Share Menu and Green Thumb

Hello Members!
 
Astoria made it through the storm and we are hoping that all of our members had very little trouble last week! That being said, our farmer Bill is still without power in his home but Green Thumb is up and running and delivering this Tuesday! Please note that the shares will be larger this week and the next to make up for last week's missed delivery.

Using Your Share - Early October

It is early October and we are still getting fresh tomatoes and summer squash. Come January, we'll be wishing we had them again but right now I'm sure a lot of you are wondering what to do with the bounty! For starters, I found an excellent change of pace in this recipe from one of my favorite blogs, Smitten Kitchen: http://smittenkitchen.com/blog/2007/12/ratatouille-tart/ and it is easy to find store bought puff pastry these days.
