On break for the summer.
2019 Week 27, Summer CSA 5 of 26
Although I will try for earlier tomatoes next year — without organic’s traditional resort to plastic coverings — I am quite glad to have the cherry tomatoes ready, in some small measure, for the 4th of July. Blackberries, too! The first harvest is always a little light, but they will soon be taking much too much of my harvest day, I smile with mock scorn. :)
Although it may still confuse, while we have our last year of the Summer CSA — rather than a year-round approach — I will be noting two limits on the fruit, and setting aside a veggie/greens ‘pickle pile’ — as I have been — for winter. A first limit will be for the summer, the second for what you can freeze for winter. In this case, I am specifically thinking of blackberries and raspberries. If you have any more questions about how the CSA works, let me know! I don’t mean to confuse. :) Also, if you have not yet signed-up for the Winter CSA, you may do that now, to put the berries in your freezer. A $100/Adult downpayment would be nice.
I am very excited to also have some brand-new Kohl-Dill pickles for sale, $10/jar. Katherine at Gathered Threads fermented them, and was really happy with the result. I had them with lunch and dinner today, and had a hard time swallowing through the smile. :) We will try again with another style next time, perhaps her most seriously excellent Chilero, or her Summer Salsa. Let me know what you think.
See you on the farm,
