The Boxes are Here!

This morning, around 4:20 am, we received a special delivery on our porch. The boxes were here! Here is what was inside: For all of you list makers (like me :)), here is the list: 2 Valencia Oranges, 4 Jonagold Apples, 3 Fuji Apples, 1.5lb Autumn Royal Grapes, 5 Black…

The Fridge is Bare…

The last jar of lettuce will become salad for dinner and then…guess what! We used it all!! The refrigerator is bare! Time for a farm delivery! Stay tuned for Produce Prep Tuesday!
