NOTES ON THE SHARE
Our Tomato harvest is in full swing! You never know what kind of a season it will be and we lucked out this year with the perfect weather for tomatoes! Most are ready to eat, but if you get some that need to ripen, just leave them out on the counter until fully red. Can't make it through them? Try freezing them! I just chop them up (skin on) and put them in a ziplock bag in the freezer to use for soups and other recipes later in the year. Red Beets are such a great 2-for-1 veg. Don't forget to eat the tops! They are great sauteed with garlic and olive oil. Lettuce for your salads (or on your BLT sandwiches) and beautiful, waxy Yellow Potatoes for the most delicious potato salad. The final item will change through the week. Some of you will get Eggplant, some Green Beans. We keep track of what everyone gets so that we can even it out over the coming weeks.

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
