It just keeps getting better....

For this month's exchange, our members shared: Green and red tomatoes, peppers, Meyer lemons, sour oranges, walnuts, tangerines, pomegranates, rosemary, persimmons, basil, banana bread and sage. I tried a persimmon for the first time ever in a green salad with pomegranate dressing and it was fabulous! Someone recommended that I try dried persimmon-that it's like candy! Let me know what you did with your items if you get a chance!

Our October and November 2010 Exchanges!

As usual we had a great exchange of veggies, fruit and herbs! We shared pears, eggplant, basil, green onions, zucchini, green tomatoes, roma tomatoes and more! Three MercedShares members went to the farm tour for the TD Willey Community Supported Agriculture(CSA) and it was so inspiring to see where they grow our food and how they grow it. Then we went and had delicious fresh pressed pomegranate juice at the farm next door.

Our next exchange happens on Saturday, November 20.

Don't forget to set your clocks back one hour on Sunday, November 7!
