Farm share week 24

In this week's box:
  • Acorn squash: 1.5 lbs
  • Wheat berries: 2 lbs
  • Golden beet: 0.75 lb
  • Cabbage: 1.75 lbs
  • Collard greens: 0.75 lb
  • Cucumber: 0.75 lb
  • Apples: 1.5 lbs
  • Carrots: 2.75 lbs
  • Potatoes: 1.75 lbs
  • Grape tomatoes: 1 pt
 Rats, I got another bag of wheat berries and I haven't used any of the bag I got over the summer! Time to start making some grain-based salads...

The inclusion of an avocado in last week's share, and the cucumber and grape tomatoes in this week's share, indicates that once again the farm is supplementing what it produces with produce obtained through exchange with farms further south. And there's only one week left in the farm share! After next week, a winter-spring program starts up, but I decided not to participate in that (it's a lot more money, and to be honest I'm looking forward to having a break from the constant onslaught of vegetables!). See this week's newsletter (PDF) for more details on the winter-spring program.

Starting to have a bit of a situation here with carrots and squash -- I'm now up to 7 squashes in the fridge (2 butternut and 5 acorn), and at least 5 pounds of carrots. I had to make an additional "crisper" out of a large tupperware to store all the carrots. Fortunately both carrots and squash last for quite a while in the fridge...
