This Week’s Harvest
Romanesco OR Cauliflower OR broccoli
Northern Spy- old fashioned variety. small, red and green streaks, tart. excellent eating and baking
Golden Delicious- golden and delicious!
Fuji- sweet, more solid red and green than the Northern Spy
Greens and Potato Gratin (make with turnip greens and broccoli raab or any other greens you may still have!)
Turnip and Potato Soup (you can use arugula, napa cabbage, or any other green in place of kale)
Spring Rolls with Napa Cabbage Wrapper (shredded daikon and kohlrabi make good fillings. These would be great with a peanut dipping sauce!
We had CSA members out to the farm this weekend who got to see our fall production fields in action. They also saw lots of empty fields–but those where once filled with vegetables. There are several stages of field management that go into each planting. Here is a step by step look at our third and final summer squash/melon/cucumber field.
This field’s job is not done yet! Sometime between now and early November we’ll plant the first crop of 2018- garlic! We’ll need to reshape the beds, crack 500 lbs of garlic into individual cloves, and plant! This is one of the final major jobs of the season and it’s hard to believe planting day is right around the corner.
