In your box this week!

  1. Tomatoes — thankfully the forcasted heat this week should help the rest of the tomatoes continue to ripen,  You will notice less in your box this week because of cool temps.
  2. Broccoli
  3. Zucchini and Summer Squash — wow, we are finally past the peak of these guys!  Instead of trying to sneak them into your neighbor’s car, you can once again savor and appreciate them as they wind down for the year.
  4. Cucumbers — same as with Zukes above!
  5. Onions
  6. Rainbow Chard
  7. Eggplant
  8. Peppers – sweet and hot (everyone got a few hot cayennes — they are long and red and skinny.  They dry really easily, so if you don’t want to use them fresh you can just hang to dry and once dry crush them up into a jar for red pepper flakes.  The other kind of hot peppper, the yellow/orange Hungarian variety, is harder to tell apart from the sweet peppers so I continue to write “hot” for you on their stems.)
  9. Beans
  10. Cabbage
  11. Beets with leaves that you can use just like Chard
  12. Carrots
  13. Turnips with really tasty leaves
  14. Purple Basil
  15. Garlic
  16. Celery

Walking along the Rum River


Joe the Dog enjoying a lovely afternoon walk.  In the spring we tap the largest of these Silver Maples lining the river bank to make maple syrup.
