Thanksgiving Cheat Sheet: Andy gave me this list that he's planning and hoping for next week's boxes, it may change a bit:
Yukon Gold New Potatoes
Couve Tronchudo (Portuguese cabbage, like collards)
Chantenay carrots x 2 bunches; 1 yellow, 1 orange
Italian Parsley x 1 bunch
apples of some sort
Purple cauliflower
Butternut squash 

Click on the above Link to the order form text to place your order for a pick up  next Wednesday, November 23rd from 12 noon to 2 PM. This is an earlier pre-Thanksgiving time so if you need to pick up later, please let us know and we'll try to make arrangements for a more convenient time.

Please forward this to any friends who might be interested. 

Why so much cauliflower at once? You can share it, pickle it, roast it: it's picked so fresh it's sweet, it's a different animal that the cauliflower that's been on ice from the supermarket. 

How the Ladybug Bulk Delivery Program works: First, you submit your form via the link above, then nothing happens until we send you an email confirmation with directions to the pick up location. We plan to do those a day or two before the delivery day, by Tuesday. at the latest  Then, just show up at the pick up site at the time appointed (12 to 2 pm).

Delicious roasted with olive oil and salt and mixed into a salad or pasta.

~ Red Padron Peppers $10 for 5 pound bag -- These are left on the plant and become fiery hot. They are perfect to dry then whirl in the food processor for RED PEPPER CHILE FLAKES. These make a great holiday gift! Photo essay on how to do this.

~ Jerusalem Artichokes $15/5# bag -- Also called Sunchokes, Jerusalem artichokes are popular with restaurants in the winter because they make rich soups and gratins. Some people enjoy them sliced thin and served raw. The texture of raw Jerusalem artichoke is similar to the water chestnut.
