If you are free this weekend you should come to the farm and check out our Adult Farm Camp (led by Elise, Kerri and I) where we will drink wine, learn about winter squash and do some cookin'! Tickets here. On Sunday Kerri will be serving up brunch in our greenhouse with a fall harvest theme-we have one seating at 10:30am. Tickets here.
We also have pastured-raised turkeys on sale (last day to put deposit down is the 12th) and Thanksgiving sides and pies also on sale! If you don't want to mess with all the cookin' thinking about having us do it for you! 5 different pies, mashed potatoes, gravy, cranberry sauce and more. Info HERE (last day to reserve is the 19th).
Last BUT NOT least, a reminder that we DO have a CSA PICK-UP on Wednesday, November 22. If you will not be able to pick-up, put your share on hold now! Log-in to your CSA account to put the share on hold or email me! If you are in town and cooking it will be an awesome Thanksgiving themed share with a bit bounty including brussels sprouts, butternut squash and more!
DAIKON RADISH: This variety of Japanese radish are purple! They can be known to grow up to 3 feet long and weigh up to 60lbs. Some of you received one huge one while others got several smaller guys. The greens are totally edible like you would any radish or turnip. We included some carrots (either a huge one or a couple small) so that you can make a recipe with the daikon because most folks have no idea what to do with daikon!
I would either made daikon/carrot pickles (recipe HERE), a roasted dish (recipe HERE) or a yummy salad (recipe HERE) or maybe you'll get creative. Most folks I talk to say they don't like daikon but generally turns out they just have no idea what to do with it. You can also braise it, make Banh mi or daikon french fries and more!
RUSSET POTATOES: Our weekly potato share (the goal is for you to never have to purchase potatoes!) You could make a great squash/potato recipe with this week's share. Especially with the shallots and dill!
SCALLIONS: For you weekly folk I know we put these in the share last week but they just don't like the cold so we wanted to save them while we could! Great for a potato dish, salad and more!
DILL: On a similar note, same with dill. I KNOW you've had a lot of dill but heck, we have a lot of dill and it is growing so well this year and the gophers seem to be leaving it alone (unlike the parsley).
EGGPLANT/BROCCOLI: Not enough of either to go around to so we split it down the middle! Eggplant is either Asian or Ukranian. Most likely last of the season!
