Tomorrow is Farm Day so I should probably get around to the final week's share...

Week 20

  • 2 Delicata Squash
  • 2 Butternut Squash
  • 4 lbs Parsnips
  • 4 lbs Purple Top Turnips
  • 10 lbs Red Gold Potatoes
  • 4 roots Celeriac
  • 8 Mutsu Apples
    = 38? lbs (I can't remember if I actually weighed it)

+ Bread share: Flax Montague (whatever that is, bit damn, it was good!)

Bonus veggies from neighbors:
+ Several stalks Brussels Sprouts
+ 2 Daikon
+ 1 large Kohlrabi

I made the awesome celeriac soup. Because awesome. I might have to get more celeriac. I always say that. Also made assorted other soups, shredded salad, etc. And plenty of roasted brussels sprouts. Nom nom.

Farm share season is over and now it's cold. It wasn't cold on Saturday, though, which was pretty amazing and we spent the day outside. Then yesterday, I made kaddo because it was perfect weather for the oven to be on for many hours. Which reminds me that the leftover syrup is in the freezer for the oil to solidify for easier removal and I should go deal with that.

Also made two quarts of pickled beets last week, which was a nice way to use up most of the beets. Then DD figured out how to cool rabe so it's yummy. Woohoo!

I want to make another apple crisp with almond topping, except we do such a good job of eating the share apples, I may have to go out and buy more. Definitely doing celery root soup, because it's too delicious not to.

  • 2 bunches Beets
  • 2 bunches Arugula
  • 2 bunches Rabe
  • 2 bunches Celery Root
  • 2 bunches Fennel
  • 2 Butternut Squash
  • 4 lbs Parsnips
  • 6 lbs Mutsu Apples
    = 32#

[Up-to-the-minute squash count: 7]

  • 2 bunches Japanese Turnips (+greens)
  • 2 bunches Baby Carrots
  • 2 bunches Arugula
  • 2 bunches Celery Root
  • 2 bunches Leeks
  • 2 Sugar Pumpkins
  • 2 Buttercup Squash
  • 2 Acorn Squash

Finally pick-up of the season. Field harvest will be in a few weeks, and then we'll be into the months of actually having space in the fridge. It's been a great share year and I'm amazed at how much I was able to preserve, given how hard it's been to manage to do any of that at all. My only real complaint is way too many green peppers. Looking forward to next year.

(That weight seems too low but it's too late to try again. The scale has a low battery so could be off.)

Oops, Week 20 was in October and I somehow never got around to posting this. Better late than never and all that.

List back here )

Dried: maitake
Froze: arugula pesto, vegetable stock
Canned: applesauce
Fermented: sauerkraut, ginger carrots

As always post-share season, Steve invited us to come and harvest from his fields. Due to scheduling issues (and also being sick), I unfortunately had to miss that, but I did send along some apfelwein with Mark and Jonathan, who did get out there both to help and to pick.

Things they brought back include lots of pumpkins, butternuts, lettuce, spinach, carrots, turnips, beets, leeks, broccoli, chard, and whatever else I'm not thinking of. All together, several metric buttloads worth of food. Yay! It's sad for the season to be over, but I will be working by way through these fall crops for many more weeks, which is a nice bonus. I also still have some things to harvest from the garden, including kale and carrots.

I will try to recap the 2009 farm share season in a separate post at some point and also recap my harvest/preserving season in general. There is still plenty to be done with the latter, though, and more evil plans being formed. I mean good. Very good.

Meanwhile, could anyone out there accompany me to CostCo along with a membership card in the next day or two? I can potentially ply you with various goodies.
