late fall week 1

 

WHAT’S IN THE BOX:
orange and purple carrots
curly kale
spaghetti squash
yellow onions
red and yellow cipollini onions
garlic
kohlrabi
Russian banana potatoes
rosemary
rutabaga
Deadon cabbage

NOTES ABOUT THE PRODUCE:
Potatoes-They look a little rough, I know. This variety was afflicted with and excessive amount of surface scabbing. A quick spot peeling will do the trick. These are the best potatoes to use for grillling. Refer to last the Early Fall Week 2 newsletter for a refresher on how to do it.
Purple carrots: These are also fabulous on the grill.
Kohlrabi, cabbage, and orange carrots are so fresh and delicious raw. It is nice to have the sweet, crunchiness to balance out all the starchier squash and potatoes.

I hope you all had a lovely Thanksgiving. We packed the house with 15 family and friends and ate waaaaaay too much! This particular holiday is always amazing when shared with other farm folk. I’d say 90% of the meal was sourced right from our little valley. We are polishing off the leftovers tonight.

It is Small Business Saturday! There’s all sorts of locally crafted shopping opportunities in downtown Olympia. The Olympia Farmers Market always has a wide variety of interesting and versatile crafts. On Saturday (that’s today!) you should check out Duck The Malls at the Capital Theater. There is an overflow event at Gallery Boom at 520 Adams. While you are downtown, you could wander around and check out the little shops and restaurants. Additionally, there is the Lincoln Craft fair from 11-4 at Lincoln Elementary. I am not as familiar with the little local shops around the Proctor Farmers Market, but I know there are a ton. Check ’em out!

Have a great week!
