Week #22 — Note from the Farmer

Dear CSA Member

Our season is quickly drawing to a close. There will be two more deliveries after this week. November 18 will be the last delivery. The mornings are really cold and wet and you can feel winter getting ready to move in.  

New this week is Celeriac.  A knobby looking vegetable, Celeriac is wonderful added to any soup or stew.  It will add a subtle flavor of celery. There is also a recipe for Celeriac Slaw on the farm website, Recipe link.  Peel the rough skin before use.

Brussels Sprouts on the stalk will also be in your share. Our Brussels Sprouts are never very large but they are delicious. Cut the sprout from the stalk. Clean, rinse and steam. You will see that the stalk is really tough, almost like a tree branch.

The last of the fall Lettuce. We had a frost the other night but the lettuce seemed to shrug it off.  

If you would like to order Maple, Coffee or Chocolate from the online CSA Marketplace for gifts or to stock up for the winter, please order early. Last year a member ordered a Maple Syrup pint jugs and attached a recipe for Pancakes as a gift for her children’s teachers. Another ordered coffee and paired it with a mug as gifts for friends that they worked with. I thought they were such a nice ideas.  

Enjoy the Harvest.
Deborah for everyone at Stoneledge Farm
