Last Week from the Farm (November 19)

We missed our Tuesday pickup this week and were desperate not to miss the last week of the CSA distribution. Luckily, our last minute call was answered and we were allowed to do a Thursday pickup. It was a good one:

1/2 pound arugula
3 pounds cauliflower
2 heads lettuce
1 bunch radishes
1 bunch scallions
1 bunch carrots
1 bunch mustard greens
1 bunch kale
8 pounds of potatoes (!)
1 bulb garlic
probably something else, can't remember

Also, we were told that there would be a bonus broccoli distribution, either this week or next. I love it! It is nice to stretch the season out a little longer and have one last visit to the farm (hopefully during daylight hours this time). And we've been in the happy position of not having to spend much at the store, so it is also a little sad for the pocketbook once the season finally comes to an end and the grocery expenditures rise in time for the holiday season. On the plus side: without a fridge full CSA veggies languishing in the fridge, we will be able to buy things like fennel and endive from the market, guilt-free!

Hi Ritu,
I've been working on developing my own wet levain starter. I am trying many different recipes. Also, working with a poolish for some breads. Go to this website for the best baking equipment and supplies., they sell the commercial fleischmann's yeast. I really love the Jeffrey Hamelman's bread book. Good luck, lora
