Hi CSA Members!
Finishing up a late night prepping all your food for your CSA deliveries (as well as restaurant deliveries) to Cedar Rapids tomorrow. For this very reason, we’ll be keeping this newsletter a bit short (we’re tired!) but we’re happy to share this week’s upcoming CSA share list with you so you can know what to look forward to ahead of time…and hear a few updates on the farm, too.
What to expect this week:
- Kale Mix (Small Leaf)
- Spinach Bunch
- Purple Potatoes
- Acorn Squash
- Yellow Storage Onions
- Orange Carrots
- Winter Radish Medley
- Rutabagas New!
This lineup does indeed look like a wintery bunch, doesn’t it? Especially with the snow that’s been blanketing the ground as of late (though it’s come so early!) our CSA delivery this week is particularly chock-full of the more “classic” fall/winter root crops than ever before: parsnips, potatoes, squash, storage radishes, and our newest veggie for you to enjoy: rutabagas!
We hope you enjoy them all during this cold weather – and we highly recommend (most of all!) that you roast up a nice medley of these winter roots to warm you up on these cold nights – like the colorful one pictured below. It’s one of our autumn favorites!
Or do you have your own recipes or ideas in mind? We’d love to hear them – and even post them here if you like!
We’ll see you tomorrow – and very much look forward to delivering to our awesome members for these last few weeks before Thanksgiving!
