QUICK TIPS: Be sure to take a look at the links for each veggie above. They take you to the vegetable directory.
Ideas for the week – Butternut Squash – Great for roasting, soups, and baking. Store at room temperature. These are keepers. They will store for many weeks and with proper storage all winter long. Don’t let them just hang out on your counter. Cook up some delicious dishes. Check out our Pinterest Board for some inspiration. Need extra inspiration – check out these two videos Roasted Butternut Kale Salad or Roasted Garlic Butternut Squash Soup. Butternut Squash soup is one of the easiest to make. We are also a big fan of Butternut Mac & Cheese. Is your household dairy-free/gluten-free? You really need to check this out. Just use gluten-free pasta. We make extra big batches at our house. Parsley – keep it fresh in a glass of water in the fridge or wrapped in a paper towel in a bag. You can also rinse/dry/place in a freezer bag/squeeze out air and put it in the freezer for later use. You can use it in our featured recipe of the week too. White Daikon – They can also be used like other radishes – raw sliced/shredded, stirfry, roasted, kimchi, sautees, and curries. You should have plenty for a single batch of this recipe. If you still have purple daikon from last week, make it a double.

Veggie Notes: We do give your veggies a rinse at the farm – however, we do recommend a second wash at home as necessary. Decisions on rinsing are made at the time of harvest and the effect it will have on your produce. Some items just store better unwashed. We do not use pesticides; therefore, it is possible that you find inhabitants in your produce. We try to restrict our plastic usage. The bags that you receive are recyclable at grocery store drop-offs.
Thank you for supporting our small farm!!!
