CSA: Weekly Share

We are just getting into the "meat" of our growing season. Cantaloupes started to come in last week and now they are coming in like gang-busters! We have 3 kinds, 2 of which are heirloom varieties. The large are a more regular musk melon-type. We also have a "striper" that is delicious and then the "sugar cubes" which are the cute, teeny ones I mentioned last week. You are welcome to take a couple of the sugar cubes for one of the larger ones in your share.
Green beans are taking a break, it will be up to a week before we have them again. Eggplant made the list this week. We have 7-8 kinds, so feel free to try different ones to see what is your favorite. I think mostly it is the shape that is different on eggplants, but if anyone notices a big difference in taste, please let us know so we can tell others the difference.
Our blackberries are producing like mad this year. We put them into the green pint containers (usually we only sell the berries in 1/2 pints) to get folks to take notice and buy a larger portion. Must be time to make a blackberry-peach crisp!
By the way, although the peaches we sell come from Glen Willow Orchards in Avondale, they are outstanding right now! So sweet and juicy.
As always, enjoy your share! We look forward to seeing you at the farm.
