Our farm's first fall frost came this morning. It sweetens the greens and turns the page. Because we have most of our warm season crops in tunnels, we will still have them at market, but consider this a warning. Get 'em, get 'em.

Fresh From the Field-
All Manner of Deliciousness
Cone Cabbage: the most tender and sweet
Savoy Leaf Cabbage
Onions: Red and Yellow
Peppers: Bells and Shishitos
Potatoes: Red and white
Daikon (Purple and Red!)
Wintersquash! Festival, acorn, and a few others. Should we call it fall squash?
Parsley (Curly and Flat Leaf!)
Recipe: About Baby Ginger
It is so thin skinned you don’t have to peel it and so smooth, it slices like butter. The root (technically a rhizome) is delicious. Juicier than the more mature rhizomes typically found in stores. It is delightful added to stir fry -- or try it my favorite way -- minced raw on yogurt or ice cream. The stalks and leaves can be used to make tea or infuse rice with a taste of ginger. Just slice them diagonally, steep, and enjoy!
How to store:
Fresh Ginger should be kept in the fridge. The stalks should be removed and used within a few days or dried for later use. If you do not plan on using the rhizome within a week, the best way to store it is in the freezer. To use it, just remove it, grate the quantity needed, and return it to the freezer! Enjoy fresh ginger all year long!
