CSA Share: November 19

Parsnips will be showing up in this week's share. Photo from Flickr by Matthew Folley.

We’re at the time we all knew would sadly come: The last CSA share of the season. But there’s a few special treats to mark the occasion …

From Kristen: “Each year I try to plant a couple hard-to-grow crops I didn’t the year before. It’s a HTG crop if it a) has to be in the ground for longer than 60 days; b) takes up a lot of space and c) is really picky about its growing conditions.

This year I wanted to grow enough cabbage and broccoli for a fall harvest — and parsnips despite how long they take to mature. Luckily, we had success for both crops! Granted, some of the cabbages and parsnips are tiny because they were planted in beds that get some shade. Please enjoy this last harvest. I hope some of you are able to use your share in some holiday cooking. I’ll be making mashed parsnips and potatoes!”
