Tomatoes are starting to pour in! We should be able to put an extra tomato in every box this week – if you haven’t already please check out our post on Heirloom Tomatoes to get the low down. Heirloom tomatoes often have a less than perfect appearance but we believe the taste difference is worth the blemish factor!
Peppers are coming on strong – the red and yellow ripe peppers are not quite ready, maybe a week or even two. Also we’ll try and switch back to Carrots and maybe leave the beets out of the share this coming week. We’ll also put Chard in the boxes instead of Kale, as long as our new planting grows enough over the weekend. Speaking of new plantings – we have a fresh round of Cilantro and Dill that is on the cusp of readiness and we’ll be rotating that through the boxes as soon as we can.
