In your share this week:
- Boc Choi - last of the season
- Garlic Scapes
- Swiss Chard
There are many new crops that are on the verge of being ready to harvest. We are hoping they'll be ready in two week, maybe three: cilantro, carrots, golden beets, zucchini, fresh garlic, and romain lettuce heads. A lot of good things to look forward to.
I just came in from weeding the zucchini and squash plants today. There are oodles of baby zucchini on the plants. They range from 1 to 4 inches long. And I saw one baby squash. I couldn't help but comment "They are so cute!" Then it occured to me that I probably won't be thinking they are "cute" by the end of the season. You know what they saw about zucchini... Good thing we have pigs.
Next week's CSA delivery will be one day ealier. We will deliver your produce on Tuesday, July 3rd, same places, same times. This is a one time change. Deliveries will return to the normal Wednesday schedule the following week, July 11th. Your share will be a little smaller next week because we won't be harvesting on Wednesday, July 4th. We are choosing this option instead of taking the entire week off. We think this is a nice compromise for us, our workshares, and the CSA members. You still get a little bit of fresh veggies, and we get to enjoy the holiday with friends and family.
Have a great week and ENJOY your veggies!
