Among beds transforming into fields of oats, with puffy jackets, wool caps, frigid fingers, and visible breath, we’re harvesting the root vegetables and fall squash that satisfy those Autumn cravings. Your share this week includes: butternut squash, purple potatoes, leeks, onions, lettuce, beets, carrots, eggplant, hot peppers, sweet peppers, kale, tomatillos, and flowers. Check out these charts and an article from the Sunday New York Times about the high nutritional value of purple potatoes and other colorful veggies. With only one more share to go, be sure to reserve your Thanksgiving Turkey this week!
