Welcome to Avalon Farm Homegrown's Share of the Farm Newsletter, week 11 of 20. (In case the link doesn't work for you, copy and paste the following URL into your web browser - http://sfc.smallfarmcentral.com/dynamic_content/uploadfiles/258/11%20week%208_17%20Newsletter.pdf

Please, please, please, soak the broccoli, cauliflower and cabbage in salt water before cooking them. We don't spray them and they have lots of hiding spots so they're bound to come with creeby, crawly friends.

Are you ever stumped by the contents of your share? Not quite sure what something is or how to prepare it?

We've created a new page of the web site with photos and descriptions of some of the more unusual products at http://www.avalonfarmshomegrown.net/content/4031. If you're ever stumped, please consult this page and drop us a line if you don't see it listed. We want you to be able to use the produce and it helps us to know what to add.

Thanks!

By the way, please be sure to leave large coolers. If you find produce outside of your cooler, please leave another cooler. Shares will continue to grow with sweet corn and melons coming soon.
