FRUIT SHARE for Queens 
1 bag mixed Peaches &  Apples

FRUIT STORAGE INFORMATION
Leave peaches at room temperature, or put them in a paper bag.  This does help - the ethylene gas given off by the ripening fruit is trapped in the bag and speeds up the process. Apples can go directly in the fridge, or sit on the counter for a couple days.

Notes from the farm...

Now that Labor Day has passed and the unofficial start of the autumn season is here, we're celebrating with a winter squash in your share this week! I promise you a longer farm update next week. For now, I must get back to taking care of my sick little baby farmer. Hope you all had a nice holiday weekend!
