Week 12 CSA basket

We're in the middle of summer bounty. Please bring extra bags this week for your produce!

We're giving you onions this week. We'll have just harvested them so they'll still have their green tops on. If you plan on using your onions in the next few weeks, feel free to also use those green tops just like you would scallions or chives. If you plan on storing your onions for 2 or more weeks, then we recommend you don't cut the greens off and instead put them in a dry place near a windowsill for ~10 days so they have time to "cure" (i.e., the tops will dry and the onions will resemble the ones you are used to buying in the store). Then you can store them as usual.

Expect the following this week:
Tomatoes, cherry tomatoes, onions, garlic, lettuce, parsley, cilantro, dill, scallions, beets, corn, summer squash, cucumbers, watermelon, chard.
