Share items for August 21, 24

Farm news: We’re preparing for our Garlic Festival this weekend 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 October 16 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!

Share items for Sept 21, 24:
1 bu carrots
1 head lettuce
2 kohlrabi
1 lg or 2 small large onion
1 bu kale
1 Qt potatoes
Italian hot peppers

Fruit share: 1 lb plums, 1 lb Bartlett pears, 3 lb Bosc Pears. Note:
It can be difficult to tell when Bosc Pears are ripe, because they DO
NOT change color when ripe. Leave them out of the fridge for 2-3 days
until they soften slightly. Touch them daily and smell them to see if
they are ripe, then use.

Flower share: zinnias, goldenrod, sunflowers, celosia, etc.
Egg share: ½ dozen pastured eggs
