Patchwork: Autumn cycles around to close the season

Posted on September 30, 2010 |
By Kate Gridley



Canada geese are unfailingly punctual. As I began to put my garden to bed this weekend, the honking from high above pulled my gaze to a cloud white sky. Those skeins of geese in long wispy V’s never fail to reassure: an ancient rhythm still pulses, something actually feels right with the world.

This weekend marked the end of my tomato season, the middle of apple season, and the beginning of planning for next year. For me, this is already a season of thanksgiving.

Patchwork: That's not fall in my garden

Posted on September 23, 2010 |
By Barbara Ganley



I know, I know, it’s that time of year again — the first string of geese flew overhead as I thinned lettuce this morning; this evening as I picked beans, light slanted long shadows across the field and the air took a sudden chill. There’s no mistake about fall’s inexorable approach. No calendar needed, nor sounds of football game, marching band, school bell. It’s in the sunflowers heavy with seed flopping over beneath the weight of feasting squirrels. It’s in the garden chatter turning all chickadee, blue jay, goldfinch.

Patchwork recipes: The best squash

Best Baked Squash

Buttercup squash makes, in my opinion, the best baked squash. Its flesh is dark orange and dry, and it absorbs maple syrup and butter beautifully. Wash and cut the buttercup in half and place, cut side up in a baking dish.

Put a large dollop of butter in each “cup” along with a generous amount of maple syrup. Salt and pepper the halves. Add water to the baking dish and cover with foil. Bake at 375 F for at least 1 hour.

Mom always served it this way at Thanksgiving dinner.

Patchwork: How was your harvest this year

Posted on September 16, 2010 |
By Will Stevens and Judy Stevens



“What is going on at the farm?” September on a vegetable farm is perhaps the busiest month of the year. We are harvesting, processing, putting into storage and selling vegetables, cleaning up the fields, taking soil samples, applying compost and cover cropping. As we strive to keep order on our farm and prepare for winter, the fields that once supported long straight rows of spring and summer crops are now mostly empty of greenery.

Carrots with Vinegar and Mint

Peel and trim 2 pounds of carrots and cut into quarter-inch rounds. Pat them dry.

In a large, heavy frying pan, add vegetable oil to one inch in depth, and heat the oil to 375 degrees. Place the carrots in the oil so they are not crowding each other and cook until lightly brown on the edges (three to four minutes). Remove carrots with a slotted spoon and transfer to paper towels to blot. Repeat with all carrots.

Patchwork: Hot peppers of the world grow in close harmony

Posted on September 2, 2010 |
By Barbara Ganley



My house smells of hot peppers. Who knew that a dehydrator filled with them would send clouds of pungent oil into the air? At this rate I could probably produce highly effective pepper spray, may soon have to don goggles. It’s a good thing I can throw open windows and doors. It’s a good thing I have a tolerant family.
