Apples and Pears! I was totally amazed by how many of you responded to our offer of the extra fruit we had from Mt. Hood Organics….I did run out of all the apples I had on hand but we will have more the last two weeks of the Late Season. If you would like some, just let us know. I do still have a some Pears available…I can send some next week to your delivery location if you like.
WHAT’S IN YOUR SHARE THIS WEEK:
- Pac Choi

Wild Rice & Lentil Stuffed Delicate Squash
Harvest Moon Kale Caesar Salad w/ Delicate & Creamy Maple Mustard Dressing

What a spectacular week this has been….almost makes us forget all about the earlier rain when the sun is so bright and the colors so vivid. As I sit here at my computer, the view through my window is of deep green evergreens, interspersed with yellow and reds, and falling leaves at every breath of wind. I do wish I was outside fully immersed in this glorious Fall weather, but this is certainly second best.
I’m a bit late writing the Blog to you all today….there seems to be endless last minute details for the first Late Season delivery today…it’s been that kind of week for sure! Can’t say I’m sorry it’s Friday and we have a couple of days ahead to be languid, or outside playing in the leaves. Many of us will be preparing Halloween costumes and celebrating with friends and family. Or attending the Ducks game at home in Eugene. So much to do and be grateful for in our community!
It turned out to be a lovely day for the farm Harvest Celebration! Thank you so much to all of you who came on out…the food was amazing, as it is every year, and I so enjoyed sharing the day with our members. The end of the season is bitter sweet, but for me it’s a time to hear how much folks enjoyed the food, and to watch our members be able to
share the farm experience by taking a hayride, and interacting with farmers and fellow members. The pumpkins were great this season too, and many made their way home to be carved into Jack-O-Lanterns for the upcoming festivities….roasted pumpkin
seeds..YUM! We made lots of apple cider on our rented Correll Apple Cider Press, and sent jars home to be enjoyed later on. Elizabeth Lutz, the amazing face artist, joined us and once again created works of art on faces young, and not so young!
Thanks so much to our new crew member this year, Erin Katovich, for taking time out of her weekend to attend and take pictures for us….she did a great job, as you can see!
We hope that you all enjoy this first box of the Late Season, and we look forward to sending more your way in the coming weeks, chock full of delicious veggies…hope you all have a wonderful weekend!
Linda and all of your Winter Green Farmers
