Week #20

Dear CSA Member

Perfect fall weather and perfect fall crops this week in the CSA shares.  New photos on the farm website, Farm News, https://www.stoneledge.farm/on-the-farm/farm-blog.  The daikon patch seemed to be at the edge of the rainbow.  Beautiful sun and clouds across the Catskill Mountains with our fields in the foreground.  Take a look.

Daikon, Beets with Greens, Butternut Winter Squash, Red Onions, Potatoes, fall Lettuces, Red Cherriette Radishes, Mizuna and Red Mustard.   A treat to have a fresh lettuce salad once again.  The fall planting of lettuces, Mizuna and Mustard are always milder and sweet tasting.  Chop the Mustard and Mizuna and try adding to your salad. The Red Mustard is stunning with the deep purple color on one side of the leaf and green on the other.  Amazing.  The Red Ace Beets are two vegetables in one bunch.  Use the greens separately and then the root.

Daikon recipes have been added to the website Recipe section .  If you have a favorite please send it to the farm so we can share your recipe as well.

Many items have been added to the CSA online Marketplace for bulk orders.  The beekeeper has just delivered freshly drawn honey in 2 pound jars.  He was not sure just how much he would be able to gather but there was a very good supply.  The fall honey is dark and rich.

Enjoy the bounty.
Deborah for everyone at Stoneledge Farm

Yellow Potatoes-2 pounds
Oak Leaf Lettuce-2 heads  You will need to wash the lettuce leaves.  We have given them a dip post harvest rinse. Easiest way is to take the leaves from the stem end and rinse, drain and rinse again moving the loose leaves in the water.
Cherriette Radishes-1 bunch   Certainly with a fall rustic look as the shapes continue to change.  Flavor is sweet and the radishes crunchy.
Red Mustard-1 bunch
Mizuna-1 bunch
