Welcome to Fall Share! I love the greens of the cool fall months, as well as the continued storage crops. Summer crops are diminishing, with a bit of tomatoes and eggplant still ripening.


The fall season brings us more greens reminiscent of the spring season--this week we have bok choy, lettuce, arugula, and limited collards, kale and tatsoi (Asian spinach). Greens love the cool temps of spring and fall, with a milder flavor in fall as we get cooler temps.

Bok choy is like celery and greens all in one. You can use them like edible spoons, scooping rice or hummus. Chop them and combine with tatsoi and scallions and shredded carrots for an Asian salad or stir-fry. Yes, Great raw or sauteed. And a milder flavor in the cool fall months than in the spring months.

We are finally digging sweet potatoes! A late crop but let's get it out of the ground together. Saturday October 22 at 10am til noon, we will dig sweet potatoes. It is like treasure hunting for all ages. Get your hands in the fresh cool soil. A great even for kids and adults alike. Join us Saturday!
