CSA: Weekly Share

"Switch Hitter"
As we head into the dog days of summer the hot weather veggies are starting to come in strong. The green peppers, the hot peppers, the eggplant all have become plentiful. Some of the peppers are starting to turn red, but are still more "chocolate" than full color. The melons continue to be strong, but the last patch of sugar babies is over and I think it will be a few days till more are ready. The blackberries have slowed a bit, but honestly, we've picked more blackberries than anyone could have ever imagined! Hope you've been finding some good fun stuff to make with them.
They've picked a few bushels of Doc Martin Limas here and there, but we don't have  a whole lot yet. But once they come in, we will have plenty for everyone. If you want a bushel to "put-up" ask to sign your name to the Doc Martin list. All signs look like it will be a terrific year for those once they are ready. And of course the heirloom tomatoes will continue to come in droves. Such a spectacular year for growing heat loving stuff.
