Summer - Week 16, 9/14 & 9/17

Hello all.  When you pull into the driveway today, try to stay on the gravel area for as much as possible.  Pull in to a parking spot and then back all the way out to the gravel before turning.  It's pretty sloppy and the ruts are becoming deeper as people turn around in the grass.  Thanks.

If you are short on a veggie or have any requests for next week, let me know.  We harvested winter squash a few weeks ago.  Unfortunately there is not a lot of it due to the early hot, dry weather, followed by the extremely wet weather.  And what did make it is small.  I will probably have enough for everyone to have 2 squash and will start distributing them next week or so.

Today's share is still being harvested and is projected to contain:
  1. Lettuce - Romaine, Buttercrisp or baby salad mix
  2. Beans
  3. Collards or kale - some of this is from the hoop.  Those plants are huge and tender.  Kale = Winterbor or Red Russian.  Saturday might also include Lacinato (Dinosaur).  Collards = Variegated or Champion.
  4. Onions
  5. Garlic
  6. Sweet Peppers
  7. Spicy Peppers
  8. Tomatoes
  9. Eggplant or squash or okra or tomatillos (depending on availability).  The summer squash is now done.
  10. Komatsuna Summerfest or choi or tat soi
  11. Basil
  12. Parsley
  13. Melons - If you've already had 2 (or 1 if you're a half-share member), please leave the melons for other members (unless the board says otherwise).
  14. Sorrel.  I used about 1 cup of this in a beef stew the other night in place of lemon zest.  It wasn't quite as strong as zest but worked nicely.
  15. Maybe beets or carrots
  16. Herbs - including some cilantro that is flowering but is still good for salsa.  Some might include seed pods (green coriander).  Sage, Oregano, rosemary.
  17. U-Pick flowers - Up to 20 stems from the flower garden.
