(Listed from shortest shelf life to longest shelf life) Romaine or Red Leaf Lettuce:  Store in the crisper in a plastic bag. Green Kale:  We had some of these with scrambled eggs and bacon this morning, quite delicious. The varieties I remember were never very tasty and a little tough but this one is quite different. Give it a try and I think you will be pleasantly surprised. Store in the crisper Bok Choy: Great for stir fry’s, we also add them to soups. Store in the crisper. Celeriac: Our celery succumbed to the freeze but this crop came through just fine. For Thanksgiving Lorraine mixed potatoes and celeriac with lots of butter and cream into the most delicious mashed potatoes. Store in the crisper. Tadorna Leeks: The selection of this variety of leeks was not under my control as it was a group purchase with Riverdog, Terra Firma and Full Belly Farm. They wanted leeks good for the wholesale market and stores. This year we have ordered our own and I have at least four varieties selected. These have longer white shanks and I think they should have improved flavor. Store in your crisper. Savoy Cabbage: I love the look of these cabbages, quite regal. Our next best tasting variety after the Wakefield. Store in the crisper. Daikon: Nice long roots with their tops on. If you intend to keep it for more than just a few days remove the tops. I have some lady customers at the market who buy it and make a tea with the leaves and bathe in it! Try it raw in salads. It can also be added to soups. Store in the crisper. Butternut Squash or Sweet Potatoes: Diane is her name, she may not be the  most beautiful sweet potato you have seen but she tastes great. Makes amazing pie, fries etc.. Store in a warm dry place out of the sun. Likes to watch comedy central, avoid the cooking channel. Use within a couple of weeks. Satsuma Mandarins: From Bill Crepps in Winters. The paperwork of organic farming drives Bill crazy so he is not certified. That does not change how he farms. The taste tells us he is organic and I have known Bill for many years. Navel Oranges: From Nacho at Twin Girls Farm, certified organic. They are certified organic and pack for a wholesaler called purity so that is why you may sometimes find these labels on fruit from them. I asked for small fruit responding to members with small children who sometimes cannot eat a whole orange. Lisbon Lemons: From Nacho at Twin Girls Farm, certified organic. They are certified organic, I asked for the smaller ones so as to reduce wasting any when you only need a little lemon. I hope you all had a great holiday break. I had all my children with me so I was very happy. I also had lots of seed catalogs that arrive in the mail in December so I spent quite some time looking for new things to grow and new varieties. I am very excited about the year ahead. We have made some great strides in 2013 and hope to go further this coming year. Please encourage your friends and co workers to consider joining your farm. Great food from a good source, where you can visit and see how it is grown is not a luxury but a necessity for a healthy body and environment…. Nigel
