- Cucumbers: Our first planting of cucumbers is showing signs of disease, and is therefore not allowing us to harvest enough cucumbers to distribute them to all members this week. We will be distributing the first planting of cucumbers on a rotation, starting with all Tuesday pick-up sites today. The second planting of cucumbers is looking strong and we plan to distribute cucumbers to all share at the same time in few weeks when the second planting is ready for harvest.
- Summer Squash: With the hot weekend weather our summer squash sized up nicely and are perfect for slicing up, brushing with oil and throwing on the grill.
- Tomatoes: With the hot weekend weather our New Girl slicing tomatoes have began ripening up, and we will be delivering the first tastes of those this week in your share. There will be many more tomatoes in the weeks to come, including both delicious slicers and a variety of heirlooms
