harvest 16 – October 2 & 4 – spaghetti squash

reminders:

  • Two more weeks of tastey harvests!
  • Next week – Tuesday 9 October, Thursday 11 October
  • Grand finale- Tuesday 16 October, Thursday 18 October
  • Please begin bagging all your produce and leaving black crates these next weeks.
  • If you are interested in Shiitake mushrooms: $12/pound, order up!
  • If you are interested in our farm-raised frozen, pastured pork, contact me!
  • Additional garlic: $7/pound (Shares have received 3.25 pounds garlic to date).

My regular deliveries to our CSA will be winding down in two weeks. We’ll stay in touch in the virtual world, electronically. But face-to-face may be less. The ease with which I can sell direct to you changes. Therefore, if you are interested in shiitake, pastured pork, or additional garlic, please do order-up now. I’ll deliver your order with your usual CSA crate, or we will be in touch. If you’d like to order now, but your budget does not allow, please order up, pay later. We’ll find a way to make it work!

Seems I’ve forgotten the adapter cord for our digital camera. I have some great pictures. Trust me. Just can’t share ’em today. We’ve been planting garlic. Much garlic! Seeding oats for a winter-kill cover crop. Pulling (some) irrigation out. Awaiting rain, still. We’ve had some greatly diverse, variety-laden crates these last few weeks! We hope you’ve enjoyed them as much as we have. We have been missing tomatoes though. I am so happy to see some absolutely spectacular salad mixes – so fresh and delicious!

harvest 16 – recipe

Spaghetti squash have pale yellow skin, oblong shape. The flesh of the squash is stringy like spaghetti! They are often baked or boiled and then the mildly sweet flesh is scooped out and topped with sauce.

To bake: cut in half lengthwise (the long way). Scoop out the seeds and pulp. Place cut halves face down on a baking sheet. Add water to baking sheet surface, about half inch “deep”. Bake 350 degrees – until halves are completely soft and starting to collapse (45 minutes to 1 hour, size/ variety dependent). Remove from oven, Scoop out and top with a sauce! Yum!

  1. Spaghetti Squash was always my grandmother’s favorite! Baked with butter, salt, and pepper. All the yummiest squash in the house was prepared by her. She would have loved cooking with all the vegetables we get in our share. Thanks for another great season.
