Farm update for the week of July 3rd

Posted 7/4/2017 3:33pm by Jeff Schrimmer.

Here's this week's message from our farmer:

Hi everyone, Happy Fourth of July!

We have a wonderful share for you this week. The peas continue to come in and we have carrots; peas and carrots just like my mom served us out of a can (not!). Also new for this week are cucumbers; we have some Kirby (pickle type), English (long slender, burpless and mostly seedless) and some regular slicers. You will get some of each type in the coming weeks.

We also have fresh sweet onions with the tops still on. You can use the tops to make soup stock if you are so ambitious. They don’t keep well, so use them up soon. You’ll be getting lots more that are better keepers soon. Peppers, eggplant and potatoes are coming soon and tomatoes too (although not soon enough!)

The share for this week will be: Lettuce (2 heads for premium shares), kale, carrots, Swiss chard, peas, summer squash, broccoli or kohlrabi or Napa cabbage, cucumbers, and sweet onions. Fennel and an herb for the premium shares.

(note: Downtown Harvest is a Premium Share CSA)

Enjoy!
Farmer John

Hello Everyone, So it continues to rain and I continue to worry; it’s an occupational hazard I guess…  We got 2 inches last week and thunderstorms are rolling through as I sit down t
