Hi Folks,

Well we made it. Believe it or not we reached the half way point of this seasons CSA. That’s right week 12 of the 24 week season. I’m sure you noticed the change of season in your weekly share from fresh crisp greens early in the season to tomatoes and peppers of mid-summer. Tomatoes will continue to be a part of your CSA for several weeks along with the occasional sweet pepper or 2 and eggplant . As we head into September you will start to notice some of the spring items again as the weather cools and changes the growing season. We will continue to try to stretch summer into September as well as try to provide some of the fall crops like sweet potatoes and winter squash. I love the change of seasons and the change of produce.

Planted this week: Purple and orange carrots for fall, succession crops of spicy greens and lettuce. Fall zucchini.

In your shares this week: Tomatoes, Blue Potatoes (we grew these a couple of years ago, they are really good), Green Beans, Carrots, Lettuce Mix, Green Onions, and a small bit of Basil.

A big thank you to all members for supporting our small farm and the local food movement!

Jim
