Harvest #12August 12, 2011
(this is a bit approximate, well see tomorrow!)
Choose 8, you can double an item to count as two:
Tomatoes — a mix of reds, heirlooms and pastes
Eggplant — the eggplant stopped flowering when the temps were closer to 100. We’re seeing new growth again.
Sweet or Thai basil (I made pesto with Thai basil and I LOVE it. Its a richer taste, almost spicey in a very good way). Bigger bags this week, great for those making pesto. Freeze pesto in ice cube trays for a taste of summer this winter.
Sungold cherry tomatoes
In addition to 8 of these items, U-Pick crops are included in your share:
Cherry Tomatoes (Candy Lane)pick your own garden sweets…bring a small basket to fill!
Zinnia u-pick flowerslooking beautiful, take home a bouquet (bring a jar for a little water?)
