Jupiter Ridge 2019 CSA | Week 17

Hi CSA Members!

Finishing up a late night prepping all your food for your CSA deliveries (as well as restaurant deliveries) to Cedar Rapids tomorrow. For this very reason, we’ll be keeping this newsletter a bit short (we’re tired!) but we’re happy to share this week’s upcoming CSA share list with you so you can know what to look forward to ahead of time…and hear a few updates on the farm, too.

What to expect this week:

  • Kale Mix (Small Leaf)
  • Spinach Bunch
  • Purple Potatoes
  • Acorn Squash
  • Garlic
  • Yellow Storage Onions
  • Parsnips
  • Orange Carrots
  • Winter Radish Medley
  • Rutabagas New!

This lineup does indeed look like a wintery bunch, doesn’t it? Especially with the snow that’s been blanketing the ground as of late (though it’s come so early!) our CSA delivery this week is particularly chock-full of the more “classic” fall/winter root crops than ever before: parsnips, potatoes, squash, storage radishes, and our newest veggie for you to enjoy: rutabagas!

We hope you enjoy them all during this cold weather – and we highly recommend (most of all!) that you roast up a nice medley of these winter roots to warm you up on these cold nights – like the colorful one pictured below. It’s one of our autumn favorites!

Roasted Root Medley | Jupiter Ridge Farm
Sliced butternut squash, purple daikon radishes, chioggia beets, scarlet turnips, and watermelon radishes ready to go into the oven for roasting.

Or do you have your own recipes or ideas in mind? We’d love to hear them – and even post them here if you like!

We’ll see you tomorrow – and very much look forward to delivering to our awesome members for these last few weeks before Thanksgiving!

Warmest Regards,
Adrian & Will | Jupiter Ridge Farm
