Circle S delivery Monday, September 25 and Wednesday, September 27

“How did it get so late so soon?”
Dr. Seuss

Hard to believe the season is almost over!  This is our last full week, we started on a Wednesday this year.  We will end Monday, October 2nd.

Farm News:  However – I will have more things coming in until the end of October.  If you would like to extend your CSA for three more weeks, I will be delivering and at Main Street on Wednesdays – and you can receive 3 more CSA shares on October 11, October 18 and October 25.  More greens, broccoli, cabbage, beets etc.

The cost is $100 for a 3 week extension of veggies.  If you decide your in – just leave $100 in your bucket or bring to the market.  If your tired of greens, and cooking, and washing produce….not to worry.  I will bring your last share in a paper bag and you can hang it up for the year!!

What’s in the bucket:  It’s a special bucket this week because my mother in law made pear honey!  Delicious stuff she makes out of the pears on her tree – but beware, it is not sugar-free:)  Perfect on a biscuit with butter, or on a peanut butter and jelly sandwich…..divine!

So….pear honey, sweet potatoes (white and orange), arugula, kale, summer squash, peppers, carrots, radishes, Napa cabbage, cilantro.

What’s at market:  Napa cabbage, lettuce, mustard greens, turnip roots, summer squash, carrots, beets, spinach, arugula, mesclun, cilantro, parsley.  Circle S Beef:  ground beef.

I really enjoy Napa cabbage raw.  Following is a nice recipe for a salad.  You could also put it in a rice paper wrapper and dip it in peanut sauce (I just mix peanut butter with a little milk to thin it and a little cayenne pepper).  Or dip it in the dressing below.

INGREDIENTS:

SALAD:

3 cups torn Napa (Chinese) cabbage
1 cup (1/8-inch) julienne-cut yellow squash
1/2 cup (1/8-inch) julienne-cut purple bell pepper
1/2 cup (1/8-inch) julienne-cut green or other bell pepper
1/2 cup shredded carrot
1/2 cup chopped fresh cilantro
1/4 cup thinly sliced green onions
1/4 cup grated radishes
1 minced seeded jalapeno pepper
DRESSING:

3 tablespoons freshly squeezed lime juice
1 tablespoon fish sauce (optional)

DIRECTIONS:

To prepare the salad, combine the salad ingredients in a large bowl.
To prepare the dressing, combine dressing ingredients in a small bowl and whisk together until sugar dissolves.
Drizzle dressing over salad and toss well. Serve immediately.

Happy eating – thank you all so much for participating in the CSA this year.  It keeps us going – you don’t know how much it means to our farm.
