This Week's Share-Melons and More Cherry Tomatoes

This week's share will feature melons for the first time this season. We will start off with watermelons and honeydews and hopefully add cantaloupe next week. A few year's ago the hot new summer salad was watermelon, feta and mint. Last year grilled watermelon was all the rage. This year the trend seems to be turning your watermelon into a delicious and refreshing cocktail. See this great new blog The Modern Farm Table for a rum, basil and watermelon drink.

Speaking of fruit, the Northstar Fruit Share will begin this week. The bags of fruit should ONLY be taken by those who have paid and signed up for this delicious addition to the CSA experience. The fruit shares sell out very early in the season, if you want to get on the waiting list for next year check out their website for more information.

Finally, this weekend we are hosting another Medicinal Herb Workshop at the farm. I will be positng more information shortly. In the meantime check out the Facebook Event if you would like to register.

This Week's Share:
