I did some taste testing of the lettuce, and what do you know, the ones advertised as good in hot weather didn't taste too bad! Hopefully you agree.
I was ashamed to learn that one of my members *purchased* kale last week! I think that is a real CSA farmer fail. I promise not to let you down in the kale department again!
So many tomatoes are *so* close to being ripe. The cherry tomatoes are ready to burst, and some of you will get some this week, and the juane flamme variety is starting to ripen as well--so a few of you will get some of those.
The beans are definitely slowing down, and the peas are done, but never fear, the summer squash and the cucumbers are growing like crazy (a big relief, I know). I know there are a ton of zucchini recipes out there, but also keep in mind you can grate it and freeze it in quantities just right for zucchini bread, or whatever your favorite (?) way to consume it is.
In this weeks share: lettuce mix, cherry tomatoes! (for some), tomatoes! (for some - jaune flamme), kale, garlic, basil, carrots, potatoes, beans, summer squash, cucumbers.
