As many of you have discovered we are now featuring fall produce from both my sister’s farm in the foothills, Burgeson Family Farm, and from our farm. My sister, Dayna, and her husband, Adrian, grow wonderful Satsuma mandarins which will be here before Thanksgiving but they also grow a variety of citrus and unusual fruits. This week we have; Kaffir limes, Bearss limes, key limes, quince, Fuyu persimmons and pomegranates from their farm.
We have tomatoes, tomatillos, melons, butternut squash, spaghetti squash, potimarron squash, sucrine du berry squash, golden and green acorn squash, baby blue hubbard squash, New England pie pumpkins, Jack-o-lantern pumpkins, Tuscan (dinosaur) kale, Winterbor kale, Portugese Trochunda kale, Swiss chard, Marvielle de 4 seasons lettuce, Gentelina lettuce, a small amount of summer squash including Trombetta de Albenga and eggs from our small flock of pasture raised, organically fed chickens.
