Week 12 CSA - Thanks for a great season!

Week 12 - Final CSA share-- In your share this week:
quart cherry tomatoes
winter squash: butternut, delicata, and pie pumpkin
quart yellow storage onions
quart red storage onions
1 head garlic
2-3 green pimento peppers (sweet)
2-3 serrano peppers (smaller, cylindrical -- hot, classics for Thai cooking)
1.5 lbs green/purple/mix beans
loose carrots
bunch kale
herbs: lemon basil, genovese basil, bronze fennel, oregano, thyme, sage, parsley
flowers: TONS of statice (white and "sunset mix"), white and lime zinnias, white ageratum (flossflower), craspedia (drumstick flower - yellow balls)
 Bronze fennel and tomatillos
 Toms.  Heads up on these - I have found some burrowing bugs inside, that are immediately apparent when you husk and then halve the tomatillos.  Worth doing before roasting for salsa or stir-fry.
 (These are actually photos from last week's share... No summer squash or cukes this week.)
 Again, from last week.

 Pumpkins and butternut squash this week, hooray!  With tonight's frost, it really feels like fall.
 And after a few unsuccessful plantings of carrots, the final fall planting has finally made it through.  Yum!
 Your special blend of cherry tomatoes.  Good old Sungolds, a delicious red grape hybrid, and black cherries (the darker purple color.)

 One monster-- the first of the season.  BLTN...
Better late than never!  Heirloom tomatoes the size of your head-- wahoo!

My deepest thanks to you all for your participation in this year's Community Supported Agriculture.  It was a pleasure for me to supply you with bountiful local produce, and always a joy to get to visit with you for weekly pickups.  Here's to a great summer, and a beautiful fall!  Thanks!
