Week 8 of Summer Shares

Hot Hot Hot! Boy, it’s hot out there.

Ya, we are celebrating the heat with a mix of HOT peppers! Time for making some salsa!

We have a lot going on here. Tory, our senior doe goat is due today, the pumpkin and winter squash patch is in full swing, weeds and all. The corn for fall shares is lookin’ pretty darn good. Many root crops have gone in the week. Yup, no rest in the shade with iced tea for us farming folk this week.

This week we have a extra odds and ends. A little this, a little that. When you come into the cool room you see a couple baskets with some mixed produce. Squash, eggplant, Chinese noodle beans and some fruit bags. Choose two items to add to your share.

What you will find in your shares this week:

Cherry tomatoes

Slicing tomatoes

Garlic

Mix of hot peppers

Eggplant

Green beans (and a few purple)

Walla Walla onion

Micro-greens

Figs

Cucumber

Plums

Herb pack (parsley, rosemary, tarragon)

New produce next week. Tomatillos, Elberta Peaches and patty pan squash.

Two more week of summer shares ending on August 9th. There is a two week break and then fall shares begin August 30th. We have a couple spots open for fall. We strive to have a different winter squash each week and this year we will have sweet corn!

Specialty herbs in the shop

The baskets are beautiful this week! I’m pretty sure we just about hit every color in the rainbow. And they are practically overflowing on the floor. Can’t get much better than that

We have a fantastic new product we just got in! By popular demand we are starting to carry BEE WRAPS! It’s a cloth that has been soaked in beeswax and is a great alternative to plastics for covering your food. All you have to do is set it over (or wrap up) what ever food you want to keep fresh and the heat of your your hand will melt the wax enough to seal it. Super easy to wash too just warm water and dish soap. There are 8 different sizes too!

Baskets

  • Bagel peaches
  • Santa Rosa plums
  • Cucumber
  • Walla walla onion
  • Carrots
  • Bell peppers
  • Tomatoes
  • Kale
  • Green beans
  • PLEASE RETURN ANY BASKETS YOU HAVE!
