Week #18 – 2012 CSA Season

What’s in the Box: Potatoes (red), leek, tomatillo, yellow storage onions, rainbow cherry tomatoes(variety),  eggplant, green and purple bell pepper,  anaheim peppers(large green chile, medium hot), serrano pepper(hot), and collard greens.

What’s going on at the farm:  Cooler nights and beautiful fall temperate weather has started to come in.  These temps will make for some delicious salad greens over the last few weeks of the season.   Fall potatoes are in and leeks make a great paring with these dense creamy tubers.   We pulled plastic mulch and drip line this week and we are working on cleaning up the farm in general.  Of course still busy with harvesting, washing and packing all the veggies and still planning on some late plantings this week for some sweet late season greens.  A few ideas for your tomatilloes this week include salsa verde, or chile verde.  They can also be slow roasted like tomatoes for a sweet roasted sauce or salsa. Also, they make an excellent addition to enchiladas and other mexican foods.
