NOTES ON THE GOLDEN EARTHWORM VEGGIE SHARE
A glorious summer share this week! Beautiful Swiss Chard and freshly dug Red Potatoes for a lovely potato salad. Try the recipe below. Basil for pesto or a caprese salad with sliced Tomatoes. The tomatoes have been sprayed with copper as a preventative for late blight. While this is certified for use in organic production, we do recommend that you wash the tomatoes well before eating. Some of you will get another Watermelon this week, while others will get the first of the Green Bean harvest and some Cherry Tomatoes. We hope to have a planting of yellow watermelons ready for harvest in another few weeks and there will be plenty more cherry tomatoes and green beans for everyone soon! (We are very careful to make sure that members receive the same items over the course of a few weeks, although it does take a bit of juggling on our part!) Cabbage, Cukes and Onions round out the box. I’m excited to get into the kitchen… I have some fabulous summer dishes featuring this week’s bounty. Bon appetit!

Did I promise a full farm update this week? Silly me! I have so much on my plate (no pun intended) that I need to postpone it another week. I apologize, but I do promise to fully update you- with photos, no less—very soon!
