Farm Share Week 15: Sept. 13-15, 2017

Looks like summer is having a last hurrah this weekend! Sounds good to me because I feel like we didn’t quite get our fill of the hot weather just yet.
It’s been a rough year for fruit…hence the lack of watermelon and apples in your baskets this year, but some delicious plums grown organically by a friend of ours have come to the rescue this week!
They are a deep purple-black hue and a tad soft when most ripe and sweet. If they still feel quite firm they will taste more tart but still tasty. But the ripe ones…well lets just say they are converting me to loving plums!
We are coming to the end of tomato season, so enjoy them while they last!
More squash, cabbage, carrots and beets are yours to look forward to as well as this week and more weeks to come…potatoes! Some of you got russet and some got yellow flesh potatoes this week. I hope you enjoy this staple nice and fresh and organically grown!
Do you find yourself looking for some extra veggies to preserve for the winter or juice? We have lots of green beans, carrots, beets, potatoes, green peppers,  celery and more. Email Jennifer for prices and availability.

If you want to cure your onions here is a video to show you how: How to cure onions.

Use yoiur onions, peppers and zucchini in this recipe Zucchini Relish with Sweet Peppers.

Hope you enjoy the September harvest!
