POTATOES F/P Purple Viking potatoes are a new variety for us. The one we ordered didn't come and these were the replacements. We think we'll grow them again next year.
GARLIC F/P More hardneck varieties that have been drying in the barn.
TOMATOES F/P Along with the red tomatoes, there are heirloom yellows, oranges, pinks and greens. We put them in the shares less than fully ripe so that they will last you all week. Wait for them to be brightly-colored and give to a gentle squeeze.
CHERRY TOMATOES F
CUCUMBERS F/P I am looking forward to trying the cold cucumber soup recipe that Merri posted on the FB group page.
WALLA WALLA ONIONS F Sweet onions aren't the best keepers so enjoy them while they are here.
PURPLE AND YELLOW PEPPERS F
SUMMER SQUASH P
SALSA PACK F/P
NEXT WEEK: More tomatoes, cucumbers, squash, eggplant, peppers and salsa packs. Carrots and red onions return.
Most of our days are spent hauling in the heavy harvest.

We are fortunate to have a great crew of farmers, farm apprentices, part-timers and volunteers getting things done.

We also had help from my mom, Sharon, this week while she was visiting from central Missouri. She took the train back tonight and is undoubtedly already working in her own garden of flowering plants, fruits and vegetables.
