For October 14

Posted 10/11/2016 12:32pm by Emily Best.

Woke up to this morning to a sure sign of the season: FROST. First of the fall. Hard to believe we’re already back to the cold season!  

We’re all getting into the fall spirit here in the office: cooking up butternuts and broccoli, enjoying the crisp flavors of arugula and mizuna, and getting wrapped up in comfy sweaters.  

This weekend is the big festival in McConnellsburg, where I live about 25 minutes from the office. There’s a huge flea market, lots of church breakfasts with homemade pancakes, art displays, a chili cookoff and other events. They even give  the kids a day off school on Friday.  

HIGHLIGHTS:

LONG ISLAND CHEESE PUMPKINS: Farmer Solomon Beiler at Limestone Acres had a bumper crop of Long Island Cheese Pumpkins – sizing at about 10 lb per pumpkin – these heirloom squash have a great flavor (and a fun name, too).  

BROCCOLI: Well, the flush is on: we’re looking to move a LOT of broccoli. Peak season!  

EGGPLANT: This might be the last eggplant of the season!!  

GARLIC: We’ll have garlic through the winter but now’s a great time to start buying – local, organic garlic is worth it.
