CSA Members 2003: Newsletter Archive

« previous current newsletter next »
16 October 2003

Dear CSA Members,

This week we are excited to bring you carving pumpkins! We grew a mid-sized variety this year to maximize the pumpkin spirit and minimize the back strain. These are pretty pumpkins and some of the best shapes we have grown. The seeds can be roasted and eaten, too. If you are a carver, separate the seeds, wash them and toss them with a little olive oil and salt. Place on a cookie sheet and bake at 325 until crispy.

The continuing rain marks the truly final finish of our summer crops. You will find tomatoes and basil in this week's delivery, the miraculous October -summer harvest. This will be the last time we give you basil (really!), as the weather has nearly rid us of our obsession to pick it.

Boxes this week include the makings for an excellent winter soup or stew: Rutabaga (a relative of the turnip and very tasty to boot), leeks, and Savoy cabbage. With a vegetable broth, garlic and seasonings to your preference, and meat if you like it, you are well on your way to a tasty fall soup. The sweet dumpling is, well, sweeter than the acorn squash. It can be prepared in the same way or cubed and added to leeks, rutabaga and other vegetables, then tossed with olive oil and seasoned with your favorite spices.

We did tell you that the lettuce count would decrease as the season progressed. At this point in the season, however, salad sounds really good to us, and we included a Brunia lettuce this week.

We hope you continue to enjoy your vegetables, and remember that we have a winter delivery scheduled on Monday, November 24th for those of you who want bulk quantities and holiday menu ideas and ingredients. Please let us know if you would like to participate in this optional delivery. As always, please call or email with any questions.

Yours,
Heidi
