Last week our tomatoes really started to ripen, which has been very satisfying for us after staring at green fruit everyday for the past month. In the share this week we included some delicious heirloom tomatoes which have incredible flavor. We also included two delicata squash which, as the name suggests, have a delicate rind which softens when cooked and is therefore quite tasty. A few of our winter squash varieties have already matured so we will be including those over the next few weeks and months. Thank you for supporting our farm and have a great week!
