Notes from the Field

Soooo many lessons from the field are arriving as we witness the growing season shift in the height of our Maine growing season...

... the foliage of summer squash and zucchini, such vigorous givers, are dying back to seasonal moisture related disease;, the same with the winder squash plants, revealing their fruits for fall harvest season.  The beauty of winter squash from blossom to fruit is like watching the unexpected happen in its almost ephemeral way ... "How can that grow any bigger?"  or "What an amazing color!" are all comments from our cut flower patches which neighbors the winter squash.

What's in the Bag

  • Salad mix (sooo good this week)
  • Pint of cherries
  • Quart of tomatoes
  • Purple beans
  • Bunch of leeks
  • Your choice of assorted cukes

This weeks bag includes some long awaited tomatoes... the seasonal August heat helped them all ripen right along.  Enjoy the abundance as you receive cherry tomatoes again and a whole quart of tomatoes: heirlooms and our red slicing varieties mixed together.

We included the leeks because I couldn't stop daydreaming about a tomato/leek/goat cheese quiche or tart - try it out!

Enjoy this weeks share.  All the best with much kindness!

Best
