Veggie Feast September 27, 2017

Notes from the Farm

This is the last week of Veggie Feast.  We have enjoyed growing produce for your table! In front of the cooler will be an assortment of winter squash of which you may choose.  We will keep restocking it throughout the day.  Also featured are Jack O Lanterns!  For those of you that enjoy the festivities of Halloween please choose one or two.  If you don’t see one you like you can venture out to the “Great Pumpkin Patch” and haul one out yourself.  Beware that some are quite heavy!

Thanks for your dedication to eating local food, and supporting Leon’s farm habit.


This Week’s Veggie Feast

September 27 Veggie Feast

New This Week:

Sunshine Kabocha

Sunshine turns into just about everyone’s favorite winter squash.  Bright and cheery on the outside, and bright and cheery on the inside too.  These hold up fairly well as a storage squash.

Yellow storage onions

Although we harvested these several weeks ago they are taking their sweet time to dry.  So, not only do you get the onions you also are the lucky recipient of baling twine!  Hang these storage onions in a cool, dry place that will not freeze and they will cure.  You can use them right away too.

Honeycrisp apples

Honeycrisp apples were developed by the University of Minnesota.  Every time I go visit my family my brother mentions this.  Maybe it’s some sort of state pride, or maybe it’s consolation that even though it’s hot and humid, or really, really cold and humid, or the bottom of his car is a completely rusted due to all the salt they dump on the roads to melt the ice at least they’ve made a great apple.  I cannot argue with him, it is a great apple, (gracias U of MN).  These particular apples were harvested in Corvallis, MT.

What’s not new, but still Fresh!:  Red onions, red cabbage, Brussels sprouts, parsley, carrots, winter squash assortment, pepper assortment.
