Toronto delivery this week + I promise not to talk about The Weather

Hello everyone,

Hurray for Solanaceae!

It is almost August and these heat loving crops are beginning to come rolling in: Eggplant, Tomatoes, soon Peppers, and this week new Potatoes! Something to celebrate while we overt out gaze from the hardened clay soil.

Toronto members and followers, I will be doing a delivery into the city this Thursday July 30th. If you would like to take advantage of that and get a share this week just send me an email by Tuesday night.

The Official CSA start date for Toronto is August 27th. I realize, however, that this is the last week before School starts (or doesn’t start), so if you know you will be away let me know and we can arrange an alternative week.

For those of you on the farm, besides new potatoes other new items this week include Escarole and baby Fennel! There will also be a few heads of lettuce for those of you who find Escarole a bit too bitter to make friends with.

Shishito peppers will also be coming over the next few weeks so for those of you who haven’t had the pleasure of trying these cute little lime green peppers here is a link to check out: SautΓ©ed Shishito Peppers: Summer’s Best New Bite

 

Sincerely,
β€” Jenny
