Cleaning Up

Yesterday I picked up the farm share; next week is the last week of the season. It was due to frost last night and out where they are it probably did. Consequently, they said we could take unlimited tomatillos and tomatoes. I brought home 1.5 gallons of plum tomatoes which are currently in the freezer waiting to become sauce. I also picked almost two pounds of tomatillos and a few more serrano peppers in order to make a last batch of salsa verde (4.5 cups). There was also a nice selection of winter squashes, rutabagas, radishes, fall greens, onions, potatoes, carrots, garlic, sweet potatoes, and cabbage. Out in the fields, in addition to the tomatoes and tomatillos there were raspberries, other hot peppers, parsley, cilantro, kale, and flowers. Some of the fields have already been plowed over. The other week I was pleased to see the Boston Area Gleaners were by to help harvest the fields before the produce became unusable. Really, this farm has something for everyone and I'm so glad to have been a participant in the CSA for nine seasons! I miss the fresh produce and the trips to the fields every winter and I look forward to the new season every spring.
