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!

Aug 30th Pickup: Vegetable & Fruit

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.

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.
