Farmers are moving into their fall work. Getting hay cut and baled, cleaning up beds from summer crops and sowing cover crop, and planting late fall and winter crops. At our farm, we're gearing up for the biggest season for maple sales with fall festivals and our seasonal store (I'll share more about that later for new members).
This is Week A for Biweekly Shares.
If you haven't paid your third quarter invoice yet, you will not have credit added to your account. I resent invoices to those who haven't paid on Thursday evening, so check you email.
This Week's Features
Apples!!!!! from Mickley Farm. We haven't had local, unsprayed apples in several years. Only 20 bags to start with, so grab 'em quick!
Raspberries from Mickley Farm. Only 6 pints listed today, but we may add more on Sunday after they see what their harvest will be.
Zucchini, tomatoes, and beans keep plugging along at Detweiler Farm
Harmony Grove Farm has various greens including arugula, lettuce, pac choi, koji, and more. But most are limited quantities.
I loooove roasted veggies. Especially when they're just a little bit crispy. Yummm. Roasting brings out their natural sweetness, and it's such a simple side dish. But my zucchini is usually soggy when I roast it :( I'm going to try this 20 Minute Roasted Zucchini. Follow the recipe closely to find their trick to avoid soggy zucchini.
To make Hot Pepper Relish, you can choose the mixture of pepper heat that suits you. If you love spice, then go ahead and use all inferno peppers. Like things a little more mild? Mix in some bell peppers or sweet bananas.
5 Minute Tomato and Onion Salad is so simple, but sometimes you need simple to get dinner on the table.
When you have a little more time to spend in the kitchen, try Caramelized Onion Tart. The recipe is vegan, gluten-free, and soy-free. Try it for a weekend brunch!
