NOTES ON THE SHARE
We've been away for a few days(!) and I'm so happy to be back on the farm, back in my kitchen, and back to cooking up our beautiful bounty. My oven will be in full swing this week roasting up the gorgeous red peppers and the first of the winter squash! And of course, more roasted tomatoes for the freezer... September, I love you!!!

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
Some recipes from around the web this week...
