Have you noticed? It’s fall now. More than just fall — it’s October, which brings with it all its own unique sights and glories. Brilliant foliage. Spooky decorations. Fall harvests. The wrapping up of another CSA season. Yes! Next week (October 18) is our final week of the 2018 season! Have you signed up for 2019 yet? You can do so at pick-up this week, or drop me a quick email.
But in the meantime, for this week’s newsletter, I thought I’d share with you some of the very fall sights we’ve been seeing here on the farm and out and about:
One more week, everyone! Enjoy this week’s vegetables!
Your farmers, Katie & Casey Kulla

Meet this week’s vegetables:
- Delicata squash
- Spaghetti squash
- Pie pumpkins
- Peppers — Sweet and hot
- Beets — Time to make “root parade”! What is root parade? That’s when you line up all the “roastable” vegetables (heavy on the roots) in your house on your counter (making a parade) and then chop them up and roast them together! You might just call this roasted fall vegetables. We call it root parade. Beets are a great ingredient, along with delicata squash, carrots, potatoes, and onions!
