This Week's Bounty*:

salad greens
sweet potatoes
winter squash

* Saturday and Wednesday shares may differ slightly week-to-week, though we do everything we can to make them equal over the season
first frost
The first freezing temperatures of the late season see us pulling in the last of the peppers and eggplants and continuing to enjoy the thicker-skinned fruits and roots of Fall. Those of you who still would like to put up food for Winter are in luck!  There is a great deal of preservation one can do at this time of year.  (And a lot of it is pretty passive!) Sweet potatoes and squash will continue curing and sweetening in room temperature conditions, and will last this way well into Winter.  Garlic appreciates an atmosphere a bit cooler and darker; a drawer in your kitchen is great.  Broccoli, cauliflower, and all of your hearty greens can be blanched and frozen for later use.  And don't forget that fermentation is a fantastic way to bring extra life, flavor, and health into your food all Winter long.

Keep in mind that our regular CSA distributions will continue until Wednesday, October 26th (Saturday pick-ups end on the 22nd).  We'll take a little over a week hiatus where the farm will harvest the remainder of its abundance for our Grand Finale Distribution on Sunday, November 6th, noon - 4pm. We'll keep you posted with information as that celebratory day draws closer.

Blessings from the farm.
