Mid-August Bounty


The beautiful and tasty eggplant is now ready for harvest. We grow a variety called Dancer, not only because of its unique purple coloring, but also because many members enjoy its less seedy inside and smooth taste.


Please remember when ordering tomatoes, order them by the 1/4 pound starting with 1/2 a pound (refer to last week's newsletter), so I can determine how many I need to harvest for Thursday.


I also thank you for returning the cherry tomato containers and the egg cartons. It does help with the costs of the running the CSA.


We will survey the corn situation again on Tuesday. When I know how much I can harvest, I will send an email out on Tuesday. For those who replied to the email wanting corn and missed out last week, we will be given first shot at it this week. As a reminder, for the full flavor of the corn to shine, I recommend steaming the corn for around 5 minutes.
