As July transitions into August, we reach the penultimate moment of summer as a bounty of crops seemingly ripen at once—juicy tomatoes, summer squashes, plump berries and more. Thus, this week’s box pays tribute to the summer harvest with a beautiful assortment of local produce including Cipollini onions, baby fennel and fresh blueberries, plus a rustic bread loaf with sun-dried tomatoes and our own colorful ratatouille casserole. Bon appetit!
