NOTES ON THE SHARE
The tomato harvest is finally over and what a great season it has been! We are in between harvests of some major crops this week, so you'll be getting smaller bunches of Turnips and Radishes while we clean out those fields. We make up for it with big heads of Napa Cabbage and a beautiful bunch of Collards. Potatoes are all ready to roast up in the oven this week and we round out the shares with some amazingly tender baby Arugula. It was just too tender to harvest with the machine, so each leaf was hand picked for you. What a treat! Bon appetit!

FRUIT STORAGE TIPS
"The best way to ripen the fruit is to take it out of the plastic bag and let the condensation dry off so the moisture doesn't encourage any spoilage. As soon as it is ripe, eat it right away or put it in the fridge." - Farmer Clark, Briermere Farms
