Easily freeze clean, dry sage in a freezer bag for up to 6 months. Lemon Cucumber, Spray Free It is delicately sweet and is less acidic than it's green cousin.

Heirloom Tomatoes, Spray Free A mix of heirloom tomatoes gives you more varieties to try! The season is winding down, so get these gems while you can.

Smear it with some natural peanut butter and sprinkle with raisins for an afternoon kick. Loosely cover with plastic and store in your crisper. Melon,Spray Free Whether it's watermelon or cantaloupe, it's a late Summer staple. Melons should live on your counter until cut, then once you've cut into it, wrap the remainder in plastic and it should keep in the fridge for about 3 days. If you find yourself with more melon than you can eat before it spoils, freeze it. Cut into cubes, tossing with 1/4 cup of sugar for each 2 cups of fruit if desired, and store in an airtight container. Corn, Organic This bi-colour variety is smaller than the famous Fred, but sweet and flavourful! Store corn in the husk on a lower shelf in your fridge. Enjoy within two weeks.

Store them in the crisper in a plastic bag, they should last you two-three weeks. Remove leaves before storing. Try this week's Lemony Beet Hummus recipe. Red Onions, Organic These onions are lovely for burgers, sandwiches or salads. Don't like the strong flavour of raw onions? Try soaking them in a bowl of cold water before: slice onions, soak for 10 minutes, stiring a couple times, drain, pat dry and use. Store your onions in a cool dry place in a single layer (but not in plastic), they will last you a few weeks. Potatoes, Organic A tasty selection of Fingerlings, Creamers and Linzers - it's a surprise what you get! These potatoes are so versatile you can roast, boil or bake them and you can't go wrong.
