Welcome to Week 3 of the Late Season. Hopefully by today you have all gotten over your sugar hangovers from Halloween, if you indulged. What beautiful weather to go trick or treating in though…..so classic with the leaves in abundance underfoot, and the almost full moon above. I’m sure kids of all ages were inspired! Our crew gathered over the weekend to celebrate together in costume….I’ll share a few pics below for you! We shared good food, good fun and good music as the farm band played on…..
This week we’ll be putting a Festival Squash and a Butternut Squash in your boxes! I am
also including a picture of a Red Kuri Squash, which will be in one of the last two shares in the upcoming weeks. Squash is such a wonderful all around veggie. You can use it as a side dish, or add it to soups and stew, muffins, pancakes, or desserts. It can also stand alone as a main dish, with some rice and a nice salad to compliment. Chock full of nutritions and many vitamins and minerals, it is a major supplement through the winter.
You will also receive either a Savoy Cabbage or a stalk of Brussels Sprouts…I’ve given recipes for both! We’ll make sure to send the same veggies to the opposite sites in the next couple of weeks.
We were fortunate to be able to get in another harvest of our Burdock root before this next round of rains arrived this week. Burdock orders will keep our crew busy through out the winter!
We hope you all have a wonderful week ahead….we’ll all be dancing around the raindrops for a while, but we’ve been so fortunate to have had such a lovely couple of weeks of sunshine, we can’t complain!
Be well and enjoy your veggies this week!
Linda and all of your Winter Green Farmers
