Stone Soup Farm CSA: Weeks Eighteen and Twenty

Stone Soup Farm CSA Week Eighteen

Ok, yes, I am writing this post because I feel guilty. Guilty because we pick up our first winter share tomorrow, and I never told you about our last two shares of the regular season! First, week Eighteen: onions, garlic, potatoes, tatsoi, leeks, cilantro and salad greens. As I recall, we let the tatsoi rot in the crisper drawer while we were on our honeymoon.

Week Nineteen: Finn and Heather picked up our share while we were on our honeymoon. Thanks for giving it a good home, guys!

Stone Soup Farm CSA Week Twenty

Week Twenty, aka the last week of the regular season, BOO. A couple of green peppers, garlic, potatoes, onions, butternuts, kale, popcorn (hidden in the kale there), cilantro and a couple of ornamental gourds that are still sitting pretty on our coffee table. In fact, I took a very dramatic picture of them the other day.

I don't have a recipe for you today, I'm sorry, dudes. Here's the thing about cooking school: it doesn't leave a ton of time for actual home cooking. We've been surviving on quesadillas and slow-cooker beans and breakfast-for-dinner type situations. Last week I used leftover brioche dough from class to make a deep dish pizza of sorts. Yesterday we had popcorn for dinner. Sigh.

Anyway, our first winter share pickup is tomorrow, so there will be a big pile of tasty things waiting to be cooked, and I'll be back with a right and proper meal type item. 


  1. Dude, I just misread "winter share" as "wine share" and got very excited about the possibility of such a thing. Can you imagine getting a bottle or two of local wine every week? I mean, I like fruit and egg options,

    However, your actual shares, with all the hard squash and potatoes and serious greens, also look great!

  2. hey! i work at stone soup farm and had been meaning to check out this blog all summer, and it's so wonderful! it's so magical to see all of the shares from the season laid out in photos... every vegetable brings back different memories of harvesting at different times throughout the summer. and it's so incredibly awesome to see our produce being transformed into delicious edibles! great to see the fruits of our labor going into welcoming hands. i hope you enjoy your winter share! yesterday was an intense day of harvesting in sub-freezing weather, so i hope the vegetables made it out okay!
