Aug 30th Pickup: Vegetable & Fruit

Who is loving their fresh fruit and veggies through summer? Well, we’ve got another box coming up this week!

Pickups are at Sunnyside Community Services from 5-8pm.

To see complete info for vegetables in the box this week, check out Golden Earthworm’s weekly newsletter. Items are subject to change.

The fruit share this week is apples and peaches.

For vegetables:

Sungold Cherry Tomatoes – Also known as tomato candy they’re so sweet! Store on the counter, use now.

Red Tomatoes – The secret to a good tomato is letting it ripen. Set these on your counter (in a dry spot) until the flesh turns a deep red all over. Do not refrigerate.

Parsley – Adds bright flavor to dishes.  Try a salsa verde to top fish, poultry or roasted veggies. Store in an airtight container in the fridge, use within 3 days.

Long Green Peppers – These are great in salads, stuffed or sautéed with onions. Some are harvested in their green stage, and others we leave on the plant until they turn red. Store in an airtight container in the fridge, use within 5 days.

Yellow Storage Onions – Our storage onions will last if you leave them on the counter in a dry spot, but they’re best when using them while they’re still juicy and fresh inside. Store on the counter, use within 5 days.

Yukon Gold Potatoes –  Waxy variety that holds up well when cooked. Store in a cool (not cold), dark place, use within 2 weeks.

Red Batavian Lettuce – Crunchy and flavorful for summertime salads. Store in an airtight container in the fridge, use within 3 days.

Please note that any boxes not picked up by 8pm will be donated to SCS. Look for Golden Earthworm Organic Farm CSA on Facebook for more recipes from members!
