Frost effects our work routine. In the early mornings, the team works on alternative projects until frost is melted so our harvests don't damage delicate frosty leaves.
Frost has different effects on our crops. For some like tomatoes, peppers and eggplant, frost signals the end of productivity. This week, we're taking down the trellised tomato crops to clean up the field for a much-deserved rest and soil nutrient building for next season. While for other crops like kale, broccoli, cabbage, spinach, frost sweetens their flavor and doesn't hinder their growth.
Frost effects our daily farming lives. No matter how tired we may be (and Winston the farm dog is certainly exhausted from keeping an eye on things!), we need to summon our remaining strength to work hard every day until snow falls. The team works hard to plant and tend to farm fields for both the winter and spring upcoming seasons. Luckily we've been gifted a beautiful week full of sunshine and warmth which gives us energy and puts a smile on our faces!
Weights range from 12-25 lbs. We will do everything we can to provide you with a turkey in your desired weight range. Turkeys are frozen and packaged in a vacuum-sealed bag. Heart, liver, neck, and gizzard included inside each turkey.
Poblanosare making one last appearance in shares this season, as we saved them from the frost. Members may see a variety of shapes, colorations, and sizes but rest assured, they are all flavorful poblanos. When poblanos are smaller in size, they are my go-to for adding heat to whatever I'm making especially my favorite, white chili (recipe below).
We're having an amazing celery root season so we're distributing again this week to ensure all members can enjoy!Celery root也称为块根芹,样子滑稽但delicious relative of celery. Use a sharp kitchen knife to trim the outside layer from the bulb before chopping it. Because celery root has a mild celery flavor, we use in place of celery, as a roasted vegetable or shredded and combined with apples to make a delicious slaw. Make sure to trim the top off the bulb and the bulb will store for weeks to months in a plastic bag in the refrigerator. We left the celery root tops, which are also edible! They have a strong celery flavor, thought much more fibrous, and are best used as a flavor enhancer to make vegetable stock or within soups.
Pour about 1/2 inch of hot water in the bottom of a dish, and cover squash with foil. Bake for 30 minutes. Uncover and brush squash flesh with melted filling. Continue to bake, uncovered, until squash is easily pierced with a fork and tops are lightly glazed, 10 to 20 minutes. Serve hot.
