Brussels Sprouts - We are selling them by the stalk and the sprouts are sizing up nicely for October/November meals. Savoy Cabbage - The variety we grow is Melissa Savoy and the texture is divine. Great for soup, stirfry, and beautiful steamed for cabbage leaf boats. Carrots - These roots are developing that deep sweetness and color with the few frosts we've gotten lately.
