Hoping everyone had a fun and safe 4th of July holiday. I sure did by playing cornhole and watching fireworks at the Lebanon Valley Mall. I played cronhole for 3 hours straight and received a pretty good sun burn but at least I won three games! This is the time of year that you want to apply sunblock when you go outside. Especially when you are in the sun for awhile in the PYO sections. Sun damage can happen fast and will still happen on cloudy days!
Excited about what you make with our veggies?
Share it on our Facebook page! This is a great way to share recipes and cooking experiences with other shareholders. Use recipes that you find, ones that we post on our newsletter, or one that you just made up! Post a picture of your creation on our Facebook page with the ingredients and directions.

Last weekend was our last week of blueberry season. There are still more blueberries, so if you did not receive your season limit now is your last chance.
Snap Pea Season
We are letting our snap peas up for one more week. This is your last chance to harvest snap peas for the season. The plants are getting old and starting to turn brown but there are still a few peas hanging around! Harvest as much as you like :)

- Blueberries - storage: cover and keep refrigerated.
- Lettuce - storage: if in a plastic bag make sure you poke holes throughout the bag and keep in the hydrator drawer of your refrigerator. Or invest in a Produce Keeper that can be found on Amazon, they work very well.
Directions: preheat oven to 300 degrees F. Line baking sheets with parchment paper. Remove stems of kale. Place in bowl, drizzle with olive oil, sprinkle with salt and massage into leaves. Add pepper to taste and spread kale out in single layer on baking sheets. Place in oven and bake for 10-15 minutes or until kale is dry and crispy and barely browned on edges.
