Real Life CSA: week 25, produce

This is it! The final week in our spring/summer/fall produce share. Lots of great basics this week.

Can't say no to butternut squash and apple cider this time of year. The turnips will make another delicious puree, and the carrots, onion and potatoes are always eaten up on salads and as sides. They never last long in our house!

We must eat well in our house because we even had a hitchhiker along for the ride this time. This little bugger was fast for a slug!

I love this herb pack for Thanksgiving - rosemary, sage and thyme. The bag smelled delicious.

The last of the apples for this season. Mark looked at them and said he was glad we know how to appreciate these since most people would probably think they were "bad" because of their spots and lumps and bumps. I am glad I haven't had the feeling of a waxy apple on my teeth in a long time!

Happy for one more round of sweet and sour cabbage too. It's a fantastic side for pork, and it also uses some apple cider!

Our winter CSA with Penns Corner Farm Alliance starts the first week of December, so I'm anxious to see what it will bring. (We're switching CSAs for the winter season simply due to pick-up location convenience - our current pick-up spot is not a winter location and the other locations are prohibitive in inclement weather from our house.)
