Week #10 — A Note from the Farmer

Dear CSA Member,

A week of Tomatoes, Peppers, Cucumbers and Eggplant. A perfect summertime feast. Peppers sweet and spicy hot Serrano Peppers. A great share of cucumbers as the new patch produces for the second week in a row. Eggplant that just does not stop.

Please note the upcoming Fall Farm Festival will be held on the farm September 6 from 11:30-3:00. It is a great day to come to the farm and see how your vegetables are grown. We have the roaster going and will have pork as well as Sweet Corn. Kim and Mickael of Paradis to Go will be manning the roaster and Kim will make a batch of Stoneledge Farm Vegetable Chili.

We ask that members bring a dish to share so that lunch is a giant pot luck get together. Please also bring your own place setting. We will have our neighbors Heather Ridge Farm with their products, our Marketplace products for sale. There are flowers to pick and take home. It is really a great day to visit Stoneledge Farm and everyone who grows your vegetables. Please make a note on your calendar and come to the farm.

There are 25 pound boxes of tomatoes that are field run-or just as we pick them from the field available through the online CSA Marketplace. The tomatoes are not totally ripe. Packing and transporting tomatoes takes a firmer tomato. You will need to let the tomatoes sit and ripen a bit. If you would like to order, log into your CSA Member Account, Marketplace and place the order. The tomatoes will be in a box with your name on the top and delivered with the CSA shares.

Enjoy the bounty of the season.
For everyone at Stoneledge Farm,
