Greens Mix

Back for the fall we have fresh cut greens of romaine, oak leaf, green leaf, red leaf, baby spinach and arugula!

Radishes

Back for the fall we have french breakfast radish, perfect for a fresh salad. We also enjoy these sliced on buttered and toasted sourdough bread. 

Pears

New this week we have pears from our orchard. They are just starting to ripen on the tree, so you may need to give these a few days to ripen. 

Cucumbers

Still hanging in there, we have the last lemon cucumbers of the season! Enjoy these with your fall greens. 

Apples

More apples this week, we believe they are Jonathan apples. You may notice some spots on these apples, this is just a mild mold from lack of ventilation. If you wash and peel these apples they are still good to eat!

Acorn Squash

Enjoy some baked acorn squash for desert on a cold fall evening!


Eggplant

Everyone gets an eggplant this week, we enjoy these sliced and grilled with olive oil, salt, pepper,  and cumin. 

Green Beans

Our green bean mix includes purple, yellow and green beans, which will all turn green, except strangely the yellow variety, when cooked. 

Peppers

This week we have bell peppers, jalapeno, Anaheim, and hugarian wax peppers for everyone. 

Herbs

This week we have sage and thyme for everyone.
