CSA Week 13

There is a chill in the air! I love the fall weather, but I am hoping to have a nice long autumn this year. Many of our plants got a blanket to cuddle with last night with freeze advisory in effect. I don’t think we had a frost at our location, though I did hear that many areas had lows in the 30-33 range. Brrr!

Members have another spaghetti squash this week. If you’d like to save this for later eating, wipe down with a 1:10, bleach:water solution and it will keep for several months. This is a good practice for any of the winter squash or pumpkin varieties you’d like to keep rather than eat now. Try something different than the usual spaghetti sauce topping, maybe with parmasean and herbs or in a Spiced Squash Pancake!

Beets and green beans also made it into this weeks share. I will admit that I am not a fan of beets, though I will try them if they are one someone else’s table. That said this recipe for roasted beets over beet greens looks interesting, and would be a great way to use it all. Green bean casserole will always be my favorite way to eat these lovelies, but it’s good to mix it up a bit with Balsamic Green Beans.

The last few items will go together quite nicely in a Ratatouille: onion, green pepper, eggplant and summer squash.

Enjoy this lovely cool weather!
