Sept 13th Pickup: Vegetable & Fruit

How is everyone handling the rain? I say as long as it’s not 95 and humid, I’ll take it. You know what else I’ll take? More veggies from Golden Earthworm!

Come get yours (and fruit) from 5-8pm at Sunnyside Community Services this Thursday.

First, a message from Golden Earthworm about vegetables this season: Please note that this week we have a limited harvest of crops due to the lag from wet weather this summer that kept us from getting our plantings in on time.  Please know that we have a lot of wonderful crops growing in the fields and they will be in your shares very soon!  Thank you for your understanding and patience as we work with Mother Nature to feed you well! 

To see complete info for vegetables in the box this week, check out Golden Earthworm’s weekly newsletter. The list below is most of what will be in the box this week, but items are subject to change.
