2018 CSA Week 24 Recipes

The count down to the last share is on and we are trying to figure out how to load you up with all of the goodies we have left in the garden. Our tomatoes are still going strong and we included a healthy amount of romas as well as beefsteak tomatoes this week. It feels like the weather has turned cold overnight which means everyone should stay inside and cook. We have some wonderful recipies with all of these great fall vegetables in the share this week.
