CSA Weel 16 — Meet this week's vegetables

  • Bunch of baby carrots — Our new fall crop of sweet Nantes carrots. Although started at the height of the drought this summer, we gave them plenty of water, and they grew remarkably quickly. Late summer carrots grown in a high-organic matter soil with plenty of moisture are always the best tasting carrots of the season.
  • 1 cabbage — Light and crispy, perfect for a cole slaw.
  • 1 quart French fingerling potatoes.
  • 2 winter squash
  • Fall salad mix
  • 3 rutabagas — These guys keep practically forever in the vegetable crisper. Use as you need them.
  • 1 red and 1 yellow onion
  • 2 heads of garlic
  • 1 bunch of parsley
