The crew is putting the last summer share together as I compose this note. It has been a good summer, with steady help, timely rains, realistic amounts of sunshine and heat, some storms, some quiet still nights, impressive lightening and some big full moons. The the first batch of chickens were great, the vegetables had some consistency, yields have average, some germination issues mid season, we kept up with weeds most of the time and as it cools into September we will catch up, cover crops are looking marvelous and some fall greens are already up.

This week the half shares we anticipate will have:

  • potatoes
  • carrots
  • lettuce
  • onion
  • garlic
  • spaghetti squash
  • tomatoes
  • red lipstick sweet pepper
  • zucchini
  • jalapeños

The whole share we expect will have:

  • potatoes (Nicola, taste like Yukons, perhaps smoother texture and slightly sweeter)
  • carrots
  • lettuce
  • broccoli
  • salad mix
  • onion
  • garlic
  • okra
  • celeriac root ( great for soups, stews or pot roasts)
  • tomatoes
  • cherry tomatoes
  • lipstick peppers
  • zucchini
  • jalapenos
  • anaheim pepper
  • parsley
  • kale

It’s been fun this summer. We hope see Fall share people next week (same place, same time) and look forward to seeing all summer participants back next May!
