Details about today's
Loose carrots this week.
Another couple of cucumbers.
Delicata Winter Squash
This is the first of the winter squash this season. Oblong and striped, these squash have a thin and edible skin. They are great stuffed or cut into half inch rounds and roasted.
This variety is called Porcelain and is slightly spicy raw but mellows nicely with cooked.
A nice bag of green beans, likely the last of the season.
A beautiful and tender bunch of green kale.
A yellow onion this week.
These are all sweet peppers--bell and pointed Italian. The red or red/green pointed pepper--Carmen--is one of our favorites. It's a reliable producer and is always one of the sweetest! The gold pointed pepper--Escamillo--is the cousin of Carmen and equally as delicious. There is also a bell pepper. The peppers look great right now, so we expect to have a couple more weeks of these delicious beauties.
A variety called Dakota Pearl that is similar to a Yukon Gold but with whiter flesh. Slightly sweet and great roasted, mashed, cut into fries, and made into a potato salad for your Labor Day picnic.
A bunch of radishes to put atop your salad. If they're too spicy for you, cut in half and roast alongside some potatoes.
Finally, the salad mix is big enough to cut! It did get beat up a little during Monday night's storm, but it managed to recover by Wednesday morning. As a result though, it's freshness won't last long, so eat it within the first few days. While we wash this mix, we suggest that you wash and spin again before using.
