Oh Hail.

Beautiful morning here, the sun is shining and birds are singing. But my oh my, it has been a wet week at the farm and cooler than I would like in August... Dark clouds, thunder, pounding rains and a few hail storms have rolled through our valley this week. Hail is harsh, and luckily a lot of our farm is mostly planted in roots so the crops underground are just fine but some tender things growing above ground... the cucurbits, beans and the newly seeded and  transplanted greens for Fall harvests were tore up. Poor leaves... 

I'm hoping the greens will rebound in the next week or so... time will tell. 

Luckily some of the greens were hiding under row cover and are a-ok. So this week marks the return of salad greens and mustard mix. Enjoy! 

The tomatoes have started ripening slower with this cooler weather but are still loaded with fruit... 

The dahlias are blooming AND my experimental planting of outdoor peppers are impressing me. We have Sweet Chocolate peppers ripening... yes! Look for these as well as bells in this week's share. 

This week's harvest includes:
Salad Greens
Mustard Greens
Kale or Collards
Red Cabbage
Heirloom Tomatoes
Sweet Peppers
Hot Peppers
Rattlesnake Beans
Walla Walla Onion

I look forward to seeing everybody this afternoon. Have a beautiful day!
