The last of the transplants went in this week before the rain. Lettuce and spinach was planted. The direct seeded fall crops are emerging and look great. The tomatoes are ripening and hopefully the blight will stay away. We do plant resistant varieties which helps. This is likely the last week for cucumbers and melons. The yellow crookneck squash we will not grow again. It is not a popular item. We were also not thrilled with the purple carrots. Let us know what you think. The variety we usually grow was not available this year. I thought they were tasty cooked but not tender and sweet enough for a fresh eating carrot.
The vegetable share this week includes melons or watermelons, zucchini with summer squash, greens (fennel, perpetual spinach, rainbow chard, dandelion, arugula and endive),beets, sweet onions or scallions and a choice of tomatoes, peppers, eggplant or tomatillos. The substitution is dill or parsley.
The fruit share includes peaches, nectarines, apricots and plums.
