Happy Wednesday! Here's what you'll find in this week's CSA share:  

  • 1 melon
  • 3 pounds potatoes
  • 1 3/4 pounds tomatoes + peppers
  • 2 1/2 pounds squash + eggplant
  • 3/4 pound, combined total:  tomatillos, okra, garlic, onions, beans, hot chiles, cucumbers  

Note:  We do our best to pick only the melons that are ripe and sweet.  But we can't be 100% sure without cutting them open.  So if you get home and find that your melon is not good, please let us know next week at your pick-up so we can make it up to you. 

What's On U-Pick: 

  • Beans.  (We think the beans are a little tough this week.)
  • Basil
  • Herbs: parsley, sorrel, mint, lemon balm, sage, onion chives, garlic chives, lavender (no flowers), marjoram, stevia, thyme, Thai basil.  
  • Husk cherries (also called ground cherries). Pick them when the husk is yellow or brown.  The fruit inside should be yellow and sweet.
  • Flowers (Gladiolas, zinnias and more)
  • Swiss chard
  • Tomatillos.  Pick them when the fruit fills out the husk.  The fruit inside should be green and taste like a tart, unripe tomato.
