Week 8: GORP - Wintergreen Foods style

Well, I wont say we saved the best share overall for last, but I think everyone will appreciate this week's standout. Some of the long term Summer members will remember the ground cherries that we have grown. This year, we put most of the harvest into the dehydrator, and combined them with dry 'naked' pumpkin seeds (no hard outer shell), dry carrot pieces, and dry zucchini. Sometimes, it hurts me to share.
Ground cherries are the small yellowish fruit in the bottom left
Also, this week, most of the carrots are freshly dug, as well as some pink daikon radishes for the full share members. The radishes were left in the ground because they had frozen on top before I was able to pull them up, so I will be trimming the top parts off of them. The sections of them that were underground remained unfrozen and are quite tasty. 

The list for this weeks pickup is:

Dried Snack Mix (GORP)
Fruit Leathers

and full share gets:
More Carrots
More Squash
Daikon Radish

As it is the last share of the season, I want to take a minute to reflect on things. We can't stress it enough, we really appreciate all of our past, current and future CSA members. We wouldn't have made it this far without you, and we can't continue without you. We're looking forward to spring and the beginning of a new growth cycle. 


  1. We grow up many vegetables, potatoes, tomatoes, cucumbers, an onion and we need a lot of galvanized buckets because there are seven people in our family. We look for good buckets and at last we saw an advertisement with good shipment here and we are happy now.

  2. You have a family, a farm, you grow your own food and you celebrate. Life is good. What else one needs? Happy to read your success story.
