2010 CSA Newsletter, Week 12 – fall is here

Just a quick late post this week. The field has begun its slow decline, with just 5 more weeks of CSA delivery! This week we started picking new potatoes (these have tender skins and won’t store for very long) – marble/carbondale/redstone – well have yours next week) and the cauliflower is starting (orange and purple, farm pickup next week). I also picked the first winter squash this week – delacata, acorn and festival – these will taste best if you let them sit on the shelf for a week or two.
