First day of Summer Approaches: June 21, 2017
And we're starting early with watermelons!
CSA members got watermelons this week!
Watermelons are a great summertime snack. This juicy fruit, about 92 percent water, is a refreshing bite on a hot summers day. In addition to getting hydrated with each bite, you get loads of Vitamin A, B6, C, antioxidants and amino acids while only eating about 40 calories per cup.
This watermelon photo is by Nate from the day he harvested the first set for the farm crew to taste. Look at that pattern!
Ridge to Reef Farm serves the US Virgin Islands with certified organic produce grown with sustainable permaculture practices (and a lot of love).
