A NOTE FROM GOLDEN EARTHWORM FARM
STORAGE TIPS
In a bag in the fridge: Green Beans, Leeks
In the fridge: Cucumbers, Watermelon, Green Bell Pepper
On the counter: Tomatoes

A quick note about the tomatoes… The cool, and now wet, weather, is affecting both the quantity (slowing the ripening process) and quality (many have developed cracks) of our harvest. If you do receive a tomato with cracks, it is most likely just cosmetic and can be easily cut out without losing much of the flesh. We’re hoping that along with the sun and warmer temperatures forecasted for later this week, our tomatoes will start ripening faster and we’ll have many more to distribute in the coming weeks!
