Farm share week 25

In this week's box:
  • Turnip: 1.25 lbs
  • Butternut squash: 3.25 lbs
  • Green beans: 2 lbs
  • Russet potatoes: 1.75 lbs
  • Sweet potatoes: 1.75 lbs
  • Carrots: 2.25 lbs
  • Onions: 3.75 lbs
  • Cranberries: 0.5 lb
  • Mixed herbs: 0.1 lb
You can definitely tell that an effort was made this week to include items traditionally served at Thanksgiving, as indicated in this week's newsletter (PDF). Although I'm not aware of any dish that calls for 15 onions... Fortunately we're hosting dinner here this year, so I'll be able to use a bunch of this stuff.  For those keeping score at home, I now have 9 squashes in the refrigerator. However, hope is on the horizon -- we hear from our friends that they go through a squash a day at their house because their 1-year-old loves it, so I think they may be getting a Thanksgiving gift from us soon.

This is the last week of the farm share! But I'm planning to write a "reflections" post after Thanksgiving to sum everything up, so this isn't the end of the blog.
