2018 harvest 11

 Howdy folks and welcome to week 11 of your Tumbleweed Farm share. We hope that you all are able to stay cool with this intense heat. Temps at the farm have reached the triple digits multiple days in a row and it's definitely not good for the crops. We're hoping that certain things will bounce back but the heat has started to take its toll out in the field. Looking ahead it sounds like things will start to cool off mid week. Fingers crossed that stays accurate. A major bonus would be some much needed rain.   On a lighter note, this weeks box is similar to last week but we hope that's alright with you. The chard and lettuce are some of the few greens that are looking good in this heat (the lettuce is our 10th succession planting and is in a nice shady spot in the field) This week we're happy to have some potatoes for you all along with some fresh cilantro.  The zucchini continues to flourish and if you're having a hard time getting through it just know that you can cube it, blanch it in boiling water,  cool it off in ice water and then freeze it for the winter. We've gone that and it's always nice to dip into a bag of zucchini on a gloomy winter day.  Alrighty, we hope you're enjoying the harvest and we'll see you all soon!  Your farmers, A & T
