Fall Has Come To Urban Acres

October 17, 2012

Hope your October is going well!  Fall has officially arrived at Urban Acres.  In fact, our team traveled all over Texas yesterday visiting several of our local farmers and picking up some wonderful local Texas produce for you!  Stay tuned for video and photos, but here’s a list of the local produce* we’ve got for this weekend’s co-op style produce shares…

* This is just a list of the local items, there will be other organic seasonal items in the shares.

Get lots of recipe ideas on our Pinterest page!

  • Honeycrisp & MacIntosh apples

  • Organic apple cider from a family farm in Colorado
  • Pie pumpkins and edible squash galore (check out our pumpkin and squash Pinterest boards for recipe inspiration!)

We also have fall decorative items like carving pumpkins and Indian corn…

Come by and see us this weekend!

    Can anyone tell me why my acorn squash was so bitter we had to throw out? I baked it with butter, cinnamon and cloves, and then sprinkled with brown sugar. Thanks!

    Hi Fran, I had the same experience with my first acorn squash I cooked last year. It was because you cooked it before it was ripe.

    When acorn squash becomes ripe the skin turns dark green, all the light colors go away. Also the if you look at the stem…once that stem becomes withered and brown it is fully ripened. Hope your next one taste better.

      Thanks for your quick respose. Yes, the squash was yellow and green. Now I know to wait until all dark green–didn’t know, but learning!
