hey guys
tons of tomatoes - maybe make a sauce. I dont peel them but you can core and slice Xs in each end and quickly boil off the skins. The yellow tomatoes are apricot tomatoes. They look like apricots and are even fuzzy. seem to be best after they turn a shiny deep yellow. add basil very late in your sauce. like even after youve turned it off. lots of stuff tomorrow see you then.

summer csa 1

tomatoes are picked as soon as they start to turn any color. finish on counter and slice when red or reddish. keep an eye on them. if they are getting too ripe and you cant eat - refrigerate. some of the tomatoes are ugly. these are the best tasting. Ill try to give you guys a variety that will ripen over the next few days. dont know whats going on with the eggs. have theories. they will come back around very soon. eggeater? everything else looks good. pigs are great swimmers. see you tomorrow.

last spring csa

Hello everyone
last spring csa - summer starts next week. hope everyone stays with it - its going to be off the dork. (otd) Tomatoes are starting to slowly ripen but i dont think there will be too many tomorrow. Sauerkeraut tomorrow - european variety. Nothing else new I dont think. We couldnt download the pictures that I took that were going to be entitled "collapsing squash". we'll get some up here. This is when a squash looks incredible and ten minutes later it has turned yellow and looks "squashed". It happens to me all the time. this weekend it happened to two plants minutes after I gave them my fish meal/epsom salts/internet minerals/pond water deluxe breakfast. this is called killing with kindness. but i also had another picture of some of the young squash plants coming along nicely. I will not be denied on the zukes this year. Ill plant five more every time one collapses. thats how much i love zucchini. everyone should plant a few plants of zucchini in their yard and if it took off you could eat one every night. Ive never had one take off like that. its always three and out. i think my squash bug population is big. using pyrethrum and some plants look poised this year though. eat the miso with a spoon if nothing else. do not boil. miso is alive. just a teaspoon a day. (and a teaspoon of blackstrap mollasses and a tablespoon of apple cider vinegar unpasterized those three will cure what ails you in ten days or less.molassses raises bodies' PH - most peoples blood is very acidic - buy brer rabbit) bring container back if you want more miso. see you tomorrow.

the wound on wilsons back looks way worse than it is in this photograph but his situation is this dire. He is septic whatever that means. we are administering a cocktail of antib.o.s and everyone is pulling for him. i have to give him corn to give him the shots and tonight he sideswiped me hard in the femur and it hurt so I know he is feeling better. tomorrow greens roots beans.... some of the beans are purple but turn green when boiled - fun for the whole family. Wilsons comeback is comparable to the one currently being put togehter by the broccolli raab. I am definitely pulling it off failed crop alert and may harvest some tomorrow. see you then

One more week of spring csa. summer starts July 25th. Price $175. 12 more weeks. everything....melons....too much to list here. pork. eggs are starting to pop again.

csa TUES

Feeling anxious? Stressed? Barbs chamomile tea could be the answer if you are having problems falling asleep. Large teabag with just chamomile flowers - powerful stuff - make a whole pot then chill and drink cold the next day. I am having a cup right now and typing this is like driving when you are falling asleep. greens eggplants and some squash. zuchinis are my favorite food easily - browned or grilled browned. carrots tomorrow i think. at least thinnings.
