What’s in the box this week?

Standard Shares include:

Arava Melon A galia-type hybrid.  One of our favorites.  Green flesh and netted skin with a sweet bubblegum flavor and a hint of cantaloupe.  Chilling melons in your fridge enhances their texture and sweetness, as well as lengthens their shelf life. 

Poblano Peppers A small, mild pepper best known for its role in stuffed Chile Rellenos.  Stuffed with a combination of fresh and dry cheese and baked, served with tomato sauce and beans.  Yum!

Jalapeno Peppers

Cherry Tomatoes

Lemon Cucumbers

Midnight Zucchini

Walla Walla Onion

Egg Shares include eggs from our certified organic, pasture-raised, happy hens.

Preserve Shares: Crushed Roma Tomato

Vegetable Forecast:  Melon, Valley Girl Tomatoes, Padron Peppers, Zucchini, Basil, Garlic

We hope you enjoy your produce as much as we enjoy growing it for you!
