WILD HARE WEEKLY FALL #8/11
Happy Thanksgiving! It is a holiday harvest week, and the farm will be plentifully stocked with organic produce for those holiday meals and leftovers. (Brussels Sprouts, Sweet Potatoes, Onions, Roots & more, of course!) We’re holding our regular Tuesday (12-7) and Wednesday (10-5) hours. If you pre-ordered bread, we’ll have it for you at the counter. I look forward to seeing you at the farm, and if you’re one of the folks picking up a CSA share at the farm this week, I hope that you’re pumped to mix and match your roots and apples this week. For me, the best apple pie, tart, crisp or sauce is one that mixes several varieties, tart, sweet, red, pink and green. And for the roots, you really can’t beat the recipe below for “Bagas & Butter,” as Jade has affectionately named it. If you don’t make it for all of your guests this week, there’s no shame in savoring it for yourself. It is that good.
And as you read this, please know that am so very thankful for YOU. I remain in awe of the people we are lucky enough to share this place with, and I wish you all a whole lot of love at at time when, lets face it, the world could use a whole lot more of it. Love…and vegetables. I am so grateful for the sustenance and sense of meaning that you bring to our lives. I hope that we all get to eat well, spend good time with good folks, slow down and take a break this weekend, but I know that is much easier said than done. It was super frosty in our part of the valley this morning, which meant I had to deal with a super antsy Mark who just wanted to get out there and harvest carrots. Mark in turn had to deal with an even antsier Kim who wanted to harvest and plant in the greenhouses, but had to wait for things to thaw. (All frost and no work turns the farmers here into real pains in the neck). Thankfully, the afternoon is gorgeous and the crew is out there, giving it their all for the Thanksgiving harvest of carrots and braising greens.
