News from the Farm

Even though Labor Day has come and gone, today's share reflects our summer bounty: squash, salad, beans, tomatoes, and my personal favorite garnish, parsley.  The tomatoes may be a varying degree of ripeness, and we will have a mix of red and orange beefsteak varieties.  The red tomatoes should be a deep shade of red when they are ripe, and the orange should be a bright almost neon color.  Unripe tomatoes can be left on the kitchen counter to ripen.  Many of the tomatoes will have cracks due to the moisture and rain, but they should still be delicious!

As always, please don't hesitate to contact us if you have any questions about your share. - Stephen
