At this time of year the farm often operates as two separate entities. One wing harvests potatoes all day everyday while the other carries the weight of all other harvests. On Thursday at 5:00, just ahead of some very cold weather, we finished our potato harvest. It was an epic dash to the finish. A big thank you to the rest of the crew for holding down the fort and keeping the veggies flowing! Now we'll all join forces to bring in the crops that remain outside and get the farm cleaned up for winter.
We have some beautiful celeriac in storage now with more to come in this week. You will find it your share this week. Celeriac is a great addition to soups and roasts very well. Don't be fooled by its bumpy irregular appearance, it's a real treat! The kohlrabi in your share this week is of the winter storage type. It must be pealed, but the white interior is crisp and sweet. Great raw grated on salad or cut into sticks for a dip platter. Some folks roast it and even make kohlrabi chips in the oven.
We have the same selection of winter squash available this week but don't forget pie pumpkins for that Thanksgiving pie! You can grab them in place of winter squash.
Enjoy this season of eating! Greg
