Thanks to our recent sunny days and warm temps, the gardens are continuing to deliver gorgeous summer produce even as we approach fall—enjoy the bounty of the harvest this week with everything from colorful frying peppers, artichokes and tomatoes to juicy grapes, Italian plums and ripe, locally-grown melon. Also included in this bright box: Fresh baguette bread, a crisp Rosé wine and addictively-crunchy almond snacks, as well as edible flower blossoms and more earthy Chanterelle mushrooms. Enjoy!
