Howdy folks and welcome to week 9 of your CSA! It's really starting to taste like summer around here and this week's box is a reflection of that. We've got summer squash and zucchini coming out of our ears, Walla Walla onions that are sweeter than ever, and basil that's more fragrant than any we've ever grown! We're really happy with the first of the fennel that we've pulled out of the ground this season and we hope you enjoy it as much as we do. The beets are really healthy this week and their greens are on point so don't toss those out!
It's a great time of the year to fire up the bbq and everything on this week's harvest list is great when cooked simply over an open flame (even the chard is great on the grill!) We hope everyone enjoys the flavors of the season and gets to slow down a bit and enjoy a meal with family or friends.
This past week we've put in some long hours getting the upper field tilled in, composted and ready for our fall brassicas. We're still seeding weekly in the greenhouse but the list is growing smaller with each passing week which we love!!! As we get closer to August most everything will be in the ground and then it's all maintenance from there on out. Even though the days have been grueling we're really proud of the harvest and hope you all are too!
Happy CSA delivery day everyone!
