Fruits of Fall
Fall is officially here (according to the calendar, but thankfully, not the thermometer) and that means we are saying good-bye to fresh veggies delivered (practically) to our doorstep.
We received our last delivery from the fine folks at Treasured Haven Farm, ending our first Community Supported Agriculture (CSA) season. I would really recommend this to anyone who wants to eat more locally grown produce, more naturally grown produce or just more produce in general! We did end up tossing stuff out almost every week, but we still ate more vegetables than we normally would, spent less money and got to try new things. Try it!
Let's take a look at what we get to enjoy this week. We got a few pie pumpkins, a couple of small golden spaghetti squash, a big striped spaghetti squash, a small acorn squash, a butternut squash, some unidentified squash (the white and green one on the right), red onions, spinach, potatoes, carrots and Brussels sprouts!
All these yummy autumn foods make me eager to make up a batch of apple cider and pop in "It's the Great Pumpkin, Charlie Brown." I think I'll go do that.
