“What’s in our shares this week?”
Tomatoes, Delicata squash, yellow summer squash-also Spaghetti squash. Poblano and green peppers, onion, green beans, eggplant, Yukon Gold potatoes,and cucumbers. Hope I didn’t leave anything out.
FYI: Spaghetti squash and Delicata squash are not what you’d call storage squash, so use them up within a few weeks. When you get Butternuts or Acorn squash, they hold over longer. I try to use them within 6 weeks or so, though they may last a bit longer.
The fruit share and the combo shares this week get Fuji apples.
**I will send out a Newsletter by Friday that will come to your email inbox-watch for it!

This week 14 of 20 in the CSA season. Have a lovely week!
Good Monday evening!
Here is a listing of what we plan to deliver in your CSA shares this week: green beans, cucumbers, Delicata squash, onion, Yukon Gold potatoes, okra, zucchini, and eggplant. Marconi (red) Banana (orange) and Poblano (dark green) Caution: If you have children, warn them that some peppers may be too hot for them to sample. It’s never easy to tell which ones are hot and which are not. Historically, Marconi and Banana peppers are mild, but this doesn’t hold true in every situation.
The Combo this week is Fruit – Gala apples. Time for a good old apple pie!
Here’s a link to a quick and easy green bean recipe that you may enjoy. (It isn’t highly seasoned).
Don’t forget to pick up your share this week! Have a lovely week everyone!
We hope you are having a good week! Time is certainly marching on isn’t it? Soon it will be Labor Day and autumn will be arriving-a beautiful season of the year for sure.
Sorry that todays “what’s in my box” is running behind schedule. Our middle child and oldest Son and our Grandson from Virginia, came for a very short visit and I simply got behind on things around here. So without more delay, here is what’s coming your way!
Poblano peppers (sure hope you are freezing some to use later). Banana peppers for some, though we didn’t have enough harvested for everyone to have them. (We took them as far as they would go.) Summer squash, zucchini, cucumbers, onions, bell peppers, tomatoes, potatoes and green beans. Super box this week and we hope you enjoy everything in it. We so appreciate the support you give our farms.
For the first week in August, here is what we are planning to have harvested for your shares this week! (Some of the time it becomes necessary to substitute an item(s), though we try our best not to do it)

If you want to order anything from the online store for delivery next week, be sure to order by Sunday evening.
