The first week of August has blessed us with our most colorful box of the season! Tomatoes are coming in (slowly but they're coming!) and we finally have enough to harvest for all of the boxes!! We cannot tell you all how stressful/frustrating it is when we don't have enough to fulfill all the shares. When it comes to certain crops (like tomatoes, peppers, eggplants) they begin to produce slowly and there is always this moment of "will this crop ever start cranking or is something wrong?" We have this thought every year and always have to remind ourselves to be patient. This summer has been so different from last summer and these hot weather crops are extra slow so our patience has been tested to the max! Moral of the story...good things come to farmers who wait. And this week we are proud to have an abundance of cucumbers, peppers, potatoes, greens, squash, zucchini and finally...tomatoes!
We hope this week you all enjoy some time cooking and eating with your family and friends. Cheers to the harvest.
