- Basil: We are blowing out the basil in our covered house this week, and that means a big bag for you. This is definitely your chance to make some pesto for freezing and saving (try making them in to ice cubes for easy portioning and thawing in the future). Of course used fresh it’s the perfect friend for your heirloom tomatoes as well.
- Beans: This is the first of several rounds of fresh beans this summer, so enjoy them your favorite way now or later. You’ll see them for the second time in the next few weeks. This variety this week is called Provider, a delicious and crisp green type bush type.
- Cucumbers: You may see our green-skinned Marketmore cucumbers or white-skinned Silver Slicer cucumbers in your shares over the next several weeks. If you already received a Silver Slicer in the past week, we hope you enjoyed it’s more tender skin and subtle sweetness.
- Eggplant, Japanese: We are starting out with our Orient Express Japanese eggplant this week in the shares. The harvest yields are not quite as high as we hoped, so that means this crop is going out On Rotation. That means some pick-up sites will receive it, and other will not. We keep close records of crops going out on rotation to make sure each member receives the same amount over the course of the season. For those sites not receiving eggplant, you will receive an additional amount of cucumbers.
