Please note that from time to time you may receive different items in your box than what is on the list. This is due to the natural growing process and at times we may experience shortages of specific produce, and may have substituted the items for other produce.**You may notice that the tips of your ears of sweet corn may look “dried out” but this is actually a physio-logical problem that occurs with this particular variety of sweet corn. The corn still tastes wonderful, it just looks a little different than normal. Planting is often a learning experience for us, and while we will enjoy this variety for now, we will not be planting it again next year!
