On break for the summer.
2019 Week 33, Summer CSA 11 of 26
It is amazing how quickly one can work under the threat of rain. Or perhaps the cloudy weather brought the farmer up to a speed which these hot and humid days do not. In either case, there was much list checkbox checking to be had this morning.
One of the new things we tried this year is a diversity of less-hot hot peppers, including something of a rainbow — red, orange, yellow, green — of jalapenos. I did not know I would find it so pleasurable, but that was the feeling — something akin to pleasure — when I discovered their fat colors hanging from the plants at harvest. I hope you enjoy the eating as much as I enjoyed the gathering.
Raspberries are coming on at 10-15h/wk, though the Japanese Beetles are putting in more hours than me. :) Winter members, please take to freeze for later. What you don’t take, I save for late-joiners. So this is your chance! :)
If the rain comes tonight, I hope you get to enjoy it. It feels almost like a rhino walking from poacher territory into a refuge. By which I mean, it feels like refuge. And that feels good. :)
See you on the farm,
