For Tuesday October 4th

Posted 9/30/2016 11:59am by Emily Best.

Without Emily in the office, yesterday was a little more hectic for Natalie and me (Taylor) than a normal sales day. Even so, we do hope that she is enjoying Cleveland! Today, I am trying to help Natalie finish the availability list, by helping with the coversheet.   You can finally put a face to my emails and calls; the picture (to the left) is of me from about 3 years ago, when I worked on Wollam Gardens in north-central Virginia. I am not working in the fields very often now, but luckily I still get to help in the fields two days a week at New Morning Farm!  

HIGHLIGHTS:  

BABY GREENS: We have a good number of baby greens coming in from our growers, which will include baby broccoli raab (rapini), baby Siberian kale, and baby mixed kale. Also, we will have plenty of sweet and spicy in the coming weeks!  

ROMA TOMATOES: Even though our supply of mixed heirloom tomatoes is dwindling, we still have a good supply of Roma tomatoes, which are an excellent sauce tomato. I have not had any chili this year, but it is definitely feeling like it is time. I am planning to have a big cooking day for myself tomorrow, so maybe I should be making chili as well.  

WINTER SQUASH:  Our growers are starting to call with larger quantities of butternut squash, as well as a few other varieties of winter squash. Honestly, I am not a good cook at all, but I may have two pots going tomorrow morning. I may have to try my hand at a butternut, carrot, ginger soup. This cooler, rainy weather is helping to put soup on my brain.  

NON-ORGANIC, ALL NATURAL LOCAL CHICKEN EGGS: AVAILABLE IN MEDIUM, LARGE AND EXTRA-LARGE, 15 DOZEN BULK.   PLEASE CALL TIM DERSTINE AT HARES VALLEY GROWERS AT 814 448 2784 FOR GREAT EGG PRICES.
