CSA: Weekly Share

The prize-winners are all picked!
Carnival and Sweet Potato squash
As the days are getting shorter and the temps lower, our crops are slowing down, too. We still have an amazing variety for mid-October, but none-the-less, our harvests are waning. They just picked a bunch of Doc martins and green beans, and the squash continues to be plentiful. The sweet potatoes are certainly in abundance this week, but onions, garlic and yellow potatoes are all over. Carnival squash is on the list, and you also get to pick one of the gorgeous large heirloom gourds (or squashes). Tomatoes are still pumping out big red, juicy fruits. And the corn is still as sweet as it gets!

If you haven't gotten any pumpkins yet, now is the time. We are knee deep in an amazing selection of all sizes, shapes and colors of pumpkins, squash, gourds, giant pumpkins and just about anything you'd like to decorate with!

This weeks list:
3 sweet corn
1 lb. tomatoes
1 lb. squash
1 lb. green beans
1lb. Doc Martin Limas
5 ea hot peppers
2 carnival squash
1 lb. sweet potatoes
1 large gourd (or squash)
2 indian corn (mini or regular)

Enjoy this Indian Summer weather!
