might bring in some winter squash as the grasshoppers are devouring the plants but they somehow produced some fruit. invites to the 12th annual stickey wicket went out yesterday if you didnt receive one here is a party link ----we are burying a whole pig so come and bring friends. kids and dogs welcome.  Im not going to enter the croquet tourney this year because if i did i would just win it again. or i might enter and play left handed.

continually spraying the tomatoes with garlic - grassshoppers are very self conscious about their breath - but this weekend i think they all decided that if everyone eats them........still quite a few some may have some nicks. if it wasnt for the grasshoppers we would probably be overrun with them. i am turning the chickens loose out there this week - chickens eat tomatoes too but most of the big ones are off the ground now. spinning honey this weekend if anyone wants to observe the miracle of bees. good swimming still out there.

I would love to promise you that this very special episode of CSA will contain tomatoes. I am not saying it won't , but it doesn't look great. Pretty sure there will be beans, and of course, squash.
I won't know until I get out there. Sorry to be so vague,
 but it makes your bag rather an enigma this week and that is fun....

Hey guys-Barb here. We will have green beans, onions, basil, squash, peppers and hopefully get everyone a cabbage that has not yet received one. There are potatoes for those of you that miss them. Just let me know. Tim is hosting a cool beer event tomorrow. Link below. See you soon.  And as a reminder, CSA will be WEDNESDAY next week.
