Share items for August 11th

The good news is that so-called hurricane Earl was barely a rainstorm on the East End, so our fields of lettuce, fall greens, and tomatoes were spared what we expected to be a thrashing. We hope everyone had a good labor day weekend and now we’re gearing up for fall and the “fall festival” season at the farm. You’ll start seeing the appearance of winter squashes in your share, we grow quite a number of very different ones. Over the next two months you will get: butternut, buttercup, kabocha, red kuri, sweet dumpling, acorn, and other squashes. You can take a minute to check out pictures of the abovementioned ones online so you’ll be all set to ID your squash when you get it! Some varieties are very sweet, some less so (use in soup or pie or add more maple syrup when you bake it!). The good news is that we had a good squash year this summer, unlike last year when it was so wet and the various mildews triumphed.
