Week #18

Dear CSA Member,

We hope everyone has been enjoying the cool fall weather so far. It is already, hard to remember the hot and humid days as we enjoy the refreshing fall air. This week you will be getting some fall lettuce in your shares. There is always an abundance of lettuces in the spring, and then it suddenly comes to a quick halt. It should be a treat to have a fresh salad once again. This week you will also be getting more winter squash. There are plenty of ways to cook and use up your winter squash. You can also freeze the winter squash very easily. Use this link for helpful tips. You can also use the winter squash in recipes that call for pumpkin. We hope you enjoy!

This week we are delivering October’s optional Coffee, and Dry Bean Shares. (Can you believe it’s October already?!) Please, do not forget your optional shares if you ordered them.
