It got down to 23 degrees in our fields Monday night. Of course, Tuesday morning happened to be our first Winter CSA harvest. We had to wait until noon for the crops to thaw out before picking them.
This week's share contains radish, carrots, white salad turnips, red and
green lettuces, red bok choi, kale, sweet potatoes, butternut winter squash, and a (sample) rutabaga.
Rutabagas are underrated, and are a fantastic addition to the Thanksgiving feast. Dice them up, boil or steam them, and then mash them. For a simple dish with complex flavors, combine your mashed rutabaga with mashed potatoes. If you like your stuffing on the moist side, mix in some shredded rutabaga before you stuff it.
In light of Thanksgiving, Everyone will pick up their next share at their normal pickup site and time, but on Tues Nov20. And yes, you will get a larger quantity of rutabagas in the Thanksgiving Share.
The Winter CSA shares are distributed Every Other Week.
This week's share....
