This week’s share is awesome, if I do say so myself. Sweet dumpling squashes, sweet onions, carrots, beets, and–what’s this??–POBLANO PEPPERS?! I’m thinking fajitas tonight, with some venison from the freezer.
Next week, in prep for Thanksgiving, we’ll be ordering pie pumpkins! Happy local eating everyone!
How about a rainbow assortment of carrots, sweet peppers, and onions this week? Then throw in some parsnips and Ginger Gold apples and you got yourself one delightful-looking share! I think a carrot-parsnip soup is in order for this week, and maybe some stuffed peppers. I made jalapeno poppers a few weeks ago, but I suppose there’s no reason why I couldn’t do the same thing with a bunch of tiny bell peppers.
Enjoy this late summer bounty while it lasts! And don’t forget if you want to sign up for our 6 week fall share to get your membership form and payment to us by October 4th! Happy local and seasonal eating!
One of the most exciting weeks of the year for us at the CSA is watermelon week. It means summer is officially here in fine food form. And this is one heck of a share this week to boot: cherry tomatoes, jalapenos, sweet onions, and basil. I think I might have to make salsa!
We’ve had a few folks already ask if we are going to offer a fall share again this year. We are! We are going to offer a 6 week share beginning immediately after the summer share, so that will take us up to the week of Thanksgiving (October 20 – November 24). Last year we were able to get pie pumpkins, potatoes, carrots, and other Thanksgiving-y items and we plan to do the same again this year. Of course, it all depends on what’s available, but we usually do pretty good in that department. We’ll start signing people up next week, so bring your checkbooks with you to the pick up!
Thanks again for supporting Helena Local and local, seasonal eating!
