Hello all!


Many thanks to Jhoanna for helping us at the truck last week. There are still some openings available for later in the summer.

The tomatoes are starting to come in, but still not as fast as we'd like to see them. All I can think of is the weather: even tomatoes aren't growing much when it's over 90 degrees, and then the other days it's gray and raining.

This week's produce will include.. (new/back) (sale)

  • Greens: cabbage, chard (bags & bunches), dandelions, lettuce (bags & heads), kale (bags & bunches) & pea shoots.
  • Veggies: beans (green, Romano & wax), beets, carrots, sweet corn, cucumbers (slicers & picklers), Italian eggplant, fennel, garlic, onions, peppers (green & red bell), potatoes (red, purple & fingerlings), radishes, scallions, shallots, summer squash & zucchini, tomatillos & tomatoes (standard red & yellow, Brandy Boy heirloom, roma & three types of cherries).
  • Herbs: Sampler, basil (provided it doesn't pour again on Thursday & Friday, we'll have all packs, including pesto), spicy Globe basil, chives, lemon balm, sage & mint.
  • Berries, tree fruit & melons: blackberries; apples (Ginger Gold), freestone peaches, plums (Red Heart, Shiro & Castleton prune); & cantaloupes
  • Eggs & Cheese: eggs, the usual cheeses (plus goat ash & demi-sec!).
  • Miscellany: honey (incl. 2 lb. jars), strawberry jam, campfire wood.


Hope you can find something on the list that looks or sounds good to you! Have a good week and hope to see you Saturday.

Thanks for your support,
Randy, Chris & Sam
