Week #8 — Note from the Farmer

Dear CSA Member

It is a very busy time of year.  Tiding up the fields, spring time crop land tilled and replanted with Kale, Collards and fall vegetables.  Planting new crops to take over as others finish their seasonal harvests.  The endless cultivation of weeds that just do not give up.  Harvest for the weekly CSA shares.  

Eggplant is starting to produce and this week Green Beans.  Dust off your Eggplant recipes from last season.  We did compile a nice variety of recipes for Eggplant and they can all be found on the farm website, Recipe Section.  Looks like we may have another good Eggplant harvest.

Basil, Scallions, Bright Lights Swiss Chard and Lettuce.  I thought the lettuce was finished a couple of weeks ago but we started so many plantings this spring time and with all the cool rainy weather earlier this summer, the lettuce continues.  One more week of Celery.  The Celery is dark, juicy and sweet.  What Celery should really taste like.  

Fruit Share this week will be White Peaches and Yellow Nectarines.  Mushroom Share is Shiitake.

If you would like to order Coffee, Chocolate, Honey or Maple please log into your CSA Member Account from the farm website home page and place the order.  We will deliver the orders with the CSA shares.

Summer time.  It is great.
Enjoy the harvest.

Deborah for everyone at Stoneledge Farm
