squash, sweet pepper, and kale or turnip greens served alongside a green salad with quick pickled turnips. Check out the recipes below and enjoy the share….Brian and Autumn
