NOTES ON THE GOLDEN EARTHWORM VEGGIE SHARE
A lovely fall box of produce this week.  We tried to include many items which don’t need to be cooked, just in case you’re still without electricity or cooking facilities.  The sweet potatoes will store, but they should not be left outside in cold temperatures.  Most other items can be left outside if you don’t have electricity to keep them in your fridge.

NEWS FROM GOLDEN EARTHWORM FARM
The farm is doing well after the storm.  No damage to report.  Our best wishes go out to members who suffered loss and damage from the storm.
