- Winter Kohlrabi
- Mini Daikon Radish - pink and purple
- Butternut Squash
- Green Cabbage
This penultimate CSA share is a dense one, loaded with veggies that will store for weeks (leeks, carrots), or months (butternut, celeriac, daikon, cabbage, kohlrabi). The only two things that you need to eat soonish are your kale and head lettuce (this, by the way, is your final little head of lettuce for 2023, after seven straight months of harvest - thanks be to a productive lettuce year!). Next week's share will also be laden with more storage crops, in hopes of stocking you up so that you might still be carving off a VF cabbage come January (yes, these late season cabbages are lunker-esque)! If you're having a hard time getting through them I highly recommend roasting wedges at high heat on a sheet pan: Roasted Cabbage Wedges. A little olive oil, salt, and a 450 degree oven will take cabbage to the next level, turning it into a mouth-watering, warm winter comfort food.
Next week will be our 28th and final CSA delivery for the season:
- Last pickup for Farm and Coos Bay members: Wednesday, December 6th
- Last pickup for Port Orford and Bandon members: Saturday, December 9th
AND, if you find yourself headed into an end-of-CSA seasonal depression (wah, no more VF veg until next June!), don't despair because.....
We have a limited number of Winter CSA shares available, sign up now to secure your spot!
This winter we are also delighted to be offering UpsideDown Egg Shares, which you can sign up for and have delivered with your Winter CSA box.
If you live in Coos Bay, we are considering the possibility of adding a winter Coos Bay CSA pickup option at Coos Head Food Co-op (Wednesdays, as usual). If you like that idea, let us know via email so we can determine if we have enough interest to justify the drive to Coos Bay this winter.
I'm headed out the door to do one last scurry around the farm before the evidently endless rainy forecast settles in on us, but you'll hear from me again next week in our final 2023 Beet Box newsletter. In the meantime, go clean those gutters, quick!
