Week 7 September 12th-18th

Hello everyone!  Fall sure is knocking at the door this week.  Our beans have really phased out, and our peppers have begun their fall decent as well.  In contrast, we have been able to pick some small ripe pears that will show-up in your boxes this weekend.  They are small and some slightly bruised from dropping off the tree, but they still offer a pleasant sweet treat.  Maybe a nice addition sliced into a fall green salad.  Once again we will have pumpkins, tomatoes (salsa anyone?), potatoes, sweet basil, zinnias, peppers, pears, and a half dozen farm fresh eggs from our neighbor.  Because September is usually a transitional time between summer and fall harvests, we are a little light in what we have to offer right now.  We had a pretty good crop of corn that has allowed us to barter with other local farms for things like potatoes, eggs, and hopefully fall greens and root vegetables.  The draught, fizzled out our beans, followed by a really good rain that delayed some plantings of radishes, beets, sweet onions and asian greens.  We are still doing our best to supply a full bountiful box of fresh produce every week, rain or shine, ebb and flow.  If anyone has suggestions or comments on what they would like to see different or more of in their boxes, feel free to let us know.  Thanks again for the support and contributions. peace and blessings, Will
