When I was harvesting the storage onions this week I came across a beautiful stand of scallions I forgot I had planted! It’s a Japanese variety I have never tried before, purported to be sweeter and more complex than others. Right afterward I saw a post by another local farmer about the delicious Korean Scallion pancakes she was addicted to (check out Ten Chances Farm). I haven’t had a chance to make them so I won’t link to a specific recipe, but if you’re looking for something to do with your scallions this week, I would definitely recommend looking up a recipe! (okay, here it is)
As it is feeling quite Fallish today, I think it is time to harvest some Winter Squash. There will be some beautiful Spaghetti squash and maybe some Acorn coming your way.
Also this week Salad Turnips! Another Japanese variety I can’t get enough of.
Our San Marzano Tomatoes are ready and if anyone is interested in putting some up for Winter. I am offering them by the bushel or half bushel for $50 and $30 respectively. There are limited quantities, so I will do my best to fill orders as they come.
Toronto: This week I would like to go to what I hope will be our regular routine for the rest of the season.
Because I don’t have an afternoon market to attend I would like to move the pick-up time earlier. I will set up a sort of hybrid of our old market set-up from 12-4pm. Everything will be bunched or bagged or in pint containers, but not packed into individual shares. If anyone can’t make it that early or would simply prefer to have their vegetables packed just let me know and those shares will be set aside to be picked up later (ideally before 7pm so my sister doesn’t have to deal with shares that have been left behind after dark!)
If you have any questions or concerns don’t hesitate to email me.
This Week’s Share:
- Salad Turnips
- Cukes, Summer Squash, or Eggplant
