Lots of variety and lots of quantity this week; it’s time to think about putting some summer goodness by in your freezer or pantry.
The latest from Shared Harvest: “We have loads of eggplant. We will sell by the bushel for anyone who would like. $1/lb and a bushel weighs 33-35lbs.
We also have callaloo, peppers, beans, dragon beans, cherry tomatoes, parsley, dill, cilantro, carrots, beets, cucumbers, pickling cucumbers, heirloom tomatoes, ground cherries, zucchini, onions, garlic and basil.” Kevin
The Sosnicki Organic Produce news: “Keep on ordering romas! Tomatoes are very plentiful! Check our blog for ordering info! Sun Sugars too! Heirloom Tomatoes, Grape Tomatoes, Green Peppers, Sweet Onions, Eggplants of different colours and shapes, Hot Peppers, Kale, fresh dug Potatoes, Sweet Red and Yellow Watermelons, Sweet Corn (pick off the tip worms!), Cantaloupes, Blonde and Regular Field Cucumbers (may have cases for pickling, new patch is beaut), Beefsteak Tomatoes, summer Cabbages too!!” Jess, Ben and Crew!!
Debbie Wiecha has another nice load of Red Haven peaches, and probably two more weeks’ worth of late varieties after that.
See you at the market!
