2016 Harvest 19

Howdy folks and welcome to week 19 of your Tumbleweed Farm CSA! It's been quite busy around here these past few days with harvesting and cleaning up the fields in preparation for winter. It's starting to look a little bare out there! We still have one large section of the farm dedicated to all things fall--lettuces, kale, roots, spinach, Asian greens, scallions, broccoli, cabbage and cauliflower. However, the rest of the farm is getting tilled under which feels AMAZING! We're always planning ahead and winter prep work is just as important as spring prep. 

This week we're debuting the first round of winter squash in your boxes (yippee!) The variety is Fairy and it's a sweet/nutty winter squash that can be used in any recipe that calls for butternut squash, acorn or even pumpkin. It's lovely roasted, steamed, pureed, and amazing in soups or stews. We grew a lot of this variety on the farm we worked on back east and this is our first year growing at it Tumbleweed Farm.  It's absolutely wonderful and we hope you enjoy it as much as we do!

This week we're also debuting the fall spinach. It's a hearty variety that's amazing eaten raw or even sautéed in a little sesame oil and ginger. So GOOD!

Anyhow, we hope this week you all get to enjoy a few home cooked meals with your family and friends. Cheers to the harvest!

Your farmers,
T & A
