Can you believe we have just 4 more weeks of farm share left? For those of us who get our shares biweekly that means just 2 more boxes! The summer has flown by and now we are tasting fall, our turkey is on order from Don Howard Farms in Newmarket-which means thanksgiving is just around the corner. Home made pumpkin pies, apples from the orchard and of course, amazing stuff from Zephyr Organics will be on our table to enjoy this Thanksgiving. Here is a note from Jen:

In just a couple of weeks it will be Thanksgiving already. The summer has flown by and the shorter days and cooler nights are a sure sign that winter is just around the corner. This week I canned zucchini relish and this rockin salsa recipe. I had a ton of tomatillos from all of my boxes and so I substitued some of the tomato weight for tomatillos and it gave it a bit more of a sweet flavor. I must say, I am impressed with myself since it’s my first go at canning and they both taste amazing! Here is a great recipe for asian pear pie recipe as well as a recipe for asian pear slaw recipe.
Here is what you can expect in your boxes this week:
This week I will be making salsa with all the tomatoes as well as making zucchini relish. I’ll let you know how they turn out!
