Hi Folks, welcome to week 6 of your fall CSA. Hope everyone had a wonderful week. Our tomatoes are really starting to peak. So many are coming out of the field. We are picking as many as we can to prepare for the possibility of a frost this weekend. If we do get a frost it will be the end to tomatoes, squash, and basil, but I just love this time of the year and the weather so much right now. Minus the lack of rain part of course, but the nights feel wonderful! It really feels like the last transition into winter.
We planted a large cover crop/deer deterrent under the huge super moon. It was so beautiful and felt so close to us. Hopefully the deer will find this mix of greens planted tasteful and will prefer it over our crop of vegetables.
Looking forward to this week with the Food Summit at the Ag. Museum. It is such a wonderful way to gain knowledge about the food around you. There are so many speakers from all over the country and such inspiring people there to talk to. We hope to see some of you there.
We would like to remind everyone that we will only have one pick-up day next week, which is the week of Thanksgiving. It will be on Tuesday, November 22. Two pick up locations include at M7 Coffee house in Ridgeland or at the farm in Flora from 4-6pm at both locations. We will send out an email to further explain the details and ask you where you will be picking up. Please keep on the lookout for this email. We would also like to let y'all know ahead of time what will be in your box for next week's holidays, so you are able to plan around the veggies you will be getting. You can expect to see Kabocha squash, which makes the best squash (pumpkin) pie! You can also expect to see butternut squash, plenty of greens to cook down and roots to roast, broccoli for casseroles, cabbage, and more tomatoes, plus some other yummies.
Be sure to look at the pictures below, our CSA member Barbara sent pictures of her cauliflower pizza she made!! Looks delicious. Also, there is a recipe below for an easy cheat to cauliflower pizza. Hope y'all have a wonderful week. Here are the contents of this week's box:
2. Curly Kale
5. Zucchini or Squash
6. Spaghetti Squash
8. Watermelon Radish
