Cucumber – The classic slicing cucumber ‘Marketmore” is great for just about any dish. We’ve been eating cucumber salad
nightly. Occasionally you may see some scratches from the pesky cucumber beetles but it is superficial. Can be stored without
plastic in your crisper drawer for a couple days. If you don’t use up quickly putting it in the same bag with the squash helps keep
them fresh.

Broccoli- We harvest at a medium/small size to avoid bolting in the unusual June heat. This is a fresh eating variety or great chopped
up in a favorite dish. Best to store these in plastic in the fridge. And a reminder, don’t throw away those stems they are very tasty
peeled  sliced up thin and stir-fried and taste just like broccoli!

Summer Squash- A classic of summer can be added to almost any meal. Great for a quick sauté, wonderful in stir fry or even baked
into a gratin. Patty Pan’s are adorable little squash that have little scalloped edges like a pie (or a flying saucer). Great for a quick
sauté, wonderful in stir fry or pasta sauce. Shred these into a veggie hash to easily use them up. Store in plastic for longest storage.

Potatoes – New Potatoes! Red Norlands have the classic red skin exterior and creamy white interior. Perfect for potato salad. Because they are so
new, their skins are prone to being scuffed off. We’ve washed these quickly to avoid over peeling them so you may want to give these a quick rinse
(but don’t scrub) before use. Enjoy in your favorite potato salad, or roasted in the oven or grill. These are best used more quickly than storage
potatoes, store in a cool, dark cupboard or your fridge as needed.

Kale – Nashes Green variety. There are a lot of great kale salad recipes out there if you don’t want to turn the stove on! Remove the greens from
the stems and cook the stems separately as they need more time to be tender. Store in a bag to keep fresh.

Genovese Basil- A classic Italian basil variety. This is very aromatic. With complex notes of clove and licorice it is warm and peppery at the same
time. The leaves bruise easily, so we don’t wash these before delivery. This basil did experience the storms so does need a rinse before use. Basil is
cold temperature sensitive, so put the stems in a little water and cover loosely with a plastic bag on your counter until ready to use.

Cabbage – Red Cabbage called Red Express. It’s a medium sized cabbage that will store for a while if you don’t have an immediate use for it.
Though it will be great for coleslaw! We always have a small bowl of slaw in the fridge for sandwiches or tacos. Store in the fridge.
