Week 4 Shares

Our hot summer continues!  Hope everyone was able to find some shade this past weekend when we had the 100+ heat index days.  We spent the weekend and Monday in Washington DC and Philadelphia on college visits and doing some quick sight seeing.  Lots of water breaks and stops at air conditioned buildings!

The heat has the accelerated the blackberry ripening and we started picking this morning!  Wednesday shareholders will be the beneficiaries of the first picking today and Thursday/Friday shareholders will start seeing theirs next week. 

We dug the first row of red potatoes yesterday, as I have mentioned before, they are one of my favorite crops to grow and harvest.   Whether boiled and tossed with butter, salt, and parsley or mashed as in this recipe mashed reds, they are delicious!

The raccoons made their first visit to the sweet corn last night, they "tested" 4 ears but found it wasn't quite ripe yet.  Traps are going out tonight!!

  • Lettuce
