This week we have:
- 4 quarts of yellow peaches
- 2 quarts of Paula Red apples which are an early MacIntosh variety
- 1 quart of nectarines
- 6 ears of corn
- 4 Bell peppers
- 3 sweet frying peppers
- 3 or 4 beets (depending on size)
- 7 pounds of tomatoes
- 3 Black Prince heirloom tomatoes (shown here in the very front)
Tips on storage:
Early season apples should be kept refrigerated to maintain their crispness.
Tomatoes should never be refrigerated unless they are cut and unused. Wherever possible I try not to cut a larger tomato than I will finish in a salad or recipe. Tomatoes also keep best when placed with the stem side down.
Enjoy! —Rebecca Melick
