Hi folks!

Elliott & Grandma taking a break from the dairy.

We’re baaaaaack! I hope you are all ready to get the season started. We are :). I’m going to cut it short today, as we’ve been up since 2:30 a.m. to get to our 6:30 a.m. flight to Boston from Barrington (with enough time to drop off the rental car, take the shuttle & check in a bag). We got back to the farm, ate breakfast with my parents & just finished our farm walk to see what we would have available for members for our first week of the Fall season. I figured I’d better go ahead & write the email now while my brain seems to still be working on the 45 minutes of sleep or so I got last night ;). Sooooo, to get to it, here’s what you’ll see in your shares this week:

– eggplant

– tomatoes

– okra

– sweet peppers

– chiles

– kale

– tatsoi or bok choy (this may be in the form of a “pick one” or it may be one or the other, depending on the day of the week of your pick up)

– lettuce

Large shares will also see:

– dandelion greens (these are legit – they’re not the chicory of last year)

– senposai (this is sometimes referred to as Asian collards, but I think this must be only because of their appearance because they are tender & taste nothing like collards, to me at least – they are super tasty regardless) 🙂

– French breakfast radishes

Can you believe it’s Fall already!?!?! Yummy yummy green goodness! I’m so happy to have them all back :). & I’m not tired of peppers or tomatoes or eggplant yet either, so I’m happy for that too.

We’ll see you Tuesday (at Five Points 4:30-6:30pm), Wednesday (here at the farm 4-7pm) & Saturday at WWFM (8-noon). Have a fantastic week!


P.S. Please send along any recipes you think would utilize these ingredients well & I will share them with everyone. I will also work on finding some good ones for you for some of these items. & those of you who are newbies, don’t worry. I’ll be at the pick up sites to talk about these items & what you can do with them. I know you may not have heard of some of these things, much less have cooked them before.

​Elliott loves cows, as lots of you know. He seriously woke up one morning & said “Moo” before he even opened his eyes. When I asked, “What did you say?” He replied with, “Go see cows!” This kid.
