Box Contents

1 lb. German Butterball Potatoes

1 Listada Di Gandia Eggplant

1 lb. Early Girl Tomatoes

1 Slicing Cucumber

1 lb. Mixed Mini Sweet Peppers

1 Charentais Melon

1 Yellow Baby Watermelon


Box Notes: This week we have included a mix of Aura and Glow sweet peppers in the box. These peppers are thick walled fruits that taper at the end. The sweet golden and bright orange fruits are incredibly viristal and can be used in many recipes raw or cooked. The Charentais melon is a superb French heirloom that originated in the Poitou-Charentes region circa 1920. It is considered by some to be the most divine and flavorful melon in the world. Its bright deep orange flesh is super sweet and very fragrant. Enjoy!

Field Notes: With the weather forecast promising temperatures in the 90’s all week, the pack shed and field crews are getting a much-needed break from the blistering heat of the past 6 weeks. This mornings slight chill in the air and golden light is reminiscent of fall. While we all know more heat is on the way, we appreciate the break and the refreshing energy it brings.
