The last basket of the season
Thank you all so much for being such a valued part of our farm this growing season. It is truly a joy and makes growing the garden so much better when I can share the goods with all of you.
Sweet potatoes (uncured but delicious)
Per your email this is a "bring your own bag" basket
We are excited to share with you a large amount and variety of the ends of the garden. Please be prepared with a few bags or baskets of your own and PLEASE return any baskets, jars, containers or bottles that belong to HFC.
Please plan to pick up Monday, Tuesday or Wednesday as the Kale are Celery wont keep too long. Text Brittni to coordinate the best time.
The squash and gourds will keep for a bit on your kitchen counter as should the sweet potatoes, as long as they are kept in a paper bag, unwashed. Tomatoes can be frozen until you are ready to cook with them and the herbs can be hung upside down to dry for later use.
