We have had our first significant pest issue of the season and unfortunately it effects our sweet corn. Over the past weekend and through the beginning of this week several local raccoon families have been dining in our sweet corn fields each night. They do an immense amount of damage to the stalks and ears and have essentially wiped out our 2nd planting. I'm hoping to get the population in check before the 3rd planting begins to ripen next week.
Most of the other crops are fairing much better and we will have hefty totes again this week
This week's shares include:
- Red Potatoes
- Zucchini / Summer Squash
- Green Pepper
- Jalapeno Pepper
There are two new recipes added this week, one that utilizes the potatoes, chives, and basil and another one that uses the zucchini/summer squash, potatoes, and basil. We had the Herb Roasted Summer Vegetables for dinner on Monday and it was awesome.
