Flushing CSA (Week 12) Update!

Hope everyone enjoyed the red watermelon. More watermelon this week – only orange!  Still has to be stored in the fridge – not on the counter. And the tomatoes are in full swing! And eggplant makes an appearance again.


Wishing all our members a safe and enjoyable Labor Day weekend!
Our VolunteersThank you to last week’s volunteers: Nora, Eustacia and Jason This week’s volunteers are: Amy, Kate and supervisor Caroline


Fruit shares for those who get them. If you have a fruit share but your share partner didn’t sign up for one, please tell the volunteer that you are getting it so that your partner also does not take one by mistake. No Lewis Waite delivery this week.


Hope you had a chance to attend  Flushing Fantastic’s 2019 FNO Community Market this past Saturday.
