Fall is by far my favorite of the four seasons. The weather is one of the reasons, I love the cool, crisp mornings and evenings, and a warm sunny afternoon in September always feels better than one in the middle of summer. The cooler weather also means its time to start harvesting some awesome fall crops, we continue to have apples in shares this week and we have also begun picking squash and onions. This week's squash variety is acorn. If you have never prepared acorn squash, or even if you have, following is a delicious recipe that uses several of this week's crops (and the parsley from last week if you have any left). We made it for dinner on Monday night and everyone really liked it.
Their back..... our late zucchini plants are starting to produce so the big green guys are appearing in shares again this week!
If you haven't tried the zucchini crisp recipe yet, this may be your last chance of the season, you will swear it is apple crisp!
This weeks shares include:
- Cherry tomatoes
- Acorn Squash
- Yellow Onion
- Green Beans
- Jalapeno Peppers
- Cayenne Pepper
Following are a couple of pics of today's harvest and the fields this morning as the sun was coming up before the fog burned off
