farmer billAugust is here and so is the hot dry weather. No rain in the last two weeks has begun to stress out some of our crops, especially the greens - lettuces, chards, beets, and herbs.

Another season is upon us and our first deliveries are happening. Because of our cold spring, our strawberries are arriving later than expected, but with the heat of last week they are finally ripening. Our first weeks we will be bringing in lettuces, salad and culinary herbs, radishes, and some asparagus. Swiss chards and our different types of peas should arrive by mid-month, with beets and carrots soon thereafter.
