In the packs this week, we hope to have apples (cortlands); peppers; tomatillos; tomatoes; celery, fennel, or kale; hot peppers; sweet turnips; ginger root; onions; herbs; corn; cabbage, broccoli, or eggplant. The apples and pears are from Danny Davidson in Falmouth. They are not organic, but Danny does not use any sprays after blossom time.
Ginger root and tomatillos: We got a mixed reaction to the ginger root and tomatillos. Some people LOVED them and some didn’t know what to do with them. Scroll to the end of this post to get recipes and ideas for using tomatillos and ginger root.
We named them (from left to right) pumpkin, peach, and stripey. Another customer wanted to name one of them ‘beer can’. We’ll see which one sticks.
Did anyone experience the effects of the recent full moon? It filled the bedroom with intense night light, made the tides rise higher than normal, and caused the harvest to happen. I guess that’s why it is called the harvest moon.
