Week of May 29th

Happiest Memorial day to all. We are remembering and honoring people who have died while serving in Armed Forces and super thankful to everyone that’s helped keep this country free.
I’m also thinking about all the workers here on the farm who don’t really get to celebrate many holidays throughout the year. These guys work 50+ hours a week regardless of the weather to make sure we are getting amazing food that is affordable. Enjoy!
We had to substitute green zucchini for cauliflower. At the last minute I was informed that what was left of the cauliflower crop had all turned yellow.
