September 18 CSA

small boxes this week have:  2 small heads bibb lettuce, 1 small bunch cilantro, 1 yellow onion, 2 garlic, 1 lb yellow wax beans, 1 lb. green beans, 1 1/3 lb patty pan squash, 1 mix bunch carrot -beet -celeriac.
regular boxes have:  2 small heads bibb lettuce, 1 regular bunch cilantro, 2 yellow onions, 2 garlic, 1 1/2 lb. each of yellow wax and green snap beans, 2 1/2 lb. patty pan squash, 1 bunch beets, 1 bunch carrots, 1 celeriac, 1 mix bunch kale and collards.

Onions and garlic do not need to be refrigerated.  All else needs to be. 

Try roasting the root vegetables. If you have potatoes to throw in with them that's good. The celeriac is the strange gnarly looking vegetable. It needs to be peeled and then cut into long strips about 1/4 inch around. I cut the beets into quarters and the carrots in half and toss it all with olive oil and salt and pepper. You can add whole beans to this too. If you have pine nuts, almonds, or walnuts add those too! Roast in a 450 degree oven for 25 minutes or so and enjoy plain or with hot sauce or ketchup.

This morning harvesting, we could feel fall in the air. The breeze was cool and the shadows longer. We were in the field before light and got to watch the sunrise as we picked cilantro, lettuce, and greens. Beautiful. It made me think about what a strange summer it has been with very few HOT days. I thought I'd be so happy to see fall come and I am but with a tinge of sadness as I know the shorter days brings a different pace. And a need to find the warm clothes that have been forgotten for months.
