NOTES FROM GOLDEN EARTHWORM
Even though Labor Day has come and gone, today’s share reflects our summer bounty: squash, salad, beans, tomatoes, and my personal favorite garnish, parsley. The tomatoes may be a varying degree of ripeness, and we will have a mix of red and orange beefsteak varieties. The red tomatoes should be a deep shade of red when they are ripe, and the orange should be a bright almost neon color. Unripe tomatoes can be left on the kitchen counter to ripen. Many of the tomatoes will have cracks due to the moisture and rain, but they should still be delicious!

Tomato Shares, Available Now

~ ORDER NOW for delivery this Thursday, Aug. 23rd ~

Home-canned tomatoes

Good news from our farmers: they have MORE tomato shares ready for this Thursday, if you are interested! The plum tomatoes are ripening nicely, and there will most likely be more tomatoes as the weeks progress, but if you want to jump in early on your tomato canning, here’s your chance.

The farm is taking care of the business side of ordering, so please deal with Golden Earthworm Farm directly according to the instructions below.

Orders will be accepted in the order they are received by e-mail on a first-come, first-served basis. The farm will invoice members directly through Paypal.

Tomato Shares
$35 for a 20 lb. box of plum canning/sauce tomatoes

Directions for ordering Tomato Shares

  • E-mail Golden Earthworm Organic Farm directly at: info@goldenearthworm.com
  • You MUST INCLUDE the following info in your email:
    Requested number of tomato shares: _____
    Pick-up site: Sunnyside CSA
    Requested week of pick-up: August 23, 2012 (for this week)

The farm is encouraging members to take their shares as soon as possible, as it is possible that they will run out as it gets later in the season.

One more thing: sometimes, the farm also offers tomato seconds (slightly beaten up tomatoes that are still great for canning at a reduced price), but they don’t know yet if or when those will be available. We will let you know as soon as we get word.

Enjoy!
