We hope everyone had a great week! Van and I had a very busy week moving from our house in Madison that we recently sold and moved to a 5th wheel travel trailer in Flora. We decided to do this to save money and live a more simple life close to the farm. This week's harvest is full of fabulous fall produce with a few hints of the remaining summer season, such as lemon basil and tomatoes.
We wanted to inform everyone of an event coming up in a few weeks. The Mississippi sustainable agricultural network has put together an event called The 2016 Mississippi Food Summit & Agricultural Revival. It's a great event to learn about local farming and gardening. Here is a link to their website. http://www.mssagnet.net/programs/ms-food-summit/

Hope everyone has a great week and look forward to digging into their box this week! Here are the contents of this week's box:
1. Cabbage- A head of green cabbage. One of my favorite ways to eat this is Sliced about an inch thick and roasted in the oven. Try putting slice of bacon on it to roast as well.
2. Hakurei turnips
4. Lemon Basil- Fragrant basil that makes for wonderful sauces, marinades, or drinks.
5. Spaghetti squash- This wonderful winter squash is delicious as a side dish or try substituting for noodles in a dish. Once cooked, you can spoon out the squash which looks similar to spaghetti noodles.
7. Yukina savoy- This leavy green produces thick and savoyed leaves in dark green color. The plant grows very well in various climates. Young tender leaves and stalks are excellent for salad mix and stir-fry dishes. Also referred to as Asian spoon spinach because it cooks and looks similar to spinach.
8. Watermelon radish- An heirloom variety of daikon radish originate in China that doesn't actually taste like watermelon, but once cut into it resembles a watermelon with its green exterior and pink interior colors.
