Dear CSA member:
We had a wonderful Farm Festival on Saturday, and it was great to meet so many CSA members and families. The day was perfect in every way. Delicious food, sunny, dry weather, potatoes aplenty for members to pick up and take home. The flowers even kept their bright colors for one last week for members to pick a bouquet to take home. Thank you to everyone who made the trip to the farm.
First of the winter squash this week. The variety is butternut, and they are a delicious small variety. Butternut winter squash and a drizzle of maple syrup added during baking are the perfect pairing. To bake winter squash, cut the squash in half and scoop out the seeds. The seed cavity makes a perfect hollow for the syrup. Bake until tender and enjoy. You can order locally produced 100% maple syrup from the online CSA Marketplace if you are interested, and the order will be delivered with your CSA shares.
Also this week, beautiful red potatoes. The skins are a rosy pink color, and the potatoes are wonderful cooked with the skins. There will be string beans one more time along with the last of the summer tomatoes and peppers.
Enjoy the harvest.
Deborah for everyone at Stoneledge Farm
