October 5 or 8 CSA

This is the last share of the regular season for this year.  Thank You Thank You Thank You for seeing us through another year on the farm.  It has been an ever-so challenging one on multiple fronts but we have still eaten well I think.
Your share this week includes:  1 long island cheese pumpkin, 2 pounds of strawberry paw potatoes, 1 small fennel bulb, 1 head of red bibb lettuce, 1 head of frissee endive, 1 bunch of collard greens, 1 head of garlic.

The pumpkin will keep up until january or so and will continue to get sweeter if it sits until november sometime.  That being said, we did bake one and make a pie with it this week and it is quite tasty right now.  These pumpkins also make great soup.

The endive, red bibb, and baby fennel are really good combined in a salad with a simple red wine vinaigrette.
The collards are tender and require only a short cooking time.  They are good with quinoa, sweet peppers and red onions chilled or warm.
