Farmer Bill's newsletter (belated) from July 12

Notes from Green Thumb Farm 

July is here and our summer crops are doing well. Tomatoes, peppers, and eggplants--many varieties of each will be here soon! We're still picking lots of lettuces and greens--mustard, Swiss chards, radicchios, beets, onions, carrots, some broccolis. We're still picking peas but only for another week or so. Beans and squashes have started, and some herbs are picking well too. Plenty to enjoy now and plenty to look forward to.    More...

Basil share, and herb share--mint and garlic chives--AND Lewis Waites stuff.

Notes from Green Thumb Farm--July 1

Summer is finally here! Our crops are growing well. Up until last week we had ample rain, though this week the soils are dying out from lack of rain. The nights have been cool last month (June) so most crops are maturing later than ears previous. Swiss chard, beets, fennel, radicchio and all sorts of peas are being picked now! Herbs and lettuces are in abundance as well. Carrots, beans, onions and summer squashes will be arriving soon.
