What’s in the Bag — Week 19

Dear CSA Member

This is the 19th CSA week. Hearty vegetables are filling the share. It has been very cold with a killing frost during the evening. The hale and hearty remain. Many of the leafy greens that survive frosts actually taste even better after a cold snap.

Carrots, beets and celeriac are pulled from the ground. Washed, cubed and sprinkled with a little olive oil, the trio make great roasted root vegetables. Cover with a bit of tin foil if you would like to cut down on the roasting time a bit. Remove the foil near the end of the baking.

Garlic again this week. Pulled from the ground in July, hung to cure in the barn and now perfect.

Butternut Winter Squash, probably one of the best tasting Winter Squash varieties. The Butternut will keep if you can not use it right away. Butternut is perfect with a touch of honey or maple from the farm.

If you would like to order Honey, Maple, Coffee from the online Market Place, just log into your account from the farm website home page. Click on Market under the center photo and place the order. Your order will be delivered with the CSA shares. The weeks are slipping by and some sizes are getting in short supply.

The Face Book page was updated late last week and will be updated this Sunday. Take a look.

Enjoy the beautiful fall and the vegetables.
for everyone at Stoneledge Farm
