RECIPE RECOMMENDATIONS

Natalie submitted this recipe for Pumpkin Muffins, which she made with butternut squash. To adapt the recipe for butternut squash, Natalie split the butternut squash in half, took out the seeds, and baked at 425 until stop. She then used 2 cups of it in the recipe (and added raisins!). 

Nadine also sent in THREE recipes for Delicata squash. Check them out here

Welcome to Week 22 for this year's season!

 

ANNOUNCEMENTS & REMINDERS 

About Last Week...: Sincere apologies about the mix-up last week at the Dupont pickup site. We found out at the last minute that, thanks to construction, the alley we normally use was unavailable. Jenn set up the van at the opposite end of the same alley (near R St.) and tried to find as many wayward CSA members as she could. But we know there are some of you who showed up to get your veggies and never could find the van. Sorry -- we know that must have been frustrating!

The good news is that, of course, you can pick up a double share if you missed last week. And FYI, we're back our regular Dupont pickup site this week. Thanks for your patience and understanding.

Have a place for rent? Some of your responsible, friendly farmers are looking for housing in the Upper Marlboro/Bowie area. If you have a place to rent or need a housesitter, let us know!
