Week #10 Shares - Labor Day Weekend!

Seems like it was just Memorial Day, and here we are at Labor Day already.  What a great summer it has been!  The harvest continues to be strong, with overflowing totes again this week.  The chickens are now out in the orchard, gobbling up bugs and spreading fertilizer, and fall planting was largely completed this week with carrots, turnips, green onions, radishes, snap peas, swiss chard, lettuce and spinach all going in the fields and hoop house.

This weeks shares include:

  • Green/Yellow and a couple random Purple Beans
  • Beets
  • Cucumbers
  • Zucchini
  • Sweet Corn
  • Basil
  • Parsley
  • Chives
  • Red Potatoes
  • Tomatoes
  • Cherry Tomatoes (if you can return the pint containers each week that would be awesomely appreciated)
  • Green Peppers
  • Jalapeno Peppers
  • Red Kale
  • Leaf Lettuce
  • Romaine Lettuce

Clare has updated the recipe site with a couple of new additions:
