The Produce has been refreshed at Bee Healthy–

New items this week are 1# bag of a Carrot Mix–Yellowstone yellow, Deep Purple and Purple Haze, and orange Sugarsnax.  More Butternut and Acorn squashes as well as the other varieties, 3# bag of organically raised Potatoes including Fingerlings, Red and Green Cabbage, Onions, Fresh Celery, Brussels sprout stalks, Purple topped Turnips, and Daikon Radish Pack.

Take this opportunity to make soup stock for winter cooking:  celery with all the leaves, onions…add your own garlic and herbs, salt and peppercorns, or carrots, too.  Great suggestions on the internet!  Cook and strain.  Can be canned, froze, or kept in quart jars in the fridge if used within a couple of weeks.  Adds flavor to soups, gravies, and sauces.  Now is the time to do this while the celery is fresh–It will not be available beyond Mid-November.

Look at the past post on Brussels Sprouts–a nutritional power house and much better Fresh on the stalk than frozen or bagged in the store.  Instructions on cooking with recipe suggestions.  We are harvesting this as needed.  It is very winter hardy, but is nearing the end of the 1200 plants we started in March, planted in June, and began harvesting the end of September!  We eat these in season!!
