Week 9

Week 4's intro was so telling, huh . . . well, we are back, finally enough stuff post flood to mention and post some member recipes as well.  And give a bit of an update.  First the update: we have planted more fall stuff than normal, and as with the last natural disaster, Irene, I have actually learned a valuable farming lesson from all this: late summer and fall are wonderful times to grow, and even lean on in terms of production.  Spring is such a battle to get things to germinate and then struggle past the weeds, whether it is brocolli, arugala, carrots - it is all easier to grow in the fall.  Yes, there is the limit of temperature and daylight, so it can only last so long here in Vermont, but depending on the fall the greens can keep going even to Thanksgiving (in the best of years).

We are having some baby collards cooked in chicken fat (just from bone-in chicken thighs with a bit of Lawry's) and fresh white onions, blueberries and whipped cream for desert.


Anyway, without further ado:

potatoes
tomatoes
garlic
celery
cukes
squash


and a whole slew of fun things to do with CSA veggies
