Greetings! First off, a quick head’s up to all of those on the payment plan. It’s time for third installments. Payments are due by end of business on August 6th
Beef’s what’s for dinner this week. Hope everyone enjoys the Tenderloin filets! Eggs are still coming on strong so everyone will be getting regular shares this week. And we’re finally back in the squash business again! The idea of successional planting is that as one crop is dying out the next is just starting to come forth. As you might expect, nature has a way of intervening into our best laid plans. But we try our level best and sometimes plans come together. All that being said – I hope you enjoy all the members of the cucurbitaceae family in your box this week: sometimes farmers just call them “cucurbits” – they are the squash, zucchini, patty-pans, cucumbers, along with the melons we had last week and the acorn squash we might see next week. You guessed it, this family also includes pumpkins and gourds. I’m a fan of them all and I hope you’re enjoying them too.
Here are some pics from around the farm this week, along with what to expect to expect in your share box…
