Farm Update- Week of July 22

Posted 7/23/2019 4:31pm by Jeff Schrimmer.

Here is this week's message from Farmer John Krueger:

Hello Folks,

So we have survived the heat wave although it has taken a bit of a toll on some of the crops. Primarily the lettuce has been damaged- we have lost hundreds of heads. But this may be good news for those of you who have been struggling to use 2 heads of lettuce a week! Now the question is how much rain are we going to get!

At last check the rain gauge had 3 ½ inches with more heavy rain forecast into Tuesday. Yet in spite of it all we have another wonderful share for you this week. The tomatoes are ripening profusely! We have a lot of several small varieties (most of the earliest varieties are small). One of these small types is called Aosto valley and it has a rather strange shape- sort of square and lobed. The catalog says it is really good for stewed tomatoes so if that’s something you like, you may want to give it a try. Some groups will get small tomatoes and others will receive slicers; next week we will switch it up. We also have peppers and one more round of cauliflower.

The full share for this week will be: Lettuce, summer squash, cukes, fennel, kale,rainbow carrots, white onions, beans, peppers, tomatoes, eggplant and choice of an herb (cilantro, dill or parsley). There will also be some summer savory and tomatillos as extras.
