Hello, everyone. I hope members are happy to see greens in their shares again. There will be more to come. Sorry to have to say that there will be no more tomatoes for the year. We have had bad luck with the later plantings. Hope all aren't too upset, I know how wonderful fresh local tomatoes can be compared to those at the store. We will try to make up for it with a good fall harvest.
I have thrown up the raised bed this week with the tractor for the fall planting of strawberries. We will be laying black plastic soon for them and will plant the 1/4 acre of berries around the third week in Sept.
The Sweet Dumpling winter squash is one that is similar to the Delicate winter squash, if any members are familiar with that one. Prepare it the same as you have been the Butternut or the Acorn.
I hope you have been enjoying the peppers this year, as I have been enjoying growing new varieties.
What to look forward to...
We will have snap beans for next week, as they are soooo close to being ready but not quite there yet this week. More greens as mentioned, as well as radishes next week. It seems like we still may have another week of blueberries in shares as well, which also means that members are still encouraged to come out to the patch and pick. Thanks again all, and please let me know if you have any questions. Elise.
