The final CSA share of the year is here. It is one of those moments you ponder how time just flies right by. Although, I think eating fresh vegetables directly from the farm helps to keep yourself very connected to time and more so the seasons. We are very thankful that you shared the journey from the strawberries in May to the Pumpkins in October with us! This week we’ll be harvesting our nemesis crop, Brussels Sprouts! One of my favorites to eat and one of the most challenging to grow. We have a decent crop of them this year even though they nearly all were eaten by groundhogs a week after they were planted. Miraculously what little was left of the plants sprung forward new growth, the groundhogs vanished and voila’ …. we have brussels sprouts.
We also have popcorn in the share this week. Make some on the stove top and binge watch Stranger Things on Netflix for Halloween!
Put the pot back over the stove on high heat. Within a few minutes, the popcorn should start popping. Give the pan a good shake every now and then to ensure even heating.
Once the popping slows down to nearly a stop, remove the pan from the heat and let it sit for 1 more minute to give any stubborn kernels a chance to pop. Pour into a large serving bowl.
Top with butter and salt if desired.
The CSA share will be:
Carnival Acorn Squash
Red Beets or Golden Beets
Choice of Greens
and a choice/substitute table
Thank You for being a part of our farm and giving us the opportunity to grow food for you and your family. We will plan to have an open market on the Sunday before Thanksgiving here at the farm and soon we will have sign up details posted for the 2023 CSA. We hope you’ll join us once again!
