Greetings Foodies!  We are into our 7th week of the season-

This week’s Fruit Share is YELLOW–everything is yellow:  Golden Apples, Pineapple, Bartlett Pears, and a bag of Grapefruit!  Should be fun–Bigger share than the last couple of weeks…assuming everything that I order comes in. 

Note on how the share size is figured:  I have a running total of available money for the Fruit Shares.  Each week I deduct the cost of the Share for that week; The remaining balance is divided by the number of weeks left in a 16 week season and the number of shares (Full’s have two shares).  We are in good shape financially–the last couple of weeks have been bumpy with delayed delivery on the blueberries, refused grapes, and weight shortages that resulted in less pounds on items.  But any shortages increase the amount of money for the following weeks–  🙂

7th WEEK VEGGIE SHARECorn, European Cabbage (small and peppery), Eggplant and Tomatoes, Green and Purple Islander Bells, Green Beans, Beets, Cantaloupe and Watermelons.  Greens this week are Curly Kale, Swiss chard, or Salanova lettuce.  Kale and Salanova supplies are low–new crop of Salanova in a couple of weeks–

Remember–not everything is available for all pick up days–items will be rotated weekly to assure everyone gets a share during the season.  ENJOY!!
