Look at this picture from this same date last year. Totally raining. And look at all those unprepared and inappropriately dressed farmers! Turns out that tossing squash during the first rain is just as much fun as jumping in puddles!

I am excited to give you squash during these next few weeks. Sometimes people get intimidated when they go to cook a squash. I tell them not to worry so much, you can’t get any easier than preparing a squash. And for starters we are giving you the delicate delicata squash to try. Just cut it lengthwise in half, scoop out the seeds, drizzle with olive oil and sea salt, put the two sides face down on a baking dish in the oven and put some water in the bottom of the pan too, and bake at 350 until the squash is soft and maybe even a little browned on the bottom. Wahla! Flip over, put on a plate, fill with sauteed onions, kale, and quinoa, or just eat plain.

This Week’s Harvest:

Lettuce, Kale/Collards/Chard, Tomatoes (the last of ‘em), Peppers, Eggplant, Tomatillos, Sweet Turnips/Bok Choi, Parsley/Basil, Rainbow Sparkly Potato (we named ‘em), Purple Mist Garlic (also named ‘em), and DELICATA SQUASH! Enjoy!
