CSA crop share 2007 23

This week is the second to last pick up of the season. How sad!

Looking at that incredible harvest and all those vibrant colors, it's so hard to believe that in just a few days, we'll be receiving the last share of 2007.

Blooming Glen has some great cheerleaders and received fabulous press and publicity, which all seems to have contributed to a flood of requests for 2008 CSA subscription registration. What a wonderful testament to the farmers' hard work, dedication and passion - and too, to the supporters and members of the community. Knowing that so many families, when given the choice, prefer naturally grown food from a local farm is reassuring and smile-inducing. I do hope that Blooming Glen's continued success and their neighbor's continued support inspires the CSA model to grow in this area.

As they say, "If you build it, they will come!"

Hi Mikaela: this is totally off-topic but I don't have your email address...

I've been looking for a hearty vegetarian stew recipe (it's that time of year, after all) and was wondering if you had one. I seem to remember reading one where you use either tofu or seitan in place of beef -- just brown it -- can you help me out? If I tried hard enough I could probably make one up -- lots of root vegetables in season now -- but it's the protein part I'm unsure about.

Hope you don't mind the out-of-left-field question, and thanks!

I'm jealous... Our harvest ended in September.

What a great photo though. The colors are indeed spectacular.
