this is last call for basil - we are picking entire plants to make way for fall crops - the basil is in a good bed for fall sun. peaches are white peaches. let them ripen on the counter like tomatoes. need to pick tomatoes more often as the grasshoppers begin chewing on them as soon as they begin to turn red. tomatoes not as sweet as nighttime temps fall. bean tunnel is finally flowering so should have beans til it freezes. this according to barb (expert bean picker)

i love reading about what all of you are eating! :)

the box scheme we operate here is so unreal to me--90% of what we put in the boxes is outsourced, and not from our farm! we supplement with a few vegetables we grow, and most of the meat (pigs and sheep) is from the farm, but most of it is from an organic supplier. some of it's not even from england. apparently CSA-buyers here demand extreme variety, perfect grocery-store-looking-produce, and year-round delivery. they want bananas in their CSA box!

we add some of our own tomatoes, cabbage, and potatoes, but that's about it. brockley farmaceuticals WINS! :)

it's hard to beat an heirloom english apple, though. mmm. :) today was box-packing day, and i ate my fair share of them. :)

miss you guys!
