Greetings,
this will be the last order for June, and also the last week peas and
garlic scapes will be offered.
We do have a couple new items this week: Butterhead lettuce and new red and
white potatoes. Unfortunately most of our green Butterhead lettuce has
already bolted, who would have thought we needed shade cloth so early in
the summer!
Anyway, we have red ones, Maules Philadelphia I believe is the variety, and
they seem to be holding well and are young and tender.
We also are offering new Red Norland and Superior potatoes. Superior is an
early white potato, and Red Norland, an early red skinned white fleshed
potato.
Expect fresh garlic, cauliflower and bunching onions in the coming weeks.
In the field the last week we’ve gotten our summer squash and tomatoes
planted, our pepper area is prepped and ready to plant tomorrow, as well as
more tomatoes. We will be planting two kinds of Basil in a week: Sweet and
Genovese. Sorry, no Lime, Holy, Large Leaf or Thai varieties. Maybe next
season?
Also, as a side note, by July 14th, the Portland Area CSA Coalition
(PACSAC), will be issuing a consumer oriented monthly email newsletter that
they would appreciate growers/farmers forwarding to their members. If you
are not interested in receiving this, let us know.
Finally, we are still offering $15 and $25 egg/produce boxes, so let us
know as soon as you can if you’re interested.
