We’ve finally had our first frost the night of November 6, which put an end to any warm weather crops… fortunately we plan ahead with lots of cold-hardy greens, which keep producing despite being frozen at times. For those of you with kids, one of our favorite recipes is macaroni and cheese with broccoli – a great way to work those veggies into some standard comfort food. Fennel is great slow-roasted with plenty of olive oil in a closed dish in the oven (after about 45 mins to an hour, it gets soft and sweet), while you’re roasting those winter squashes.
We’re looking forward to celebrating the harvest at two CSA celebrations, one east and one west. On Sat Nov 19 from 7pm-midnight (!) we invite all our CSA members, friends and family (and anyone from anyplace else who wants to make the trip) to join us at the farm in our processing barn/dance hall, for an end of season “We Did It” celebration. Email firstname.lastname@example.org with questions and to RSVP (no charge).
On Sat Nov 12 from 7-9 pm, there will be a CSA potluck harvest dinner at Greenpoint’s Church of the Messiah, 129 Russell St; southside of McGolrick Park. RSVP to email@example.com. We won’t be in attendance personally (unfortunately) this year, but this is always a great event, and chance to meet other CSA members.
