Fall/Winter Squash

Fall/Winter Squash

Saturday will be our final day for this year’s New Albany Farmer’s Market. Kenny has done a great job keeping the fresh veggies coming and it’s looking like the freeze won’t be here until Friday morning; so he is very busy cleaning up the gardens this week.  We will have green beans, eggplants, bell peppers, a rather large variety of mild and hot peppers, zucchini, sweet potatoes, red potatoes and onions. We will also have loads of fall/winter squashes available… spaghetti, acorn, butternut, etc.  Tomatoes are still hanging in there, we should have plenty on Saturday… including tons of green ones.

There is some good news… plenty of veggies really like the cold weather.  We will have plenty of greens:  Swiss chard, kale, spinach and mustard… lots of turnips, cabbage and maybe a few beets and kohlrabi. Daikon and watermelon radishes will be in abundance again this week.

We still have apples… Golden Delicious and a few Stayman Winesap will also be available this week. Both of these are great for cooking, eating and apple butter making.

Don’t forget to pick up your farm-fresh, free-range eggs at the market. Just a reminder that we have been selling out early each week… so come early or pre-order to make sure you get the items you need.

“Basket of the Week” customers ~ please remember to bring back your baskets and make sure to e-mail me a reminder to ensure your basket order… val@russellveggies.com

Thanks for your patronage,

Val & Kenny
