LATEST FROM THE FARM — Root Vegetables
Root vegetables are the backbone of the Winter CSA. Every week you come to pick up your veggies you’ll get to fill up your basket from our smorgasbord of organic root veggies - some familiar friends, and some you’ve maybe never seen before! That’s one of the beauties of CSA - the opportunity to try new and unique vegetables that you’ve never heard of before.
We're getting ready for winter and we thought you might like to, too! Early Canadian farmers sure had to learn quickly how to survive the harsh winters and make their bountiful summer and fall harvests last. One way they kept food on the table was to learn to store their root vegetables 'just so' to prolong their goodness and flavor. That's exactly what we're doing at Ottawa Farm Fresh (on a bigger scale, of course!) and we thought you might like to know how to do it, too.
