This Week's Share-Beans, Greens and Spaghetti Squash

All the rain and the cooler weather has ushered it some flavors of fall to this week's share. Most notably is the inclusion of fresh shelling beans and spaghetti squash and the return of cooking greens and greens beans. Monday and Wednesday's share will differ a bit, Monday will get melons and Wednesday more tomatoes. Depending on the weather we will switch it up next week. Below is a listing of share items that Monday and Wednesday have in common:

This Week's Share:
