Kruse Farms is having their annual "everything 20% off sale" in preparation for winter closing. Don't wait. The last day to shop is January 16th. I stopped by Saturday to check out the selection. Not all of the produce they sell is local, but they still have their own green cabbage, red beets, turnips, rutabagas and lots of varieties of winter squash. You can also pick up some Umpqua Valley lamb, Willamette Valley apples, California almonds, walnuts, and dried prunes. I even bought a can of Chuck's Seafood albacore tuna that was packed right over in Charleston, Oregon. I also bought a 50 pound box of keeper potatoes from Malin, Oregon.
Tonight we'll be having Potato-Corn Chowder, coleslaw, and Whole Wheat Pumpkin muffins for dinner. How's that for a local winter menu!
