the second planting of beans are starting to produce. the first round was eaten to the ground by a groundhog. ditto for the cukes. the only bad thing i can say about hugelkultur is it attracts super lazy groundhogs that dont want to dig a hole for themselves.  mabel finally got onto them and i havent seen them since i bought a can of groundhog scram. read the riot act to the tomatoes a few days ago  but they wont turn red until they are ready to i guess. saw on the internet that jumping into cold water is one of the most healthful things you can - cools down your organs. so come out and swim - for your organs if nothing else. last call on potatoes tomorrow.

CSA 7.21

 Most, but not all, of the cabbage is ready so if you don't get one this week, you will next week. We are going to have a serious talk with the tomatoes this weekend to tell them it is time to ripen up. I am looking forward to my first BLT of the year.

Green beans have been slow but if they can survive this heat, I predict them next week.

CSA scheduled for August 11th will actually occur on Wednesday August 10th,

We will remind you numerous times, but thought I would mention it now.

See you tomorrow!

Ross sends his regards from the pond.

csa thirz

beets coming again for the last time for a while. eat them and the greens. kimchee again - eat it its good for you.  tomatoes are going to be a bumper crop if they will start turning red.  korbelik came out to the farm to do a story on hugelkultur that drops sunday in the journal.  if you are  building yours you might want to get the wood together before that story breaks - could be slim pickins for a while.  we have a kitten- black and gray if anyone wants. nice temps this weekend - still great swimming weather - see you guys in the pond.

CSA 7.7

Hey CSA'ers...hope you had a great 4th and made many potato dishes for your BBQs. More potatoes tomorrow, along with a ton of beets, kale, and a thai kimchi that is a twist on the traditional with limes, peppers and vinegar. Tomatoes are forming nicely and green beans and cabbage should be arriving next week.

I am running low on bags, so please bring those along with you!
