This Week - Blue Tuesday
Info coming soon!
The unofficial saying this season was "July is the new August." What does that mean now that we are approaching September? Crops came in fast and early this season, which means that they are also going out faster than we typically expect. This last week of August will see many of your summertime favorites, but keep in mind they will not be fresh for long, so now is a great time to stock up and preserve the bounty for winter. Visit the National Center for Home Food Preservation and learn how to freeze, can, dry, pickle, cure and more!
