Week 7 2015

Heat brings on hot weather veggies.  Us farmers are moving slow these days, but we’re rewarded for all our sweat and toil with tomatoes, basil, and more.  Here’s your share of the reward: Please note this is being posted on Monday- changes are often made to the finished boxes depending on the actual numbers from […]
