Notes from the Field

Food this time of year rings with sweetness...

The carrots are a variety called Nectar, a new storage variety that we are trying in compliment to our usual Bolero...

I have been finding delight in baking them whole.  I wrap them in tinfoil for a little steam convection - the flavors concentrate and become a delicious snack.

You bags hold cleriac, garlic, and Purple Viking, an all-purpose potato.  We had trouble curing the garlic so it hasn't been storing well - hence why some bulbs are so small, and some cloves are broken off of the bulb. This month you receive storage radishes to kick and cleanse colds - when eaten raw the have a strong bite - roasting or putting in a soup temper the flavor.

What's in the Bag

  • Carrots (orange and yellow)
  • Green Meat Radishes
  • Handful Golden Beets
  • Purple Viking potatoes
  • Garlic
  • Pea Shoots

Enjoy the fresh greens!!

Many many thanks!
