October2 or 5 CSA

2nd to last share of the regular season contains:

1 pound broccoli, 3/4 pound kale, 1 pound Romano beans, 2 kohlrabi, 1 bunch carrots, 1 bunch hakurei turnips, 1 bunch radishes, 2 butternut squash, 2 pounds potatoes, 2 bulbs garlic.

We have had a little rain here to help these fall crops along.  Hopefully the predicted cooler temperatures arrive end of the week and we can breathe a sigh of relief.  Next week you will get sweet potatoes!
