Beetles, beetles, beetles! Boy we have had a battle with the beetles this year and I am afraid they have won. Of course they take the best and tastiest fruit on the tree or vine. This week will be the last of the peaches and grapes till October.
Ok, while we think we know how to count…We seemed to have an extra box this week…somehow, so if anyone is interested in some extra produce we’ll let it go for $18.
In today’s shares we have O’Henry peaches. These are a firm and full red peach. Also a mix of grapes. Garlic, onion, greens, basil, a sprig of stevia, bell peppers, eggplant, green beans, cherry tomatoes and other mixed veggies.
Stevia is a sweet herb that can be used in smoothies and to sweeten things. It doesn’t take much to make a sweet flavor…A leaf or two is sometimes enough. If you don’t use it all, dry it and save it for later. You will find the stevia in with your basil.
Next week is our last week for summer shares and moving right into fall shares. Time flew by! We will have almonds once again next week, and hopefully pears. Looks like the beefsteak tomatoes will coming on for out last share, as we are now starting to say goodbye the majority of the heirloom tomatoes.
If anyone still has any baskets, don’t forget to return them next week.
