Week 17 – Summer 2010

Oct 7, 2010 | Box Contents, Recipes, Week 17

Hello everyone!

We are getting down to the last couple of weeks here and it is getting to be more of a challenge to inject some variety into your Farmshare boxes. However, just as many varieties of veggies are fading away, the brussels sprouts are just coming ready. I included a whole stalk in your box because they look so interesting on the plant. Before coming to the farm I had only ever seen brussels sprouts frozen in a bag. So, if you have kids, make sure they check out the plant for a little agriculture education.

Also, this week I added some pie pumpkins. Contrary to the name, there are lots of other things you can do with pumpkin that don’t involve pastry-making. I made pumpkin pancakes (recipe) the other day, my sister-in law made some delicious pumpkin muffins with bursts of cranberry (recipe) and you can also make squares or even first course items like soup. They are in the squash family after all.

I think I must be in the thanksgiving mood because I put an extra item in your boxes this week without realizing it. No wonder I has such difficulty closing them!

Anyways, I would love to offer you a wonderful Thanksgiving where I hope you enjoy your family and friends and of course good food alongside.  Remember, the farm store is open Fridays and Saturdays from 10-6 for your last-minute shopping (lots of squash, carrots, beets, pumpkins and even jams if you do Thanksgiving brunch).

Happy Thanksgiving!
