Anticipated Harvest for August 11th

Our first sweet corn of the year is coming on Thursday. Both varieties that are ripe are early, small-ear varieties. But they still taste awesome.

We'll still have plenty of cucumbers, flowers, zucchini, green beans, basil, parsley, garlic, onions, scallions, potatoes, carrots, and kohlrabi.

We are going to try to pick the salad mix today and see how much we get. There will be a a limited supply.

We'll see how the beets are doing with those funny black spots, and the eggplant should be starting to produce more and more. Cilantro and dill are better this week. kale and chard should be good too.

Tomatoes are coming on strong for now, but the early blight is threatening to cut our harvests short. We are spraying with a safe organic copper-based remedy. We have washed the tomatoes in order to remove any residue.

Update: cabbage and jalapenos were added to the harvest.
