Abby's Greens Salad Shares are Done for the Season

For salad share CSA members, last week marked the final distribution of Abby's Greens for the season. If you're not sure how you will live without them, rest assured you can still find Abby's salad at our farmstand, the Port Orford Community Co-op, Coos Head Food Co-op, McKay's in Bandon, and at various restaurants in the area. Depending on the weather this fall, Abby hopes to be harvesting salad greens through October, and with any luck a little bit longer :). 

Fall Colors

We may not be able to brag about a showy display of autumn leaves here on the Oregon coast, but with October comes some of the most intense farm-food hues of the year. Purple napa cabbage, neon pink daikons, ember-orange beets, shiny lipstick peppers, purple-black eggplants, and, soon-to-appear in your share: carnival-striped winter squash. Even after all these years, the wash table still stops me in my tracks on a day like this when Roberto has the produce piled high into a root crop rainbow:

I'm guessing the fall shares are going to feel abundant as we enjoy the overlap of late-ripening summer crops alongside the right-on-time arrival of fall roots, broccoli, romanesco, and greens. I hope your fridge - and your stomach - are big enough.
