- Beans: Enjoy fresh Strike green beans one last time this summer. A perfect match with this week’s sweet corn and tomatoes.
- Corn: Time for corn soup, corn salsa, and corn the way you like it because we have another big week in the works. Our plantings of Temptation, Sugar Pearl, and Luscious are all popping after last week’s ample rain followed by the current heat.
- Onions, Cortland: This week we make the switch to “storage” type onions. Storage onions are harvested in late August and cured (dried down), to be given out throughout the rest of the season. Our yellow storage onion this year is a variety called Cortland. Whole onions are best stored in a cool, dark place in the kitchen, and leftover pieces are best kept in an airtight container in the refrigerator.
