This week we included honeynut squash, which is a newer variety that has a richer, nutier taste than regular butternut. Your shares contain a mix of peppers including poblano, which has a mild, smokey heat, and a mix of green large sweet peppers. We've been waiting patiently for our pepper plants to start yielding more, and they're begining to reward us, so we'll be including a variety of peppers from now through the end of the season. We're feeling great about this temperature shift, though we still have a seedling house full of plants we need to get into the ground over the next few weeks, so we still have a lot of work ahead of us. We hope you enjoy the vegetables, have a great week!

This week we included spaghetti squash, which we would recommend eating within a week or two. We’ve found that once it starts to develop a blemish, it’s best to try and use it within a few days. Their thin skin doesn’t lend well to long term storage. The squash is quite versatile, and unlike real spaghetti, it can be used in sweeter applications, such as baked with brown sugar, or in muffins, cake, pie, etc. It’s feeling like soup weather, so we included three soup recipes on this week’s blog. We highly recommend the borscht below. We made a blonde borscht with golden beets, but the purple beets included in the share are also delicious and add a savory, earthy flavor. We hope you enjoy the vegetables, have a great week!
2022 CSA Week 18 Recipes
We’ve got a great mix of vegetables for you this week. We included okra for the first time this season. We recommend using the okra in gumbo, with either chicken or the more classic andouille sausage. It’s also great roasted or fried on its own. We included a small amount of lunchbox peppers, which are insanely sweet and wonderful for fresh eating. Now that the weather is cooling down, it’s the perfect time to make soup. We have great butternut soup recipe on the website, If you would like to make the squash soup a little richer add 1/2 cup heavy cream at the end. Cabbage pairs really nicely with tomatoes in soups and stews, so if you have tomatoes piling up, that’s a great way to use them. Thank you all and have a wonderful week!
