A Note on the final deliveries of the season 
This is just a quick reminder about the final delivery of the season. There will be no delivery on Thursday, November 22 because it is Thanksgiving day. So we will skip that week and make your final delivery the following Thursday, November 29th. The delivery you receive on Thursday, November 15 (the week before Thanksgiving) will be the holiday share, as it will include special items that members may want to cook for their holiday meal.

notes on the share

The tomatoes are finally coming in — a bit later than usual, but better late than never!  This week we have cherry tomatoes and we hope to have some big red beefsteaks to give out in the share by next week.  Our watermelons and cantaloupes are ripening quickly in this heat, so those should be making an appearance in the share next week as well.  Some of you have asked about cucumbers…  Well, we lost the first few plantings due to poor germination & wet weather that kept us from getting them into the fields on time back in June, but our final planting looks good and should be ready to harvest in about 3 weeks.  The potatoes in the share this week are called Nicola, and are one of our favorites!  They have a beautiful yellow color, lovely textured flesh and delicious flavor!

Green Romaine Lettuce 1 head
Red Batavian Lettuce 1 head
Toscano Kale – 1 bunch
Scallions – 1 bunch
