Greetings:
Tomorrow Tuesday, August 18th, is your CSA week # 11 delivery. Attached is the list of the planned harvest of items for your boxes.
With the summer heat on, our cherry tomatoes are on the run now getting ripe across the variety spectrum. Hopefully we can give different mixtures of these cherry varieties to the all the CSA groups as we go through the harvest. Our larger sized tomato varieties are coming soon, and if all goes well with those, we will do the same.
One of our main field concerns now is irrigation. With the hot dry weather, there is a greater likelihood as each day passes without rainfall, I find myself devoting greater amounts of my time in the fields to this important task. Although you might see me running around under the sprinklers, it is, and I stress this point, not necessarily to cool myself down, but to insure the proper operation of all the sprinkler nozzles.
It’s a tough job, but someone has to do it.

Be well,

Fred & Karen
