I think of this week and the week in-between. As I go out and scout the fields, I see a lot of tomatoes, but very few changing color. I see many little eggplants, ears of corn not yet ripe or filled out, and peppers close, but not yet mature. It always makes me both excited and anxious. Excited for what’s close to mature, and anxious because I really want to fill the CSA box with all these wonderful crops. Typically the week in-between comes earlier, but, here we are, still waiting for these high-season crops at a the beginning of August. When we look at the forecast, it sure looks like we’re going to have some good growing weather with hot sunny days and nights in the 60’s.

A little tomato or a pepper (I found a whopping 10 ripe tomatoes out there today, so I thought you would appreciate a sample anyway – everybody else received a Biscayne or Islander pepper)
