notes on the share

**The red tomatoes need to ripen for a few days on the counter until they reach a uniform, deep red.  Please be sure to wash the tomatoes before eating. We have been spraying them with an organically-approved copper spray to protect against late blight infection.  The copper spray will wash off with a little soap and water. 

News from the Farm

The farm fared relatively well from Hurricane Irene.  We will provide a full update on the state of the crops in next week's newsletter.
