September 7 or 10

Share this week includes:  1 kabocha squash, 2 pounds of satina potatoes, 1 pound of sweet peppers, 1 pint of edamame, 2 pounds of onions, 1/2 pound of garlic.

Storage:  squash and garlic can be kept on your counter out of direct sunlight.  Peppers can be kept out too if you're going to eat them in the next couple days.  The onions can be kept out but will keep longer in the fridge (up to 2 months) and they don't burn your eyes as much when you cut into them if they are cold.

For the next couple weeks, we are in a lull with harvest.  The high temperatures of late July combined with the rain made it impossible for us to seed and plant for a couple weeks so now is when that is felt.  Your box this week and next will have a lot of vegetables that you can use over the next few weeks.  The garlic will keep until the new year if you keep you it in a dry, dark, cool place (not the refrigerator).  The kabocha squash is good now but will be great in 2 to 4 more weeks.  It is great baked and eaten plain but also makes a delicious pie.
