Notes on the Share

The shares are heavy this week thanks to Baby Watermelons!  These are picked ripe off the vine, so keep yours in the fridge until you're ready to eat it.  More Green Bell Peppers and Long Frying Peppers and the first of the Tomatoes!  Some of you are getting red tomatoes and some are getting cherries... You'll be getting both over the course of the next 5-6 weeks!  Fennel is delicious on summer dinner tables - try the recipe below with olive oil and parmesan.  Cucumbers and a lovely bunch of Toscano Kale round out the share.  Gazpacho sounds so good on hot nights and practically all the ingredients are in your share this week -- try the recipe below.
