Week #23 — Note from the Farmer

Dear CSA Member,

The season is nearing an end with only one week remaining after this delivery. We wanted to remind you that the last CSA delivery will be Tuesday, November 13th. This week your shares will be full of all that the late season has to offer. You will be receiving garlic, popcorn, carrots sage and more. We just planted our garlic crop for 2019. The seed is the garlic that was grown this year. Each head is split into cloves and the cloves planted. Each clove will become a garlic head next season. The cloves overwinter in the field to sprout in the spring. The cycle continues.


The 2019 CSA season is open for signups. You can order your share for the 2019 CSA season by logging into your member account.

This week you will be getting POPCORN in your share! Along with Daikon radishes. Below are some helpful tips for using your popcorn and Daikon radishes.

Popcorn:

Take the kernels from the cob . Do this by twisting both hands on the cob. The kernels will fall off.
Use 1/2 cup of kernels for a large bowl of popcorn or 1 corn cob
Add 1 tbl. of oil to large pot with lid.
Add popcorn and cover. Do not lift cover until all of the popcorn is popped. If you lift the lid too much, the popcorn will not pop.
Add butter, salt or your favorite flavoring and enjoy!

Pumpkin / Winter Squash Pie: For this dish, you can use either pumpkin or winter squash. It is a great recipe! Click here for the recipe.

Daikon radish: Daikon radishes are a milder tasting radish. They become sweeter when they are baked. One of our favorite ways to eat the daikon is by making crispy daikon fries! Enjoy with a meal, snack or as an appetizer!

Kohlrabi: Kohlrabi is slightly crunchy with a little spice to it. It can be eaten raw, made into a grated slaw, or boiled or baked. Click here for some helpful ways to prepare and eat kohlrabi.

Enjoy!
