As summer fades into fall we are still enjoying some summer crops like sweet corn, watermelon, beans, summer squash, tomatoes, peppers, cantaloupe and cabbage. Herbs this week include dill, parsley and basil. For greens lovers we have curly and young kale available, chard, sorrel, watercress, bibb lettuce and microgreens. Storage crops include onions and garlic.
For our Biweekly members, this is week ”B.”

Growers are sowing fall crops now that will mature in the next months: turnips, radishes, beets, carrots, lettuces and more!
Early fall is the time to start preserving food (especially with the slight dips in temperature we have been enjoying—the kitchen isn’t so unbearable for water bathing canned goods!)
I’ve been making small batches of pickled red onions using this recipe.
Sauerkraut is another easy food to preserve. You can keep jars in the fridge and skip the cooking process for the crunchy variety or water bath batches to keep all year. Here’s a small batch recipe.
Love the zing of sorrel? Try it pickled or try it in omelettes finely diced and wilted.
Swiss chard also makes a delicious and nutritious addition to omelettes (Hint: this also satisfies a Bingo square!)
