In Your Box:
Potatoes: A mix and the last week of potatoes.
Delicata Winter Squash
Are you eating your greens and making green smoothies and juices? Maybe it was because I didn’t want to eat greens at all while I was pregnant this past summer, but I’ve been inhaling the winter greens lately and yum! We’ve been having sides of spinach, kales, cabbages every night and making banana, blueberry, kale smoothies. Yum! I can’t seem to get enough. Maybe it is the time of year — a time when you can no longer eat all those heavy starchy vegetables like potatoes and turnips and instead, craving yummy greens.
We got the hoophouse up! That’s exciting. I’ve posted pictures below. The weather has been so great too and the soil has dried enough that we will begin soil preparation this next week on the farm getting ready for spring planting. Wow! We can’t believe it is rolling again. The hoophouses will be planted in a couple of weeks and all the seed is starting to roll in the mail. The greenhouse is already filling up. Markets are starting in less than two months! Phew. A quick winter, once again, but we’re excited to get going again. We’ve had fun planning for next year’s winter CSA and look forward to adding more winter crops next year like celery, celery root, parsnips, burdock root and other grains like flour corn, beans and barley. We’re really looking forward to exploring our creativity in this venue.
Enjoy the veggies this week and please don’t forget to email or call with any questions or comments.
