Dear CSA Member,
It has been HOT! Thankfully we had a nice rain shower the other night to prepare the fields for another heatwave. Here on the farm, we have been working away transplanting fall crops along with a lot of weeding. All the vegetables have to be hand weeded which is a never-ending task. This weeks share will feel more like summer as the tomatoes are just starting to ripen.
Enjoy the harvest!
