Field Notes: Summer is in full swing!  We’re selling heaps of cases of heirloom and cherry tomatoes every week and everything is in peak production and flavor.  Now’s the time to do that summer canning project, get an extra case of Roma tomatoes to can or pickling cucumbers for those bread-and-butter pickles that’ll remind you of summer all winter long.  This week we’re harvesting our first Jimmy Nardello peppers (look forward to those in the next few weeks) and our first hot peppers.  We’re getting steady weather in the high 90’s up in the Capay Valley, so things are chugging along beautifully!

 

Box Notes: We’re including our first (non-watermelon) melons this week, and they’re fragrant and gorgeous.  We grow almost 10 different kinds of melons, our CSA manager Lola eats them with salt and lime sprinkled over them.  Enjoy your heirloom tomatoes as simply as possible, they’re gorgeous!
