Mountain Bounty Farm
Need your fix of fresh veggies? While the Nevada City Farmers Market and Nevada County Growers Market are about to end their seasons, Mountain Bounty Farm has just started their Winter CSA (Community Supported Agriculture) share. Today’s box includes carrots, dino kale, persimmons, onions, yellow carrots, garlic, batavian crisp, mixed sweet pepper and spinach. If you’re interested in more information on their winter fruit or veggie share, click here. And if you’re thinking of gardening our friends at Peaceful Valley Farm and Garden Supply have some great resources for winter gardening, click here for a video on how to dehydrate food. If you’ve got a persimmons tree feel free to drop off some extra fruit in the Outside Inn’s free veggie cart, we’re just about ready to wrap up the 2013 season, check out the Peaceful Valley Facebook page for a great recipe on what to do with your extra fruit. The Outside Inn blog is excited to have one Mountain Bounty Farm vegetable CSA box to giveaway* and a Peaceful Valley Vegetable Peeler. Post a comment on here about your favorite winter vegetable and I’ll draw a winner on Thanksgiving.
*Giveaway valid for new Mountain Bounty subscribers only, must pick up box in Nevada City before February 1st.
Your blog posts are so interesting. Did not realize there were any Winter Veggie CSAs….
We all learn something new every day, will go have a look for that plaque, thanks for the tip.
My favorite winter veggie has to be sweet potatoes! So much you can do with them and they’re so so good for you!
Have you ever had sweet potato burritos? Super easy, just add with beans and rice.
My favorite winter veggie has to be the squash? Not specific enough? Man, I can’t choose! Spaghetti. No, acorn. No, no, butternut. Yeah, butternut.
Grin, I think you deserve them all!
This is the time of year when I stock up on winter squashes. They will store in a cool place for months. Yummy
My favorite is delicatta squash, what’s yours?
If you guys have the availability, and have not yet tried it….Red Kuri Squash and Black Futsu are out of this world! Red Kuri is very smooth and a beautiful color and texture. Black Futsu has a slight hazelnut taste. Outstanding! 🙂
Oh, sounds good… must have to check those out.
Are we going to inspire you to paint veggies?
I guess if I have to name a favorite, it’s gotta be butternut squash – very versatile and delish!
What do you like to do best with the squash?
Greens, greens, greens – mustard greens top the list, and baby bok choy, chard, spinach, kale, and on and on!
Glad to hear you’re a veggie loving family 🙂
I’m not a new MB subscriber(I’ve subscribed for 4-5 yrs.
old?) but would love to win a box. I love greens and carrots. The purple carrots in the summer share were outrageously good. I’d love to try these yellow ones.
The purple carrots were indeed amazing, I just sauteed up the yellow carrots and love how sweet they are.
Used to carboload, now I veggieload.
Love the sound of that… can’t think of anything wrong with eating too many veggies.
I love it all!
Thanks Leia, me too!
I LOVE veggies especially in season! My favorite winter veggie is Butternut Squash! I love them sliced and baked in the oven topped with cinnamon and spices or in a warm soup on a cold day.
Thanks Kayle, and thanks for being a poster child for the veggie cart 🙂
I love eating winter veggies (and roots). A slow-roasted medley of delicata squash, beets, onions, potatoes, and kale with seasoning is major comfort food. And thanks for all your support of our community endeavors, Erin!
Delicious Delicata squash and Spaghetti squash. I love Brussels sprouts grown on a stalk (they last so much longer like that) sprinkled with roasted almonds! Cabbage bright and crisp, raw or cooked. Grated raw celery root and apple with a Honey Dijon vinaigrette, hmm yum me !! And the cooler the weather the sweeter the Kale. The nourishing Butternut squash soup with fresh squeezed orange juice tops it all !
Oh my goodness, you’re making me hungry!!!
My favorite winter vegetable… probably brussels sprouts… cooked with shallots and bacon! 🙂 incidentally, I had no idea it was spelled “brussels” I always thought it was just “brussel” – weird!
Gotta go with Spinach! Great raw or cooked salad or scrambled eggs.
Acorn squash is definitely my favorite winter vegetable. I keep a few on hand and when I don’t have anything else for dinner I just make a quick batch of quinoa and add some nuts, dried fruit, cheese and olive oil/vinegar and voila! Easy stuffed squash for dinner. Yummmmm…
