Posted on November 16th, 2020
The beans in your shares this week are called Jacob's Cattle beans because a handful of them looks like a herd of cattle grazing on a hillside. They can be left in their pods until you're ready to use them, or you can shell them and leave them in a basket to dry. Just don't seal them in a plastic bag... read more »

We're switching our primary greens to spinach and kale this week, but arugula and mesclun are still available for adding or swapping.

We're picking the first spaghetti squashes this week. Some of them may need to yellow-up for a couple of days on your kitchen counter. There's also a variety of squash called buttercup which has a sweet note and should be prepared the same way as acorn squash.  This is the second-to-last week of... read more »

You may be tempted to decorate your table with it, but underneath that unusual skin you'll find the same delicious meat you expect from a green acorn. The other new item is organic popcorn, still on the cob.... read more »
