CSA Week 13 (2019)

We’re excited to have watermelons in the share this week.  Summer is truly here! We’re still learning when is the best time to pick them. After getting a few pale pink ones along the way, I decided to just put 1/2 melons in each share so I can be sure you’re each getting one that’s ready and delicious.  Bare with us.  And enjoy!

If you’re picking your share up at the farm today, the construction is still underway so you may need to take an alternate route to avoid SE 242nd just south of our house.

In your share this week, you can expect:

  • 1/2 watermelon
  • Lettuce
  • Salad mix
  • Parsley
  • Basil (mix of multiple varieties)
  • Green pepper
  • Eggplant
  • Tomatoes
