"I caught this little guy running away from me while I was picking basil yesterday," writes Clagett member Chelsea. "Wanted to share since it turned out as a great photo!" We agree, Chelsea!  Thanks for sharing it!

THIS WEEK'S SHARE*:

  • 1 head garlic
  • 5 1/2 pounds squash
  • 4 1/2 pounds tomatoes 
  • 1 1/4 pounds total combintion corn + eggplant
  • 1/2 pound total combination pound beans + potatoes
  • 1/ 1/4 pounds total combination peppers + cucumbers + chiles + tomatillos

*Note: Saturday shares have been a little larger than Wednesday shares lately because of the way the vegetables have been ripening. So if this Saturday's share is a little different or smaller than the one posted here, don't fret! That's by design, to more evenly distribute the veggies between the two days.

 

WHAT'S ON U-PICK:

  • Tomatoes
  • Swiss chard
  • flowers -- lots of beautiful blooms right now
  • herbs -- sage, garlic and onion chives, thyme, oregano, mint, sorrel, cilantro, lavender, basils (Thai, cinnamon, sacred, opal, lime), stevia, lavender, lemongrass 

 

WHAT TO EXPECT IN COMING WEEKS:

An update from Farmer Carrie: Both watermelon and corn crops have been planted. Our first round of corn has had a meager showing, but the late succession is looking good. So corn will probably be in 3 weeks if not a few ears sooner. As for melons, the first planting failed but the second one is looking very good. Also in about 3 weeks, I think. But you never know...

That's it for this week! Enjoy the share!
