Veggies & Fruit for Aug 24

Have you ever seen an orange watermelon? Get ready, it’s in your veggie share tomorrow. (And another bag of peaches and apples for the fruit shares–let them ripen outside the bag, please.)

All pickups are August 24th at Sunnyside Community Services from 5-8pm.

Orange Watermelon – Give it a try and see how it compares to last week! Store in the fridge. Use now.

Red Tomatoes – This week is beefsteak tomatoes that have been growing since May. Golden Earthworm sent an email how to know when they’re ripe. Store on the counter. Use now.

Sungold Cherry Tomatoes – Great for snacking and salads. Store on the counter. Use now.

Zucchini We’re on to the last planting of these, so enjoy the final harvest. Store in the fridge. Use within a week.

Peppers – These green frying peppers are not spicy. Store in the fridge. Use within a week.

Swiss Chard – This summer green is back and ready to be pan-fried. Store in the fridge. Use within 3 days.

Cabbage One more week of cabbage this summer. Store in the fridge. Use within a week, but if you wrap it well it can last for longer.

Please note that any boxes not picked up by 8pm will be donated to SCS, and items are subject to change. Look for Golden Earthworm Organic Farm CSA on Facebook for more recipes from members!
