CSA Harvest - Week 13

Good morning,

It feels like Summer made a serious return this week and the heat has had me questioning what month it is. Then a slightly cool and crisp breeze will brush my cheek and remind me it's September, mmm September.

September always feels so comforting...  it brings the most bountiful and beautiful harvests of the season but also reminds you a frost is near. We are constantly harvesting in the gardens right now and sometimes it is hard to keep up. I have been reminding myself to smile and savor it as the cold weather could sneak up on us at any moment. Savor it.

On Monday, amidst the harvest madness, we planted the last round of greens in the garden. Head lettuce, bok choy, kale and spinach. Now that the temperatures are cooler and the days are getting shorter the crops begin to grow slower so this is an experimental planting, we'll see if they're ready by the last week of the CSA.

OK, onto the bounty that will be in the CSA Shares this week. Warning, the cherry tomato harvests are getting wild, please be prepared for a lot this week! The following produce will be in this week's share:

Cherry Tomatoes
Summer Squash
Sweet Peppers
Head Lettuce
Melons (Cantaloupe and Honeydew)
Green Beans
Cilantro or Basil
Mini Onions

I am so grateful to be growing food for you all and we are planning to host a potluck on the farm in the near future. Stay tuned!
