Hello all and Happy Delivery Day!

Today’s boxes looked amazing! It was a very eventful morning. The folks from Richmond Confidential came by to say hello. Their trip will be posted online in the next couple of days. Look out for our announcement!

We are so excited about having edamame and wheat grass this week! We would love to hear your thoughts on our adventurous additions to the menu. As always, if you have any suggestions for the menu, feel free to let us know on our Facebook page.

Some tips

The bananas are ripe and ready to be eaten! I suggest definitely using them soon. In order to extend the shelf life of bananas, keep them in the fridge. The skin will quickly turn a dark brown, but the inside of your banana will last much longer. You can also freeze your bananas whole for future banana bread or smoothies.

The pluots are also ripe and delicious! Keep them in the fridge and they will last up to 5 days. Put them in the freezer, and they will last up to a year!

  • To freeze pluots: (1) Wash and leave whole or cut in halves or quarters and remove pit; (2) In a saucepan, combine 2 3/4 cups sugar and 4 cups water, mix until the solution is clear, and bring to a boil; (3) Cool the syrup and pour over plums; (4) Place plums and syrup in covered airtight containers or heavy-duty freezer bags

Have an awesome week and try to stay cool! Eat your daily amount of fruits and veggies to help stay hydrated 🙂
