Hello! and welcome to this week's newsletter!
Spring Plants are maturing much more quickly than anticipated due to the unusual weather, but it also means our winter vegetables are just about done. Some had a very short season due to the hot temperatures. We're currently harvesting pesticide-free eight-ball zucchini. This versatile squash is one of our coveted specialties. Next week, the yellow squash should begin coming in!
Have you planted an herb garden? Lots of lush bunches cut fresh from the garden will bring those wonderful aromas to your kitchen throughout the summer and autumn months. Joann and Rolo pick up a nice assortment of potted herbs each week from the Farmers Market.

Pesticide-free Spinach is trickling in (at this time, you might want to phone to reserve it). We also have a very small field of Flat Leaf Kale. Reservations are suggested for this pesticide-free crop as well. Usually we plant only the curly leaf. We have found that the Flat Leaf wilts a little more quickly. When you get it home, please plop it in cold water. It will come back as vigorously as our other greens, ready for cooking or back in the refrigerator.
Please phone ahead if you are interested in canning tomatoes. We will purchase your produce when the prices are best.
Please phone if you would like us to bring greens to the satellite locations. It's our way of ensuring the freshest, best quality produce available.
Roasting vegetables is a great way of introducing flavorful sides to your meals, and colorful toppers for sandwiches and hamburgers. Click here for more information about roasting (or baking) your veggies.
Gran'ma Angie thanks you for the bags! She hopes you will keep on bringing 'em. Thanks for "recycling" your plastic bags with us! It helps us keep prices down.
