People & Planet CSA August 11 and the Martins

What's in the box?
Tomatoes, zukes, cukes, cabbage or carrots, melons,  Cippollini onions, potatoes, sweet corn, green beans, tomatillos & plums.  The bags were so full, I couldn't stuff another thing in there.

This week's special gift:  dill pickles

This week is a melange of Italian cantaloupe.  This seed was sent to me from some folks in Long Island.  Hope you enjoy it.  Coming soon watermelon and honeydew, oh yes, we have melons.

Where are the eggs?  The chickens are beginning to molt, so egg production will be off for a few weeks.  I jazzing up a new pasture for them, hopefully this will put them back on track.  Always in August they get a little peckish.


Fall Farming
I've begun planting the seeds for Fall, please if any of you are planning on not continuing, let me know now.  Above, broccoli, cauliflower, cabbage, onions, leeks, lettuce, endive, escarole, raddichio, and more.

What else is coming?
Leeks, in the next box, basil, lettuce, carrots and more.

What's not coming?
Peppers, eggplant, corn, rice.  These are all crops that have take serious hit by the rampaging wild boars.  Since they are not fenced off from the garden, all they can do is get in trouble in the fruit trees.  We will have small amounts of peppers and eggplants later. 
Basil, almost ready to pick.
