Fruits of Labor 8/18
The watermelons and melons are looking good. We’re growing red and yellow fleshed varieties of watermelon. It’s very possible watermelons will be ready and available for next weeks share. Don’t hold me to the wall on this one, but there is a good chance. If not this coming share, definitely the following share. If not the following share, then you can hold me up against the wall…
We are continuing to bring in record tomato harvests. Our cool room is loaded to the gills with heirlooms, saladette’s and cherry tomatoes. The farm crew is looking pretty buff these days and we’re debating whether to share our buffness with yinz in some artistic photography featuring tomatoes and biceps… The big harvests are not going to last too long though. Disease is spreading rapidly with this wet weather. We’re hoping for a couple more weeks of field heirloom tomatoes. Field red tomatoes are just starting and they’re looking very nice. Field Paste tomatoes will be ready in approximately 2 weeks so if you don’t want to use heirlooms for salsa, stewed tomatoes or sauce, we’ll have pastes which make delicious tomato products.
FYI We are ready to offer bulk heirloom and cherry tomatoes this coming share 8/25. Heirloom’s and Cherry’s will be $2/#.
Nuts and Bolts
Sadly no recipe this week. Maybe some of you can share some new ones with me. Thank you all so much. Have a great week.
