What’s in the Bag — Week 9

Dear CSA Member

August and the tomatoes are ripe. They are sweet and delicious. The smaller varieties ripen first and so there are Cherry Tomatoes and also small slicers this week. The Walla Walla Onions are a large, sweet summer onion. Peppers for the first time and String Beans. Summer is great.

Please make a note that the Farm Festival is September 8th from 11:30-3:00. It is a day of fun on the farm. Our neighbors Kim and Mickael Paradis will be manning the roaster this season. Their second home is their restaurant located at 114 Fourth Ave, Manhattan, Paradis to Go. We will have roasted Corn on the Cob and pork and fresh fruit.  We ask members to bring a side dish to share and their own place setting. There will be wagon rides around the farm as well as walks around the farm with Peter or myself. It is just a day of visiting with each other and also getting a first hand look at where and how your vegetables are grown.

This week is the August delivery of the Coffee Share for members that have ordered a coffee share. Market Place orders will also be delivered with the CSA shares.

Welcome August. Looking forward to all the great flavors that the summer brings. I have been updating the farm Face Book page each Sunday with photos of what is happening on the farm and also any new vegetables that are coming in your share.

Enjoy the Vegetables
Deborah for everyone at Stoneledge Farm
