Main Season 2018 CSA – Week # 25 – Distribution for 11/13/18

CSA 2018 – WEEK #25 – FINAL WEEK

November 12, 2018

This is the final week #25 of our CSA program!  We hope you’ve enjoyed this season’s harvests as much as we’ve enjoyed growing for you.  You’ll be hearing from us next week with our traditional end-of-season letter from your farmer.  This week’s share brings you the cauliflower we’ve been patiently waiting for, along with baby greens (arugula, specifically) that Farmer Matt planted to make up for the corn back in August.  And some single items, like leeks and sweet potatoes, which we harvested from the fields so that nothing goes to waste!

THIS WEEK IN THE SHARES…

Cauliflower – The beloved fall veg has made it into this last box of the season!  It was growing so slowly we really weren’t sure.  Happy to share it with all of you this week!
Storage: In airtight storage in the refrigerator. Uses: Raw/Cooked When to use: Within 5 days.

Radicchio – I love the bitter flavor in salads, but if you don’t, that flavor disappears when cooked.
Storage: In airtight storage in the refrigerator. Uses: Raw/Cooked When to use: Within 5 days.

Yellow Potatoes – A nice flavorful, waxy variety.
Storage: In a cool (NOT cold), dark spot. Uses: Cooked When to use: Within 5 days.

Carrots – Our sweet fall carrots are finally big enough to harvest!  Their seeding was delayed back in August due to the rain, so we’ve had to be patient!
Storage: In airtight storage in the refrigerator. Uses: Raw/Cooked When to use: Within 5 days.

Arugula – Tender, baby leaves.  Farmer Matt seeded this planting specifically for those members who needed a replacement for wormy corn back in August.
Storage: In airtight storage in the refrigerator.  Uses: Raw When to use: Within 5 days.

Super Baby Red Kale – The leaves are so small and tender that the bags are small…enough for a small salad or to mix in with other greens.
Storage: In airtight storage in the refrigerator.  Uses: Raw When to use: Within 5 days.

Celery Root/Celeriac – This root needs to be peeled, but it has the wonderful, rich flavor of celery in a large bulb.  Great for mashing along with potatoes (the white ones from last week would be perfect!) or added to soups or stews or roasted in chunks.
Storage: In airtight storage in the refrigerator.  Uses: Cooked When to use: Within 10 days.

Sweet Potato – We cleaned out the fields and had enough for one for each member in this last box of the season!
Storage: In a cool, not cold, spot.  Uses: Cooked When to use: Within 5 days.

Leek – We cleaned out the fields and had enough for one for each member in this last box of the season!
Storage: In airtight storage in the refrigerator.  Uses: Cooked When to use: Within 5 days.
