Week 22–Part I

***OUR LAST DISTRIBUTION UNTIL OUR THANKSGIVING SHARE***

Well, here we are! Week 22. The last distribution before our final distribution the week of Thanksgiving! It’s going to be a hefty share this week, so the blog post will take place in (at least!) two parts. First I will give you the usual list of items, part I. Then, in part II, I will post recipes and photos, as well as what to expect the week of Thanksgiving.

But first, some news…

FOR GARRISON DISTRIBUTION MEMBERS

Wes and Bryn will be joining Sam at the distribution this week. Please take a moment to say “hi,” they are the new farmers in 2012!

SIGN UPS HAVE ALREADY BEGUN!

Wes and Bryn have informed me that 2012 sign ups have already been coming in! On the main page of this here website, there is a tab that says SIGN UP! This page has all the updated 2012 information.

WHAT TO EXPECT THIS WEEK:

head lettuce

1 bunch kale

1 bunch chard

1 bunch baby misato rose radishes*

1 bunch beets

1 bunch leeks

1 bunch turnips

carrots by the pound

parsnips by the pound

1 butternut squash

onions

garlic


*These lovely radishes usually get very large, and are a glorious root vegetable. However, due to our waterlogged field. they have not grown a bit in over a month, so they look like salad radishes. The tops are insanely good, so eat them or freeze them for a sweet and tender green.
