PICK-YOUR-OWN

  • Cherry Tomatoes. All 6 rows open! Orange, Yellow, Black Cherry and Classic Red. More Oranges than the other types - these are amazing and super sweet! Black Cherry is still just coming in. Tomatoes ripen from the bottom up, so look low on the plants. Also, there is a path in the middle for you to walk through and over to other tomatoes and herbs. Enjoy!

  • FLOWERS. 15 stems for mixed bouquets. Lots of sunflowers out there! See the pick your own example in Farm Shop if you’re including them in your farm share for the week.

  • HERBS - a great value to add to your CSA share! Please help yourself to a SIGNIFICANT amount of Basil! Make Pesto. Also, Parsley, Thyme, Oregano and Chives.

  • Green Beans. This is the last week for the existing green beans; the heat has been taking a toll on them. If you include green beans in your shares but do not like what you see when you get out there, you may swap in shop. We planted more green beans which should be ready in a few weeks and throughout the season.

Author/Artist: Laura Laielli Statuti

A member of English Pines Studio, her artwork has been featured in local art shows throughout the community. She recently used her love of art in a new way... writing and illustrating a children’s book. Her adopted dog, Butterbean, inspired her book, “Butterbean Finds a Home”. Through the story of Butterbean’s path to finding his forever home, this book teaches children about kindness, compassion, and caring for one another. Come out, meet the author, and get an autographed copy!

See you on the farm!
