What to do with that Rhubarb continued…

Dear Members,

Tomatoes are ripening though, get ready… And did  mention weeding?

Here’s what’s in the box this week

Full Shares: Roxanne Radish, Garden Sage, Spinach, Rhubarb, Bridger Onion, Siberian Kale, Rainbow Swiss Chard, Strawberries, Cherry or Primo Red Tomatoes
