CSA 2018 – WEEK #11

August 6, 2018

The cherry tomatoes are just starting to ripen this week, and so are the baby watermelons!  These two items are currently in rotation, so you can expect to receive them both over the coming weeks.  (Just not in the same week). Peppers and beefsteak tomatoes are not far behind!  Stay cool in this heat!  We’re wilting out here in the fields, but the plants are loving it, so we’re not complaining!

THIS WEEK IN THE SHARES…

Sungold Cherry Tomatoes – These are the sweetest, most flavorful cherry tomatoes we can find.  You don’t need a recipe…just enjoy!  They are currently in rotation with baby watermelons.  You’ll receive one OR the other this week and the other one next week!
