CSA Harvest - Week 11

Good morning, 

I am prepping for the CSA Harvest, enjoying a cup of coffee and admiring the beautiful morning sky. Such a great way to start the day!

This week's CSA Share will include the following produce:

Salad Greens
Kale, Chard or Collards
Bok Choy
Summer Squash
Green Beans
Heirloom Tomatoes
Cherry Tomatoes
Fava Beans or Eggplant

The fall crops are starting to show off as well. Here is a photo of a gorgeous Carnival winter squash and below you can see the potatoes, carrots, cabbages and brussels sprouts are all looking happy. Its hard not to just think about the hot crops (tomatoes, peppers, eggplant, etc) this time of the year... but  to insure we have food after the frosts come we need to be caring for and talking to these fall crops now.  

OK, back to summer mode. We did harvest a couple melons this week! Three French Charentais melons slipped right off the vine, fragrant as ever and ready for eating. They were heavenly and I cannot wait for more to ripen so I can include them in the CSA shares soon!
