Harvest Notes

Apples This variety from the past couple of weeks is called Macintosh. Look out for other varieties coming up!

Carrots We have a great crop of fall carrots coming in! Use the greens in soup stock or compost them. The carrots will store best with a little bit of the leaves left on.

Onion These are fully cured and can be stored out of the fridge.

Red Bells and Sweet Italian Frying Peppers This is a good season to get creative with peppers. Try making a roasted red pepper soup (add in a few tomatoes and beets if you still have them from last week), red pepper dip, stuffed red peppers, or get the freezer bags out!

Garlic Try wrapping in tin foil and roasting in the oven until soft.

Napa Cabbage This Asian savoy cabbage is delicious in raw, marinated salad with carrots, red peppers, and tomato or lightly cooked in a stir-fry.

Eggplant This is likely the last week for eggplant so enjoy that final ratatouille, fried eggplant, eggplant parmesan or babaganoush of the season!

Tomato Our tomato numbers are dropping down as we near the end of tomato season. We will likely have modest number of tomatoes for the next couple of weeks but the days of double digit tomatoes in the share are over.

Dill This herb doesn’t keep long fresh but you can dry it and pull the leaves off into a jar if you want. Try dill in salad dressings, with meat or fish, or in soup.
