Fall is in the air, can you feel it? Maybe I’m just being hopeful after a summer that seemed to last an eternity…. but I’m crossing my fingers that we are headed for cool weather, fire pits and cozy sweaters.
My heavens! what a windstorm/cold front that was! Hopefully your home avoided any damage from fallen trees or ripped off shingles. That wind sure wreaked havoc on the poor garden this week. But luckily we have a lot of root crop/ hardy veggies that were ready and escaped the wicked wind.
On that note we have for you in shares this week…..
We are really getting into the fall spirit over here at the garden. We have a bunch of new starts going in and a lot of beginning fall harvest coming out and going in your basket. I think you will be quite happy with today’s harvest.
What a CRAZY random thunderstorm we had this last week! But on the bright side fall is almost officially here. There is almost a hint of it on the wind today. (Or it’s my hopeful mind playing tricks on me because I am so done with this heat wave.)
And be sure to grab a melon out of the crate there wasn’t room in the actual basket.
Today is our last week for the summer CSA shares and we can’t thank you enough for supporting us through this crazy 2020 summer.
If you have a 2020 fall share it will begin next Thursday, no break in between.
Last hurrah for summer baskets comes with
Please be sure to return any baskets or berry containers you make have so we can sanitize them and use them again for the next shares.
Extras! With the excessive heat the past week we ended up with a lot of split, sun scalded and well… not so pretty peppers, eggplant and tomatoes. They will still be great to cook, make salsa or whatever. We have a large basket full for your taking.
White peaches are on! We handle these delicate peaches so carefully because they bruise easily. Please please please handle them with as much love as we have! The color is not like regular peaches. They have a slight green yellow hue. They are ripe. Eat right away as they do not keep.
