Notes on the box...
Remember to remove the tops from the carrots before storing to keep them fresh and crisp. There's a carrot top pesto recipe in the week 6 blog post.
Eggplant gets bitter as it sits longer. Try to eat it soon! If you think you don't like it, try cooking it and eating it sooner than later. The freshness makes all the difference with eggplant! Store in an open plastic bag in your crisper to retain moisture.
Remember not to put tomatoes in the fridge unless they are super ripe and you can't get to them right away and plan on cooking them later.
Hungarian hot wax ranges from a bright yellow to a limey green to an orangey red color. They are long and slender, but smaller than the red sweet roasting peppers. Not sure if it's a hot pepper? Taste with caution!

On the farm...
We are excited to invite you and your family out for a Summer cookout on August 16th at the farm. We will be grilling and hope you bring a dish to pass. There will be farm tours and plenty of time and space for kids and adults to explore, sample goodies straight from the field, get to know your farmers, breathe some fresh air, and release your wiggles! We’ll plan on dinner at 6 PM, You can come a little early to explore the farm (around 4 or 5) and feel free to camp out overnight if you’d like. Please let us know if you plan on attending! We are on google maps, just search for Turnip Rock Farm
Our Harvest Party will be September 20th. Another potluck! Mark your calendar! pumpkins to pick, and fall colors.
Sam Karns, a friend and Turnip Rock employee is raising hogs over at his farm nearby and he still has pork for sale! If you're interested in purchasing some for delivery this fall, contact him at firstname.lastname@example.org
