Hi Folks and welcome to week 4 of your fall CSA! We have another good one for you this week! We hope everyone enjoyed last week’s bounty. New to the box this week are, Sprigarello, head of lettuce, radishes, and Delicata Squash. So y’all have had the Sweet Dumpling, Butternut, and now the Delicata. I would love to hear some feedback on which one y’all like the best so far!

Myself and the kids have been fighting a cold. It is that time of year again. I am making another round of elderberry syrup to try to keep it at bay the rest of the season. And I am making a big pot of greens and we are going to drink all the broth and eat all the greens. That is always an instant health boost.

We just finished our last big planting of the year this past Saturday. It should get us through until the end of December. We went to the new True Local Market in Ridgeland this past Sunday. It is located at such a nice area, and Hazel was able to run around with other children and play on the playground. There was live music and a local vegan food vender. All in all it was fun! We hope y’all have a great week full of healthy meals. Here are the contents of this week’s box, Cheers!

  1. Delicata Squash- Another fine winter squash variety, this one you can leave the skin on, cook, and eat! Game changer!!

  2. Field Grown Lettuce

  3. Baby Radishes with Greens

  4. Pickling Cucumbers- Stock up on pickles for the fall while you can!

  5. Carrots

  6. Spigarello- Cooking green that taste a lot like broccoli. Some refer to it as broccoli rabe and others call it "leaf broccoli." I'd put it somewhere between kale and broccoli.

  7. Shishito Peppers

Roasted Delicata Squash

Roasted Delicata Squash with Onion and herbs

Sautéed Spigarello

Spigarello with Raisins and Pine Nuts
