Notes on the box.

Sorry there's no sweet corn as we had expected.  about 25% of this succession was filled out and ready to go, the other was still not quite ready.  Next week for sure!
This week have a beautiful bunch of celery for you.  Fresh and local celery really made me love the stuff.  It's amazingly flavorful and not stringy.  We mince the leaves and put them in dips and salad dressing or bag them in the freezer with other veggie scraps (carrot ends, onion skins and leaves, etc.) to make veggie soup stock once we have a nice amount ready to go.  
This is the last of the cauliflower for a while. 

Cosmic Wheel Creamery Cheese Shares.

Feta and Vega.  Vega is similar to Antares but made in a different form.  Both of these cheeses are great on salads.  If you want to store your Feta for a while, you can unwrap it and put it in a container of brine- 2 tsp of salt in 2 cups of water.
