Week of September 13, 2010
It has been a busy week at Rolling Acres Farm. Last Thursday our children Caia and Briana arrived with their ten month old babies, Caleb and Lyla. Kevin, our son-in-law was able to come as well. I just took Caia and Caleb to the airport this afternoon and will be taking Bri, Kevin and Lyla tomorrow for an early flight out of Omaha. Thank goodness that we live only an hour away from a good airport!
Before I forget, I must apologize for not remembering to put radishes in your baskets/bags last week. When we got home from market, we found them in the refrigerator. You will be getting them this week for sure.
As I have mentioned in previous newsletters, the garden is winding down. I have gotten some spaghetti squash from my friend Cliff in Adair. I went over last Sunday to pick it up. Cliff told me to let you know that he thinks the best way to eat spaghetti squash is to bake it, refrigerate it for twenty four hours, scoop out the pulp, add some vegetables like cherry tomatoes, green peppers, radishes and green onions and top it off with your favorite salad dressing. That’s right, prepare and eat it like a pasta salad. I haven’t tried it yet but intend to do so in the near future.
This week’s produce:
Yukon Gold Potatoes
From now until the season ends on October 4th, you will be receiving several kinds of winter squash. As we put them in your bags/baskets, I will include recipes. Many of you probably already have some favorite recipes. If you would like to share them, please feel free to email them to me.
