A few notes on the box…..

Might just be the end of the Broccoli. We are trying to stretch out the Spinach for another week. Squash should pick up in the next couple weeks, as with potatoes.

The final box will be delivered Monday Nov. 22.   Please make a note of it so you don’t miss the last box of the season!  Just in time for Thanksgiving.

Recipes…..

Tuscan Soup (Kale and White Bean Soup)

3 cloves of minced garlic

1 onion diced

a few carrots diced

a few stalks of celery diced

Saute above in a large heavy bottom stew pot for about 10 min.  Stir in 1 can of crushed tomatoes and some red pepper flakes.  Add a bunch of lacinato (or tuscan kale- the kind that’s in the box this week) that has had the thick part of the stalk removed and has been chopped.  Add 6 cups of water or broth, 3 cups of cooked white beans.  Bring to a boil then reduce to a simmer for about 10 min.  Mash another cup of cooked white beans with some water.  Tear several slices of stale bread up and add the mashed beans and bread to the soup.  Simmer for 20 more minutes.  Salt to taste and add the zest of one lemon if you have one around.

On the farm….

Otto helped with the broccoli this week.  He said it was so easy that he could do it in his sleep!

This is Nick’s last week!  Nick has been an AMAZING help here on the farm.  Always willing to do what needs to be done with humor and care.  And willing to help out whenever he has been needed, even on days off!  Thank you SO MUCH!  We can’t say enough how great it’s been having you on the farm this season!  Good luck with your next adventure!  We will miss you!
