Click on a crop below to view more information, cooking tips and recipes...

Butternut Squash - 1 piece
Green Kale - 1 bunch
Escarole - 1 head
Radicchio - 1 head
Broccoli - 2 pieces
Fennel - 2-3 pieces
Dill OR Cilantro - 1 bunch
Spinach - 1 large .75lb bag
Bonus! Garlic seconds - 1 or 2 small pieces. Some garlic is missing a clove or two.  We are using up the slightly damaged garlic which still has many good quality cloves.  The brown discoloration on some of the cloves is just on the surface and is cosmetic, although you may want to cut it off before using.

FRUIT SHARE - LONG ISLAND SITES
Tuesday - 1 mixed bag Empire and Mutsu Apples
Wednesday - 1 mixed bag Empire and Mutsu Apples
Thursday/Friday - 1 mixed bag Empire and Mutsu Apples
