Letter from the Farm

Labor Day at the farm is like just about every other day; there’s timely work to be done. But we are trying to end the day early so we can host an afternoon cookout with friends. Maryellen is using the salad tomatoes in this week’s share to make a fresh salsa or pico de gallo—and is slicing peppers, carrots and anything else she can find ready in the fields for a vegetable platter. Farmer Ken has reported that there is about 2 days left of water in the farm’s two irrigation ponds for irrigating/watering the crops. It continues to be a very dry summer (great if vacationing; a bit of a challenge for growing vegetables). Sometimes a dry streak will break in September. Maybe that’s wishful thinking, but it can’t hurt to stay optimistic.

-- Ken, Maryellen, Alis & Xavier 

P.S. This season’s nectarines have been top notch—very juicy, very flavorful. Just give them time to ripen on the countertop.
