Harvest Update Week 19

Posted 10/16/2017 1:11pm by John and Aimee Good.

First frost warning . . .

The first frost warning, for patchy and scattered frosts, is tonight. We  been busily harvesting all day to bring in as many sensitive crops as possible, all the peppers, eggplant, tomatoes, and lettuce that we can.

A new crop in this week's share is Hakurei turnips. You may remember then from the spring. They are a mild flavored turnip, which is very versatile. You can slice them raw for salads or snacking, or saute them with the greens or in stir-fry, or roast them in the oven (my favorite!) or use them for soup. Here you can see bunches of turnips, just harvested, prior to washing. They are a very nice white when washed.  Check the recipe page for ideas!

THE HARVEST: Your Share may include the following items(subject to change):


Salad mix

Green or Savoy cabbage

Hakurei Turnips

Butternut Squash

Red or yellow onions




Sweet bell & Italian peppers


Coming Soon:  more leeks, celeriac, parsnips, red cabbage

Upick at the farm: may be done after tonight - must wait & see
