This week is the mid-point of our Fall CSA; which is a bit strange, as it seems we are only now beginning to get into our fall crops. The hot and dry August and September put off our fall crop growth and now in last two weeks things have really taken off. We are unfortunately going to keep waiting a bit for cabbage, carrots, and fennel; but the greens are officially ready and for the first time since late Spring we have a substantial amount of cilantro. With the tomatoes almost done, we are giving you all the makings for a pico di gallo or fresh salsa. We are also excited to give you some potatoes after a long hiatus. This has been one of our worst potato crops, as you might have noticed they have been scarce in the shares. We have been waiting for the fall weather to give you more. Please enjoy the greens, potatoes, and Mexican chiles all together. In our opinion these vegetables make great combinations. Try some spicy home fries, a delicious omelet or frittata, some tasty vegetarian enchiladas, or greens and potato stuffed peppers. There are so many menu ideas when pairing these crops together. The lemondrop and serrano chiles freeze very well, in case you do not want to use them all in the next few weeks. The frisee is back and looking luscious. One of our favorite ways to use this is in a big salad with potato, hard boiled or poached egg, bacon, red onion, maybe a little tomato or olives and some anchovy in the dressing. Delicious. Enjoy the share……Autumn and Brian
