Us farmers are excited that fall crops are finally coming in! We’ve all felt the weather changing and so have the plants. While the cold-weather crops are thriving, the hot-weather loving crops are on their way out. The great thing about harvest season is that for a short period, not only are summer crops (like peppers and tomatoes) showing a great last push of produce, but the crops we planted for fall (like beets and carrots) are starting to come in as well. This week tatsoi, a flavorful asian specialty green, makes its 2013 debut in the boxes!
We’re excited to celebrate this harvest abundance with our current and prospective members tomorrow, Sunday, Sept. 29, (check your e-mail inbox for details)!
Here’s what’s in this week’s box:
