Farm Share Week 16: Sept 14-16, 2016

Many changes this week are making it feel a lot like fall! Lots of harvest to bring in, those cool nights and (gasp) dark mornings. Fall on the farm is nothing to get upset about, though, because the harvest is rich. New this week we have beets, green peppers (finally in plenty!), and red cabbage and Asian pears for whole shares. Tomatoes are still going on strong as well as tomatillos: email Jen if you have any canning and preserving plans for bulk items.
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:
Week 16
-watermelon (sugar baby)
-green beans
-green kale
-field tomatoes
-grape tomatoes
-green peppers‎
-cherry tomatoes
-asian pears (look like apples)
-red cabbage

About the Author


My name is Stephanie Hofman and this is my 5th year with the farm share program.
I am an earth loving hippie-follower of Christ-lover of all people and love to try new things. I am not a blogger outside of zephyr organics-so please keep this in mind as I continue to learn the in’s and out’s of what it means to create a good blog and to be a good blogger!

My family and I do our best to make everything at home from scratch, but we are not fully organic, non-GMO, nor are we dairy free or gluten free. I do my best with what I have and am slowly but surely making changes towards a more healthy lifestyle.

I try and keep the recipes that I share to encompass all diets-some will be desserts, some will be juicing recipes (last year I failed epically at my juicing fast-FYI don’t add ‘more kale’ just to use it up in a recipe) some gluten and dairy free-some vegan and many in between.

Most of the items in the box I am familiar with now-but a few years ago I didn’t know what bokchoy was nor had I ever heard of swiss chard-now they are my 2 favourite items to get in my box!

I’m a free going spirit who has taught herself most things and love to help others out since I’ve only become who I am and gotten to where I am in life because of the love and generosity of those who’ve I’ve encountered. I’ve never been very good at spelling nor have I been very computer savvy. Any feedback and suggestions are always welcome.

Thank you so much for joining us on this journey towards supporting local farmers and supporting the growing organic food movement. May your box bless you and your family all season long and I look forward to sharing my recipe successes and failures with you.
