Week #6

Dear CSA Member,

We hope everyone had a wonderful 4th of July! It sure was a hot one, but we seem to be breaking the heat wave. As the lettuce winds down the summer vegetables are starting to ramp up. It is just about peak harvest for the summer squash, and the cucumbers and eggplant will soon follow. As we pick, wash and pack for your weekly CSA shares we are still planning, seeding new vegetables and preparing the fields for fall crops. Such as lettuces, kale and more. The weather has been pretty cooperative allowing us to get a lot of work done. We hope you enjoy this weeks bounty.
