No matter how hard I try, I can't run away from Autumn. I see it first in the fields, as certain crops tell me of the impending doom. The arrival of corn is the first sign, followed by the harvesting of the onions and lastly the ripening of the melons.
This week you will get your first taste of the onion crop. I harvested the first batch last week. Although they are currently drying, they're not quite hardened. What that means for you is that I recommend that you use the onions within the week period. After this week, the onions will have hardened enough for you to keep them in your pantry for a longer period of time. Also this week, you will receive a cantaloupe. You'll find these beauties big and fairly sweet.
You will also be receiving a good amount of cherry, heirloom and hybrid tomatoes, corn, cucumbers, zucchini, yellow squash, peppers, eggplant, basil, Swiss chard, kale and garlic.
Oh and please don't forget to bring back the plastic tomato containers. I have a limited amount and would rather not have to buy a gross of these.
Pick up time will be from 3:00 to 6:30 tomorrow.
See you then,
