December Veggies

Well, we’ve just about done it – harvested, stored and distributed our vegetables into the middle of December! This has been no small feat; the challenges of “winter growing” are quite different than those of the regular season. I’ve enjoyed the challenges immensely and continue to be excited about creating a year-round CSA at Moraine. Once my fingers have warmed up and I’ve recovered from the deep chill that’s got into my bones, I hope to blog about Moraine Farm’s first ever extended-season share. Stay tuned.

Please remember to come and get your last extended-season share today!

Today’s share includes:
Popcorn
Carrots
Parsnips – looking a something new to do with parsnips? Try this Sautéed Parsnip and Carrot recipe
Sweet potatoes — Apprentice Steve Pecci sent me this Roasted Sweet Potato recipe yesterday. Looks really good.
Winter radishes
Shallots — Caramelized Shallots are a spectacular treat.
Storage onions
Kale
Spinach (Yahoo!!)
Cabbage

Shallots, $3/pound – These are one of my favorite holiday gifts- both to give and to receive.
