Good day members,

Don’t worry! There is still one more week of regular-season shares after this week. It’s hard to believe that it is already October (it certainly does not feel like October outside). The unusually warm weather sure makes it nice to work outside in the fields-we were harvesting sage in our t-shirts!

Many thanks to all the folks who came out for the member party, we had a great time! Maybelle could hardly go to sleep last night because she was so excited talking about all the fun she had.  It was a beautiful day with a lot of good food and conversation. We really appreciate your support-you and your dedication to local, organically grown foods make this farm happen. It is a real pleasure getting to engage with members and put some faces to names. We look forward to seeing and meeting more of you as the seasons progress on our new property-any with any luck we can harvest apples at next year’s fall party!

Recipes

Cabbage-If you got cabbage in your box this week, we suggest you try this lovely autumnal dish from Nigel Slater, the king of British comfort food: Gratin of Cabbage, Cheese and Cream. We also can’t wait to try this recipe for soup: Savoy Cabbage and Parmesan Soup with Croutons. It’s fun to start seriously thinking about soups again!

Peppers-We promise, you’ll miss them when you either can’t get them or have to pay through the nose for organic peppers at the co-ops in the winter. So, for now, enjoy them and be thankful with us for no killing frost yet! Here’s a fun recipe to use yours up with: Sausage, Peppers, and Onion sandwiches! Or, how about a little jambalaya? Here’s a pretty simple weeknight recipe. We’ll be having some at our house this week!

Butternut Squash-Everyone’s favorite returns for one last time! Use it in place of any of the recipes on our winter squash page, or try this neat, new-to-us recipe for Squash Hash with Kale and Eggs. You can also make a super-simple and healthy roasted squash dish like this one-serve alongside some roast chicken and sautéed kale for a great fall dinner.
