Attached is the planned harvest list for your CSA week # 23, delivery Tuesday, 11-10-09.

We have two interesting varieties of Cauliflower in your share this week. One is Red Cauliflower and the other is Romanesco Cauliflower. Both were late season bloomers with regard to their maturity, hence their appearance so late in the season. If you haven’t seen either one of these before, I know they’re going to make your eyebrows go a bit higher than they normally sit on your forehead. For those of you that are science/math fans, you will recognize the Romanesco Cauliflower to have fractal, (self similarity patterns), in its florets. You might think that I have a seed supplier connection other than those that sell here on the planet Earth, but I can assure you that even if it looks like it might come from another planet, it grew in our field right down the road. (FYI, nature gives us other examples of these same type patterns in snow flakes, crystals, blood vessels, tree and leaf designs, and others.) What does this all mean? Just cool stuff to help you continue eating healthy veggies.

This delivery comes as the last week in the 2009 summer season CSA for you. Thank you all for making this CSA arrangement happen and be the success that it was this season. We enjoyed meeting those of you that were at the Franklin Park drop Sunday and we look forward to doing additional seasons and other CSA arrangements with you.

Be well,
Fred & Karen
