So there aren’t many blueberries at the farm now, but there are lots of fabulous tomatoes!!!, peaches, corn, sundry greens, new squash harvest (the second crop is ready), cukes, beautiful eggplants, peppers, onions, broccoli, radishes, etc. Now I cannot be sure
what you will get in your box, because it varies from day to day, but I know in the next few weeks you will see all of it. We had our first meal of broccoli and it didn’t disappoint. Now that it is ready, Faith will be requesting broccoli soup for every meal!
I will be trying to get some salsa put by next week, as it is always best, and easiest to can tomatoes at their peak…not in September when they are declining both in quantity and quality. The onions are amazing; the sweet Spanish seem especially sweet this year. We just started harvesting the Early Mac apples. They are nice and tangy—perfect for munching in the car! The Paula Reds are soon to follow.
If you are canning tomatoes, please contact me this week so we can get your order to you.
To illustrate how I don’t always know what will appear in your box, and what may appear in your box, last week many (not all) of you received kohlrabi. Guess how I found out some of you got it? Well, how handy are our camera phones these days? Anyway, if you get some weird looking bulb thing in green of purple, it’s probably kohlrabi 😉
