Hello all,

Volunteering...

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

Our BIG SALE last Saturday...
was a hit, and by that I mean it did what we needed it to do: sell all our unsold produce. There was a big turnout, our biggest sales at the truck this year. Thanks for helping us out.

Did we get any rain here?
Yup. It's pouring now, and we're over 5 inches since Saturday afternoon. There's been standing water in the fields since then. Sure glad we got the garlic and onions out when we did!

So, we have even more summer squash than we did last week. What can I do with all this squash they're pushing at us (you might ask)? You can see what Chris did over the weekend above. We'll include a page with a list of over 10 uses for squash with any order for the 5 or 15 pound boxes we're offering.

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

  • Greens: arugula, cabbage, chard, dandelions, lettuce, kale (bags & bunches) & pea shoots.
  • Veggies: beans (green & Roma), beets, carrots, sweet corn, cucumbers (Diva, slicers & picklers), Orient Express eggplant, garlic, oyster mushrooms, onions (sweet), peppers (green bell & cayenne), new potatoes, scallions, summer squash & zucchini, tomatillos & tomatoes (red, heirloom, roma & two types of cherries).
  • Herbs: Sampler, basil (4 sizes!), chives, cilantro, dill, French sorrel (salad & soup sizes) & mint (peppermint & spearmint).
  • Fruit, berries & melons: 'Pristine' apples, apricots, blueberries, cantaloupes, white nectarines, peaches, plums (purple & yellow) & rhubarb.
  • Poultry & Cheese: eggs, the usual cheeses.
  • Miscellany: apple sauce, honey, maple syrup, strawberry jam.
