After much debate, mostly centered around whether I’d still be too busy to make use of so many vegetables, we signed up for the Late Fall share at Farmer Dave’s. We were a little hesitant because it is a full-sized share rather than the small one we got over the summer. My love for squash and root vegetables, however, eventually swayed us to sign up. Today was the first week and I. Am. So. Glad. We. Signed. Up!!!!
There is so much great variety this week. I’m cheating and giving you just a thumbnail of the whole bunch because the only picture I took is blurry. Oops! I was cooking a quick dinner after getting home from the last soccer game of the season (I’m assistant coaching JV girls’ soccer this year) and apparently didn’t look at the image carefully enough.
I know this was the best decision. Especially because we got our first harvest of my all time favorite veggie…drum roll please…
I am going to let the rest of these late fall beauties speak for themselves. I can’t wait to see what we get next week!
Carrots and beets (further confirming just how much of a nerd I am, I just noticed how creepy that beet root is and thought to myself, ‘That looks just like the front paw of the aye-aye, a funny little lemur)
What is your favorite late fall vegetable?
