Farm Share Week 14: Sept. 5-8th, 2018

Happy back to school! The pumpkins may be hinting we’re heading into fall, but the hot weather and watermelon say otherwise! Hope you enjoy the last of our sweetest gift to you. The watermelon will last a couple weeks in the fridge but the cantaloupe goes a lot faster so I recommend digging in a.s.a.p.
Hope you find lots of lunch box inspiration with cherry tomatoes, ground cherries (like natures little pre wrapped candy), cucumber, field tomatoes and romaine. And yes, super fresh green beans can totally be lunch worthy too!
