Number of crops ready and amount of harvest of a given crop will vary throughout the season. We will provide at least six items each week. If we have any crop issues, we will supplement with produce from other local farms. Some weeks will include value added items, such as Jungle Jam, Zucchini Bread, or Fresh Basil Pesto.
"Acorn squash are indigenous to the western hemisphere, so they were not known to Europeans until after the voyages of Columbus. Nevertheless pre-Columbian Americans had been using squash as a food source for as much as eight-thousand years. The acorn squash probably originated in Mexico and Central America. When first discovered, only the seeds were eaten as the flesh was considered too hard to be of value. At the time the flesh was much thinner. It is ironic that today the seeds are very often thrown away or composted."

In August, we shared a recipe for roasted acorn squash. This week we have some really cool dessert ideas for this winter squash. It'll be hard to choose just one! (I may have gotten carried away with the squash recipes...but they are really cool!)
"Brussels sprouts are named after the fact that they were cultivated in Belgium in the 16th century. Knowing this little fact will also help you remember that it’s Brussels sprouts, not Brussel sprouts, and it’s Brussels sprout even if you’re only referring to one sprout. The “B” in Brussels should always be capitalized too." Source: Brussels Sprouts Are More than Just Tiny Cabbages
The recipe below tells how to perfectly roast these little veggies. Make sure to keep scrolling after you read the directions to find "Roasted Brussels Sprouts Variations." There are some very tasty ideas there!
