Rutabaga, also known as a Swedish turnip, is similar to a turnip but larger in size, sweeter and have a tan colored flesh. The name comes from the Swedish word rotabagge, meaning “round root.” Rutabagas have been around since the 17th century and are a popular root vegetable available throughout the fall season in northern latitudes. They provide you with a lot of food, store well and can be prepared in a wide variety of ways. Are you a fan of rutabagas?
Did you know... - Saginaw Meadows is a veganic farm and uses only plant-based fertilizers (no poo on our plants!) - Our farm is off-the-grid relying on solar energy to power our irrigation and well pumps, our barn lighting and our "cabin" on wheels. - We meet and in some cases exceed the USDA standards for organic production. - Our irrigation well is over 160 feet deep, far below any neighboring chemical farming soil contamination. - We are a four season farm currently in our 44th consecutive month of harvesting including fresh greens from our low and high tunnels during the winter months. - Our single day record tomato harvest weighed in at over 400 pounds. - We typically grow over 80 varieties of vegetables, herbs and small fruits each season. - Our fruit orchard includes apple, peach, nectarine and cherry trees. - The solar powered irrigation system at Saginaw Meadows can pump over 2,200 gallons of water a day... that's enough to fill 63 bath tubs. - Egrets, blue herons, mallard ducks, crayfish and a variety of fish have all been spotted in the creek along our road frontage. - The only way to access our farm is over a bridge covered with solid oak decking... which has supported the passing of two 60,000 pound well drilling rigs over it and back! - The walking path around Saginaw Meadows is about 1/3 of a mile and is bordered by a variety of wildflowers. - We are heading into our 10th growing season in 2019... we eat vegan and grow vegan!

Celeriac, also known as celery root, is a great fall vegetable! It has the taste of celery, but can be used in other ways. To cook it, we like to roast or mash it. You can also shred it to enjoy raw. How do you use celeriac?
I was too busy racing the snow to take a pic of the share last week (srry), but may I present to you... Week Eighteen: the final share of the season! Thanks again to everyone that’s cheered me on and supported me (financially, emotionally, and otherwise) as I navigated my first season on this little patch of land. You’ve made my veggie farmer dreams come true! ✨ Stay tuned for next year, ok? #eatlocal #eatseasonal #smallfarm #ecologicalfarm #csafarm #communitysupportedagriculture
