Mountain Bounty Farm Winter CSA
Eat your greens! I’m a huge fan of eating local produce and love seeing the fabulous variety of fruit and veggies that come through the Outside Inn’s free veggie cart over the summer. But with only a few more weeks left of the Nevada City Farmers Market and Nevada County Growers Market it’s a good time to think about joining the Mountain Bounty Farm Winter CSA (Community Supported Agriculture). Click here for more information about a weekly box of either fruit or veggies from Riverdog Farm. Sign up by November 13th to be on the first winter delivery on November 19th. If you’re looking for more information on local farms, check out the Nevada County Grown Farm Guide. The Outside Inn blog is excited to have one Mountain Bounty Farm vegetable CSA box to giveaway*. Post a comment on here about your favorite winter vegetable and I’ll draw a winner on Wednesday, November 19th. Thanks Lenkaland Photography for some additional photos from the Mountain Bounty Farm, have you hugged a farmer today?

Hard to choose a favorite but I’ll go with winter squash. It can be roasted, baked, sautéed, steamed, just about any ol’ way one wishes to use it! Love to cook cubes in a hot oven so that they caramelize, then combine and purée with Indian type spices, garlic and onion to make an exquisite, beautifully orange colored dip.
Sounds delicious… I’ve been enjoying delicatta squash and pumpkin lately.
I am a big butternut squash fan – it’s very versatile. I am excited because I just signed up for the winter CSA with Mountain Bounty. I’m looking forward to enjoying all of the great veggies they offer!!
Yeah! Guess we’ll see you at the Inn on Wednesday afternoons.
Great option… now I’m in the mood for a cream of broccoli soup.
Yay! Everything looks so tasty! Thanks for sharing my photos :). They were awesome hosts when our first graders visitors!
Thanks for the photos, so glad our community supports local farmers and shows the youngesters where their vegetables came from.
Awesome, I didn’t realized they did a winter CSA.
They do! You’ll come up with all sorts of creative ways to eat root vegetables, it’s a good challenge every week (plus other things that don’t require googling to figure out how to cook).
I’m ready for butternut squash soup, yum!
Sounds delicious, I have a recipe I like that uses fresh ginger in the butternut squash soup, always a winner.
I love cauliflower! It’s great raw–no dip required! Just crunch away!
Roasted cauliflower is my favorite way, don’t eat it raw very often, but I’ll give it a try.
One of my favorite winter vegies is cabbage. It is very versatile and is full of goodness.
Fresh grown broccoli is my fav!
Parsnips are my favorite this year! Yum! Parsnip oven fries, roasted parsnips with potatoes and carrots, parsnip cupcakes with maple frosting, parsnip hash browns! I just love the smell of them when they are raw:)
I don’t think I’ve ever had a parsnip cupcake before… learn something new every day.
Are brussle sprouts considered winter veggies? I lurve my brussle sprouts!
You can pick whatever you want, glad to hear you’re choosing a vegetable 🙂
we just had bok choy tonight which was delicious! But my favorite would have to be Brussels sprouts.
I thought you were adversed to green things? Which veggies don’t you eat? Love that your pick is brussel sprouts.
I love all fall and winter vegetables, I have kale and broccoli growing in my garden. My favorite is delicatta and butternut squash. I just halve and slice the delicatta, toss with some olive oil,salt, and pepper roast and enjoy. No need to peel!
Totally agree that the no need to peel is a fabulous bonus for a delicious squash.
I love the beets we get–2 veggies in one! Roast the roots and steam the greens. MMMmmmmmh.
Good point, I love adding some of the greens to my juice too.
Honestly, nothing can beat a potato. So simple; so versatile; so so sublime.
Let’s all go eat french fries 🙂
This is AMAZING. I love parsnips. Someone told me that they’re the least nutritional vegetable there is (I have yet to confirm this with research), but there is something so sweet and earthy about their taste. Speaking of earthy roots, I have to say that I love burdock just as much. Some people don’t like the flavor, but it tastes more nourishing to me than any other food. The cold months are all about rooting down into yourself and your home, and I like to roast roots to eat and make herbal root decoctions to drink at least once a week during fall & winter.
I might have to have another look at parsnips… I’ve tried them roasted… and never heard of burdock. Thanks for playing along.
I love anything weird — kohlrabi and romanesco especially — to spark my creativity, both in the kitchen and in the studio. Nature is so inspiring (and tasty).
What a perfect Kathy answer, okay, weird it is….
Beets are my favorite! I love to cook enough to have some leftovers… then I put the leftovers in a bowl with a bit of balsamic vinegar, refrigerate overnight and enjoy them on a salad. Yum!
I love beets too, and now you’ve got me thinking about a roasted beet salad.
Would be thrilled with their glorious veggies for the winter.
Any vegetable considered a root is perfect for my winter consumption. Love anything roasted too.
Ok people, let’s get real. Most of us eat veggies because you need to to for health. I mean really, if we didn’t do all sorts of stuff to them to make them palatable, they wouldn’t get eaten 😉 Bake them, dump dressing all over them, add cheese, etc. I mean seriously, If someone put a blow of raw broccoli next to bowl of bacon or a bowl of cheese and crackers, which one is really going to make your tummy rumble when you look at it, hmm? That said, I’m all for eating quality vegetables and I’ll vote for kale since it goes from being absolutely wretched tasting when raw to delicious with an olive oil spry and sea salt once baked a low temps in an oven.
I’m really digging on my homemade roasted pumpkin seeds, so pumpkin is my favorite 😉 shocker….
I love fall, and winter, partly because of our birthdays, but I also love fall veggies. My dad grew butternut squash, and we would eat it baked with home-made butter (my mom milked Jersey cows) and maple syrup when I was growing up. It is such a perfect treat, and comfort food. Now I mostly buy it, grow a little, but that is my favorite winter veg (although greens and other root veggies are pretty sweet too)
