Since I’m writing this so late it’s technically Wednesday morning, but I just now got done with sorting and packing the harvest! It’s no secret how hot and dry it’s been and there doesn’t seem to be much relief in sight. This is affecting the green bean harvest quite a bit and we have very few beans this week. The good news is we’ve got the first of the cantaloupe and eggplant and the next round of sweet corn. I guess we can trade one for the others. We’re still irrigating from the ponds but they’ve dropped two to three inches and both the creek and the cistern are bone dry. If we don’t get some rain soon we may be in for some trouble. But we’ll keep pushing forward as best we can!
CSA boxes this week include:
Individual – sweet corn, tomatoes, peaches, peppers, onions and cucumbers
Partial – all of the above in larger quantity, plus yellow zucchini and cantaloupe.
Full – all of the above in larger quantity, plus blackberries and eggplant.
The boxes are definitely getting heavier so be prepared when you pick up!
At the market stands this week we’ll have sweet corn, tomatoes, peaches, peppers, onions, zucchini, yellow squash, cucumbers and a limited amount of cantaloupe, blackberries and eggplant. Hope to see you all out there in the sun!
