CSA pick up September 18th
We had a touch of frost a few nights ago. Just enough to kill a few pumpkin leaves, but that's enough to bring fear into the hearts of most farmers. We know that it's just a matter of time until the frost turns everything in the field to mush. Until that time, we'll enjoy the bounty! Full share to receive at least 7 of the following items. Blue russian potatoes, organic Carrots, organic Corn, organic Green Peppers, organic Heirloom tomatoes, organic Leaf lettuce, organic apples, goodland, spray free, no chemical fertilizer used strawberries, greenhouse grown, no chemical fertilizer or sprays used Half Share to contain at least 5 of the following items Corn, organic heirloom tomatoes, organic leaf lettuce, organic Blue Russian potatoes, organic Strawberries, greenhouse grown, no chemical fertilizer or sprays used Goodland apples, naturally raised. While the tomatoes and peppers are in season, we'll be putting lots of tomatoes and peppers into the csa. If the frost hits soon, you'll start getting squash squash squash. We're holding off until the end to load you all up on squash and storage potatoes and onions! Once again the lovely ladies at Banville and Jones have paired wines with the protein and produce CSAs.
Ribs and charred corn call for something that echoes the smoke, but brings lots of fruit flavour along for the ride. Try the Esencia Chardonnay from Spain ($12.99), a lovely, balanced wine for a Tuesday evening!
If the blend includes roasted carrots and potatoes as well as the ribs and charred corn, a lovely pairing would include an Australian Shiraz, such as the Innocent Bystander Syrah ($23.99). The bright fruit and smooth texture of this Syrah will make a masterpiece out of the meal!
