Field Notes: September is one of the most colorful months on the farm. From the bright hues of peppers and tomatoes to the deep orange/yellow/green colors of the winter squash harvest, the beauty of the melding of summer and fall is all around us in the fields and in the packing shed where the produce is washed, sorted and packed for orders.


Box Notes: Remember to try out the beet greens as well as the roots. The greens are tender and succulent, with a flavor similar to spinach. Now that the nighttime temperatures are cooling down, we are featuring a fresh lasagna recipe in this week’s newsletter for your dinnertime culinary delight. On the horizon, in about one month: carrots, winter squash, spinach, and little gem lettuce.
