After withstanding three floods in 17 days, we’re all looking forward to a warm, comforting Thanksgiving meal! We’ll have deliveries as usual on Wednesday, November 25th – this upcoming box will help to provide you with some of the flavorful & festive ingredients for holiday celebrations.
We are really, really excited to be sending out sweet potatoes in your Week 4 box! For the most part, our previous attempts at growing sweet potatoes haven’t really worked out…but perhaps the warm weather this summer helped with this crop, as they all did well and have been curing in our warm seed room for the past month.
Fall Session: Week 4 Box Contents (November 25)
(Disclaimer: Please take this list with a grain of salt! We sometimes need to alter the lineup of produce as we get closer to our box-packing day. Check back on our blog for updates).
- Delicata Squash
Creamy and sweet, this is one of my favorite winter squash varieties. And the skin is edible, so they are even easy to prepare!
- Sweet Potatoes
- Pie Pumpkin
This green, part of the Brassica family (cabbage, broccoli, etc.) and related to mustard, is spicy & peppery and is considered one of the oldest green leafy veggies to be consumed by humans. “Irish monks were said to survive for long periods eating only bread and watercress and referred to watercress as ‘pure food for sages.’” (watercress.com)
- Italian Parsley
- French Breakfast Radishes
A traditional way to eat these spicy radishes is to just slice them, spread some (unsalted) butter on them, and sprinkle them with sea salt.
- Decorative Gourds
These tiny gourds are inedible but are perfect for decorating your table.
- Fuji Apples
- Bosc Pears (Regular Shares)
