2017 November CSA Newsletter – Week #3

By Caty Poole | November 29, 2017

Notes from the Farm Temperatures got down to 18 degrees on Friday/Saturday, which gave a frost burn to some greens, or put an abrupt end to other greens growing outside, while sweetening up some of the hardier roots, such as carrots.  The sweetness increases in the carrots as a result of starches converting to sugars.  This conversion is a survival tactic for the carrots, as it prevents the water in their cells from freezing.  We think these frost-sweetened carrots are the best of the season, along with those we harvest in March that spend the winter in the soil, and are pulled out once the snow clears.  Enjoy them now, or save them for the later, as the bit of soil on the carrots will help them store in your refrigerator for months.  Along with these delicious carrots we’ll have a mix winter squash, potatoes, onions, garlic, turnips, broccoli and greens. Thank you for taking part in our November CSA, and have a great Thanksgiving! Best, Farmer Steve and our Farmers: Adam, Alyssa, Kayla, Sara, TW and Tyler Registration for our 2018 CSA is open!  CSA registration forms will be available at the farm or you can download, fill them out and bring them to the…
