CSA Share for 2012 Week Eighteen

This week was our last CSA pickup.  However, it certainly wasn’t the last of the duties for our farmers.  They are already thinking ahead to growing our veggies for NEXT year.  Preparing and enriching the soil, planting garlic, and turning the compost pile are but a few among many preparations that need to be done now.  All we need to do is rest assured that our farmers are taking good care of the fields, and dream of the fresh veggies we’ll receive next year.

In our share this week:

  • kale
  • arugula
  • onions
  • potatoes
  • beets

The farm party was SO much fun, and the weather decided to cooperate after all…it was a beautiful night.  I can’t believe the spread our farmers put out, with all the grilling meat, carving pumpkins, bonfire setup, and s’more supplies.  Truly amazing.  And as always, my husband, boys, and I were in food-heaven with the ever-changing buffet in the farm stand.  People really put in their best effort for their farm party food creations.

I did make the squash pie I mentioned in my last post, and it was  delicious.  I used our buttercup squash, as the Squash Pie recipe suggested.  For my crust, I used the Winter Squash Pie recipe’s no-roll pie crust recipe, which was fantastic and very easy to make.  (As you can see in the photo, I couldn’t stop “tasting” the final product!) I’ll randomly post tasty recipes that I find and try throughout the “off-season,” and of course if anyone hits upon a great dish, just let me know and I’ll post it.
