csa - and pumpkins??

Today on the way to CSA, we stopped at the farm up the road from us, to see if they had any more spaghetti squash since the one we picked up earlier this week was so tasty. Sure enough, they did have another spaghetti squash - but Rb was very, very excited to see that they also had little pumpkins. I can't believe pumpkins are starting!! It doesn't seem like Fall can really be this close - like Summer can really be drawing to an end... seems it's time to get serious about preserving those veggies for winter-time use!!

Speaking of veggies, it was another great CSA share this week. Cucumbers, zucchini, peppers, lettuce, tomatoes, eggplant, onions, carrots, kale, and (for the first time this year) purple cabbage. Looking forward to lots of salads this week!

I love purple cabbage, so much sweeter than the "regular" kind I've found. Winter squash/pumpkins already? Wow. Your CSA share looks a lot like mine this week (minus the tomatoes) - delicious stuff in store, I'm sure....

We had a choice this week in the share of purple or green cabbage - I went with the purple as I agree, it has a wonderful flavor! It is pretty amazing to see the winter squash arriving already - seems like summer just started and now here comes fall!!
