This cool weather is such a change! I hope that you are enjoying it. Bring on the fuzzy sweaters! (Yes, I'm really hoping for another heat wave). The colder weather means that in a couple weeks we should have those lovely MUMS from Selema Martin. They need cool weather to bloom and develop their colour (and she doesn't force them using a cooler). It's amazing what I've learned from our amazing farmers. In the mean time, consider getting some of the lovely purple fountain grass. It is stunning!

For an amazing autumn meal, I love ratatouille! Introduced to me by Tracy one night night when we went over to watch the movie, it's been my fall favourite ever since! Andrew made it for lunch on Sunday and it cheered me up immensely. What a better use of zucchini, eggplant, tomatoes, peppers and onions!! Don't forget the garlic and lavender and whatever other herbs you choose. Have you made it before? Do you have a favourite ratatouille recipe (that isn't as involved as the classic by Julia Child)? Mmmmm!

A few late additions and things I'd like to point out on the order from include:
  • Broccoli from Lena Burkhart
  • Celery, Leeks and Onions from Selema Martin (freeze the celery for soup all winter long!) - All chemical free!
  • This the season for beets! So lovely in salads with purslane and parsley!
  • Kale and tomatillos (and Salsa Verde kits) from Transpire Organics
  • Bok Choy and Pak Choy from Fertile Ground
  • New Potatoes! Yum!
  • The first of the bulk tomatoes for canning!
  • Lots of beans (in the 'beans' section) including Horticultural Beans - like cranberry beans!
  • Apples, Grapes, Melons, Peaches, Pears and Plums
  • Lots of prepared meals for busy evenings
  • Bread and snacks for lunches
Enjoy this short week (it's already Tuesday!!)
