Hi everyone, Jess here, reporting in from an island somewhere in Maine. Before I explain a little more what me and my veggies are doing here, let me just say that I hope you’ll check out The “Tell” from pickup 6 if you haven’t already, there’s some good stuff there. I accidentally forgot to click “Publish” before leaving town, so unfortunately it’s just hitting the website, and I hope you’ll check it out!
- Cheddar Cauliflower
- Slicing Cucumbers
- Bell Peppers
- Sweet Baby Bell Peppers (in the box)
- Summer Squash
- Summer Cabbage (The black veins you may see on the cabbage are not mold, safe to eat, and a sign that our produce is a part of a healthy ecosystem, so enjoy!)
- Italian Eggplant
- Italian Beans
- Fresh Onions
- Carrots (and Tops!)
- Tuscan Kale
Single Shares received corn, eggplant, onions, a bell pepper, salad cukes, kale and carrots. Small shares received corn, cabbage, eggplant, pickling cukes, bell peppers, onions, Italian beans, kale and broccoli leaves! Mega shares received corn, slicing and pickling cukes, squash bombs and heirloom patty pan squash, summer cabbage, Italian eggplant, bell and baby bell peppers, Italian beans, blueberries, rainbow chard, carrots and kale.
- Sugar Plums!!! (There are a few missing because the boys ate some before the photo was taken). Looks like some folks received blueberries in place of the plums, either way, we’ll enjoy!
I was really hoping to make campfire roasted eggplant while the kids toasted their marshmallows, but alas time ran short and the mosquitoes up here began to carry us away. We’ll see what tomorrow brings.
In other news, if you are signing up for the 2020 Spring Share (not to be confused with the Summer Share) the deadline to do so is this Thursday, August 1st! Be sure to check in with Farmer Jamie, or perhaps grab your paperwork from the farm stand while picking up some Jordan Brothers seafood on Wednesday afternoon! Have a great week, everyone. Thanks for reading, and talk to you soon!
