Farm Baby

We’re back!

It’s been many weeks, but Dan and I are back with our Week 20 update.  Fall is finally starting to show its face around here; the weather is colder and today is a very dark rainy day.  We have had the lights on in the house since we woke up this morning.  We are still getting used to living in the soft yellow electric light rather than in the bright light of the sunshine.

The rain kept Ginny away from the farm today (which is too bad because she loves seeing the goats), but staying away from the farm didn’t keep her from exploring the vegetables we brought home.  She liked the coolness of the wet leaves on the celery.

And she liked the taste of them.

What we got this week:

a stalk of Brussels Sprouts
5 green Peppers, 1 yellow pepper, and 1 hot pepper
2 Leeks
3 lbs of Rutabaga
3 Celeriac, plus some Celery still attached
1 purple Lettuce
1 Tomato
1 Eggplant
Cilantro
4 lbs Potatoes
1 Butternut Squash
1 Delicata Squash
1 Kohlrabi

I love root vegetables more than most things, so I am looking forward to cooking with the rutabaga and celariac.  

This week the farm is having a potluck harvest celebration (with an apple cider press!) and I’m trying to figure out what to make for it.  Suggestions?
