In your share this week:

Scallions, yellow onions, cucumbers, tomatillos, lettuce, sweet peppers, kohl rabi, yellow squash, zucchini, ground cherries, fennel, sweet corn (large share pictured). Not pictured here, but you get them also! : beefsteak & cherry tomatoes.

Use first (best when very fresh): tomatoes*, sweet corn

Store a little longer (about 2 weeks): everything else!

 

While your produce is super fresh, it has not been washed! Please take care to always wash your vegetables well before enjoying.  

Happy Week 17 of the Summer CSA!

 

We’ve rounded up some of our finest produce for your share this week. Don’t forget, *if you pick your share up at Priapi Gardens, your tomatoes will be waiting for you in the farmstand!*

 

If you have not yet encountered a ground cherry, you are in for a treat! They are not cherries at all, but a lesser-known member of the nightshade family native to the Americas. Learn more about this tart and tropical tasting fruit by clicking the link below, or peel their little husks off and pop one in your mouth to see what they’re all about!
