Almost The End

I am not believing that next week will be our last delivery week.  Say it ain't so Joe!

Our boxes are still being filled to overflowing even with a long and heavy frost.  The growing season is coming to an end and I am sad to see it end.

I am  looking forward to a big skillet of fried potatoes tonight. And sweet potato fries tomorrow night.

Recipe Of The Week: Pineapple Banana Bread

Pineapple Banana Bread

3 c flour
2 cups of sugar
1 teaspoon of salt

2 cups of mashed bananas

Combine dry ingredients in a bowl.  Add the rest and mix well.  Put into greased bread pans and bake at 350 degrees  for 65 minutes.

Boxes Are Still Heavy

kale, lettuce, garlic, sweet potatoes, peppers, squash, cabbage, garlic, turnips

It is hard to believe that there are just four weeks left of the Fall Share.  We can tell because the skies are so blue and work has begun to slow down a bit.  That means that it gives us time to catch up on all the jobs that have been on the back burner for awhile.  The main concern now is protecting the remaining vegetables in case of a hard frost.

Broccoli has done very well this year.  But cauliflower is another story.  They have no idea what happened to the crop.  The heads are still very small and there is a threat of frost which would it it all for them...the baby cabages.  They are working on the problem to make sure it is fixed before next fall.  

Recipe Of The Week: Pinto Skillet

Pinto Skillet

Take your desires amount of hamburger and fry it with some chopped onions.  Add cooked pinto beans, heavy tomato sauce. taco seasoning chili powder, garlic salt, and brown sugar.  Simmer for 10 minutes.  Add fresh peppers and tomato chunks.  Serve with sour cream and nachos or wrap in flour tortillas.

A Note From Rue....

I talked to John this morning and when he checked the crops in the field they only had minor damage from the frost so we should have fresh green produce for at least one more week. For this week you should have sweet potatoes, kale, garlic, lettuce, cabbage and possibly broccoli,  potatoes and green peppers.

Still Lots of Vegetable To Be Had

I am amazed at how full the boxes are.  Still jammed with all kinds of green goodness!

Because of the weather and no frost the field vegetables are still growing like gangbusters.  The lettuce that is in the Hi-Tunnel is almost ready to harvest.  There are still plenty of potatoes, sweet potatoes and winter squash for another 6 weeks.

Please remember to be respectful of the drop houses...please flatten your boxes and place them neatly on the porch or driveway.

Recipe Of The Week: Oven Beef Stew

Oven Beef Stew

2 pounds of cubed beef
1 chopped onion
3 sliced carrots
2 diced potatoes
1/2 cup of tomato juice
1 teaspoon of salt
1 Tablespoon of sweetener
2 Tablespoons of tapioca

Bake in a covered dish at 350 degrees for one hour.  Reduce heat to 250 degrees and continue baking for 3 1/2 to 4 hours.
