Week 5: In prep for Thanksgiving

This week we are gearing up for Thanksgiving!  We ordered pie pumpkins so you have time to cook them up over the weekend and make your delicious, homemade pumpkin puree for that pumpkin pie you’ve been waiting for all year…or is that just me?  We ran short by a few this week because the pumpkins are SO BIG this year!  So if you don’t get a pumpkin this week (get here early for the best shot!) then you will definitely get one next week.  We also have Russet potatoes for those mashers, some faro–treat it like brown rice, and wouldn’t you know it: lettuce!  The lettuce is actually an awesome surprise this week because we’re having venison spaghetti tonight and a salad will be a dandy addition to the meal.

ONE FINAL IMPORTANT NOTE:

Are you interested in getting eggs over the winter?  If so, talk to Jared today and let him know you are interested.  Our egg produces have eggs coming out their ears, so we are thinking of offering a monthly subscription over the winter so you don’t have to buy store-bought eggs!  We’ll offer weekly dozens or bi-weekly dozens, so we don’t have to fuss with half dozens per week.  Since my girls are molting and have stopped laying for the winter, I’m definitely game for this idea!

Next Tuesday is our FINAL week of Fall Share!  We’ll try to find more Thanksgiving-y items for your share to send you out with a memorable, bountiful share this year.

Perhaps a salad for Week 8?

This week is salad week!  We have a variety of lettuces for you to choose from: red leaf lettuce, red butterhead lettuce (seen above), or a green leaf lettuce.  Your choice!  We have heirloom tomatoes, too!  You’ll see a variety of colors, so pick wisely!  And slicing cucumbers round out the share this week.  We ordered some green onions, but they didn’t show up.  So we’ll have something extra next week to make up for a smaller share this week.

And take a look at our fun share this week:

The fresh pasta is a favorite.  And the honey?  Yum yum!  How fun is this?
