Fall CSA – Week 3

Leave a comment

Our Georgetown Farmers’ Market ended this past Saturday.

And what an ending it was!

Rain, wind, cold, sun … we had it all.

But after a summer of almost perfect weather every Saturday we felt we shouldn’t complain – though of course we did anyway.

Despite the weather, sales were good and it ended up being a very successful day. Georgetown residents always support their market in a big way.

Thank you Georgetown for a great season!

What’s in the box?

Red cabbage, radishes, beets, pea shoots, salad greens, green onions, sweet pepper, garlic.

Extras – winter squash

  • Red cabbage is a favourite vegetable of mine – especially the way my mother prepared it. I have included a similar recipe below.
  • Radishes are usually considered a spring crop, but they thrive in the cooler weather of fall as well. Enjoy a bunch of “spring radishes” in your box this week.
  • Continuing with red vegetables, we are still harvesting beets.
  • Pea shoots are a delicious green that taste like … peas! Snip them off as needed and add them to your salads, sandwiches, wraps and even stir fries. If you cut them about half way down and keep them well watered, they will regrow and you can keep on harvesting them.
  • Salad greens, green onions, sweet peppers, and garlic complete the box.
  • Winter squash is available for those who want it.

Sauteed Red Cabbage

  • olive oil
  • 1 small onion thinly sliced
  • 1/2 medium head red cabbage – shredded
  • 1/4 cup vinegar
  • 2 tablespoons sugar
  • salt & pepper
  • Saute onions in olive oil over medium heat for several minutes.
  • Add cabbage and continue to saute for another 5 minutes.
  • Add vinegar, sugar, salt & pepper.
  • Lower heat and cook for 10-15 minutes, stirring occasionally.

Around the farm this week …

A colourful pick up for week 2 of our fall CSA, last week.
Our 2 rows of old blackberries have been removed & the roots pulled.
Here are the 2 new rows planted in 2021. Next year we will harvest our first crop.
Tomatoes – gone!
Plenty of beautiful greens growing for the last 3 weeks of fall CSA.

Fall colours in the gardens and around the farm.
