Butternut Squash~ $5.50 / each Approx. 3.66 lbs
Fall = butternut squash season. Stock up! We did. Ours ran out so I got more from our friends at Upswing Farm. These will be bigger than the squash from the last few weeks.
Purple Top White Globe Turnip~ $2.50 / each Approx. 1 lbs
A pre-1880s heirloom, crisp and sweet on the inside and slightly spicy on the skin. Great along with carrots, potatoes, and onions for a roast or stew on a cool night.
Rutabaga~ $2.00 / each Approx. 1.33 lbs
Ah, the Gilfeather. One of my favorite fall peculiarities. I love the way the waxy green leaves look in the garden, and how the plant shrugs off cold, actually getting sweeter after frost. I also love how well they store – under marginal root storage conditions, these will easily keep until next spring. I missed my rutabaga seeding window this season, so these are from the rock star farmers at Upswing Farm.
Originally from Vermont, these light-skinned white-fleshed rutabagas are exceptionally sweet and have a great texture when roasted. For a real treat on a cool fall night, chop into smallish pieces and roast until golden brown.
