Squash squash squash squash.  T'is the season for squash.

This week whether you have a full or half share you'll be getting lots of beautiful squash.  Roma tomatoes grace both the full and half share bags, so it's time for saucing.  And the full shares this week will get the special treat of purple potatoes!  Very exciting.  We had requested enough purple potatoes for both shares throughout the full season, but alas, too dry of a summer meant that yields were not what they should have been.

Next week you can all expect enough heritage pumpkin to make several pumpkin pies for your Thanksgiving meal.

To prepare your red Kuri or Acorn squash, simply cut in half, scoop out the seeds, place butter in the cavity. Place the squash shell side down in a pan with a half inch of water in it.  Bake at 350 until tender.  Scoop the flesh out of the shell and mix with a little brown sugar, maple syrup or honey as your families tastes dictate.
