Harvest #17

SUCH a beautiful day today.  Harvest time of year is almost always the best weather to work in.  Crisp, refreshing mornings and evenings, but nice and sunny during the day.  It feels good to be outside.  Just watch out for spider web when you're harvesting  tomatoes.

In the box:
cherry and heirloom tomatoes
sweet n spicy peppers
potatoes (german butterball and fingerlings– these are best boiled or roasted, super delicious on their own)

Harvest #16

Headlines:  Summer is Still Here!  F you, Autumn Equinox!  This time of year never ceases to amaze me.  Everything happens faster and in more abundance: friends frantically hitting the river one last time and spending every minute possible outside, the dusk rapidly getting earlier and earlier, and plants going into overdrive churning out their leaves and fruit in order to ensure their progeny a good start in the next season.

Box this week:
sweet and hot peppers
cherry and heirloom tomatoes
delicata squash
some last giant zucchini

Harvest #15

I have the wonderful help of my mother for harvest this week!  It is especially appreciated as I sprained my ankle last Friday.  It has made me reflect upon how detrimental an injury like this (and as debilitating as it is, let's be could be a whole lot worse) is in the farm world.  I'm so lucky to have site hosts who will water for me!  (And the rain has been lending a helping hand as well.)
