It’s Still Hot, but Winter’s Coming

weekly CSA produce share
The winter forecast calls for greens, lots of greens.

Even though we’re expected to have record temperatures later this week — nearly 100°F for the first part of October, yikes! — we can see winter approaching steadily. No, not in the weather forecast, but in our produce share. Just look, two kinds of greens! That means nothing other than winter in this area. It also means that we’ll have to start working on our “greens cooking skills,” because, if we get behind for even a few days, we won’t catch up.

This week’s share:

  • Tendergreens (1 bag) — as a single word, it’s a mild heirloom mustard; as two words it could be anything green and tender
  • Arugula (1 bag)
  • Acorn Squash (1)
  • White onions (2)
  • Roasted Green chilies (1 bag)
  • Squash blossoms (1 bag)
  • Pickling cucumbers (3)
  • Golden Delicious apples (4)
