Share Items: Oct 3 & 6

Veggie Share
1 lb carrots
1 bunch arugula
.25 lb mesclun
1 bu collards
1 lg or 2 small bok choi
.5 lb string beans, green or yellow
2 peppers
1 lb potatoes
1 bu Radishes
1 head Broccoli
1 butternut squash

Fruit share:  2 lbs Asian Pears AND 3 lbs apples. NOTE: Asian Pears don’t really soften much when ripe. They are ripe when they smell good, and are still firm. If you let them sit too long, they will go straight to rotten. Yes, a challenge, but still crunchy and tasty at the right time. Great sliced with some cheese!
Flower share: zinnias, sunflowers, celosia, cosmos, etc.
Egg share: ½ dozen pastured eggs

Farm News: Thanks to all who came out to the Garlic Festival! It was great meeting some of you for the first time, seeing longtime CSA members who helped out (and entered) the Garlic Iron Chef and Garlic Eating Contests, and those who made the long trek out from NYC!  Collards and beans are loving the fall weather. This year’s collards are so huge, they remind us of elephant ears! Send in your interesting collard recipes, because you’ll be getting a lot of them this fall.
