This week we’ve been busy transplanting and direct seeding many root crops, onions, and garlic, which, if you can believe it, will be ready in time for our 2022 CSA season in late April/early May. We’re adding low tunnels to carry the crops through winter, after which their growth will pick up through spring. This week we included a mix of root vegetables in the share If you keep them in a bag in your fridge, they should last a few weeks or longer, though they’ll have the best flavor the sooner you eat them. Since we don’t spray any pesticides their skin has some damage from ground-dwelling insects, but it peels easily and the interior has great texture and flavor. Last week’s frost has made them sweeter, and we really enjoyed them in this week’s root mash, and in the pancake recipe below. The frost also improved the flavor of our leafy greens, so the kale and escarole are very tasty this time of year. We hope you enjoy the second to last share!
