This week's shares will include:

Fuji apples

turnips

spaghetti squash

kale

white potatoes

winter squash

 

Fuji are a great sweet apple.

Mixing turnips with potatoes to cook or bake gives a great flavor.  I just made some spaghetti squash with garlic, oregano, olive oil, salt and pepper.  it was delicious and so easy to make.  The winter squash will keep for weeks so do not feel that you need to be in a hurry to use them. 

Do remember that if you have any pint or jelly jars sitting around at home please bring them back or put them in your boxes.  We like to reuse instead of recycle.

If you are looking for great home grown fresh turkey for Thanks giving check out our store or talk to one of us at the stands this week.  We have about 30 turkeys left to sell.  you can order on line for delivery  at DOT November 10, 17

Columbia November 12,19

Westminster November 14, 21

NGS - November 10, 17, 24

St Luke's - November 14,21

 

Check out our online store if you would like to add any items to your share this week.  You will be supporting our local farm.

 

Looking forward to seeing everyone this week.
