Anticipated harvest for September 1st


This is the actual peak of the season.

Sweet Corn is awesome right now.

Heirloom tomatoes are at their peak. Try one of each! There are plenty of red tomatoes too. Enough to take a whole box for canning or freezing.

Flowers are incredible, including lots of sunflowers.

This is the best lettuce mix of the year so far. Likewise for beets.

There is a new crop of carrots coming in - very sweet.

Watermelon!!!! And Cantaloupe!!! If yours wasn't ripe last week, try this week's free. They are Very Very Very Very good right now.

The Cucumbers and Zucchini continue to produce a lot. TAKE A WHOLE BOX OF CUKES. really.

Herbs are abundant. Basil, Dill, Cilantro, Parsley, plus various random herbs. Plenty of basil for pesto. Do you need a whole garbage bag of basil to make enough pesto for the whole year???? email or call Andy and we can meet your basil needs.

Garlic, Green Onions, and Onions. The onions are a short timer, because we lost the majority of our crop to rot this summer.

Green and Wax Beans. The green beans this week are french filet beans. Primo!!!

Potatoes. We will pick a lot of potatoes of various kinds. Red and yellow, first yellows of the year.

Eggplant. Fried. On the grill. Roasted. In Baba Ganoug. One of our favorite veggies.

Napa Cabbage and Bok Choy. There are plenty of these. Jen just started a mega batch of Kim Chi.

Kale and Swiss Chard - yum. There may be some Broccoli too.

Radishes. First time this year.

Hot Peppers. Yes. And may be some Sweet Bell Peppers and Frying Peppers. 

What else? Okay. There may be some pears, plums and little apples. This depends on how the harvest goes. They are really good right now.
