Share items for September 25th

Farm news: the tomato bounty continues. This is the latest, in the past, that we’d ever included tomatoes in our CSA share. This year we think they will continue to be in the share for at least a few more weeks. Wow!

We’re preparing for our festival and hoping for good weather. There is still time to enter the cookoff at noon either Sat or Sun! Details are on our website www.gardenofevefarm.com/garlic-festival.htm.

Gleaning is Sunday Sept 26 from 10am-noon. Come at 10am sharp if possible, we head out to the fields and pick some items we have left to donate to those less fortunate than we are. After we harvest it, the Long Island Cares truck takes it away to food pantries across Long Island. Each year we donate thousands of pounds of produce. Come out and join us for this biblical ritual which still makes a difference to people, even today!
