This week’s share consists of carrots, yukina savoy, lettuce, tomatoes, dill, garlic, kale, zucchini, and watermelon.
The bunched greens (top center in picture) is th yukina savoy – an exciting new green from Japan. They are good both raw in salads /sandwiches, and also lightly stir fried with whatever is in the pan.
We are thrilled to still have lots of tomatoes on the vine. We expect to have a good amount of them right through the end of October. With these cool nights, they are taking longer to fully ripen. Tomatoes only reach their full flavor potential when they ripen at temperatures above 60 degrees. So you will get lots of partially ripe tomatoes in your share. They prefer to mature in your home, not in our field. Just keep them on the counter (never the refrigerator).
Many of our tomatoes have blocky shoulders with a recessed stem/core. An apple corer can be useful.
