This week’s SHARES

Wow!  Change of the season…this week’s shares will have a Winter Squash:  Spaghetti, Acorn, or Delicata.  Amarosa Fingerlings for ALL!  Alcosa or new Tendersweet cabbage–Tendersweet is so named because the leaves are thin and can’t be used for wraps instead of bread–

Melon this week is Watermelon!–Luck of the draw…either a small mini-watermelon, an Amarillo yellow meated, or the Orange Crisp…not sure what, where, or when until we get them harvested tomorrow!  Anyone want to help haul melons out of the field into the new cooler The Farmer just completed?–show up at 8:00 a.m. 

More Cauliflower, some new Romanesque, and bagged Broccoli…as well as Yum-Yum Snack Peppers, Green Bells, or Sunrise orange/yellow bell.

Tomato this week is Artisan Cherry, Indigo Cherry Drops, Granadero Salad, or Heirlooms!

Remember– We have three Groups…your turn will come on each of these items!
