This Photo: This week we harvested some of our winter wheat that we had planted as a cover crop last fall using an old John Deere 55 combine from the 60’s. We plan on using the grain for cover crop seed this coming fall.
The anticipation for a big tomato harvest is really building – everyone on our harvest crew is super excited. We were able to get a few for the farmers’ markets and possibly by the end of the week we may have tomatoes in our boxes. Lettuce is on the verge of being back – but probably not until the end of the week shares. Peppers are starting to come on stronger and we’ll try and get 2 in every box this week.
Kale – Red Russian
Escarole or Radicchio
Taking a Break for the Week:
Onions – except maybe early in the week.
Don’t be Intimidated by Escarole!
Just use it up – it’s yummy!
Please, Please – Tell your friends!
We are still taking signups. In fact, the students are about to head back to College and we count on picking up quite a few CSA members this time of year. So please help us keep doing our good work – spread the word about our CSA to all of your friends and relations!
Thanks so much for your support – Happy August!
