Week #19 — Note from the Farmer

October 9, 2016

Dear CSA Member

Another dry week as we continue on into the fall season. We have been working hard to tend to the garden during this extended drought and, with no rain in the forecast it has been challenging. New this week are turnips. The turnip greens are beautiful and make for a great side dish. Turnip greens are very similar to collards and can be prepared the same way. Their slightly bitter flavor is delicious!
