CSA Week 10: High Season Harvest
August 20, 2010
Well, we’re over halfway through the season. High season is coming in and those tomatoes are ripening up big time. It’s that time of year when it’s tough to keep up on all the harvesting that needs to take place. In some respects this is a tough time of year, but it’s also really exciting…really what we’ve been waiting for for the last 3-4 months. Nothing get me going like going out and finding ripened melons, jumping around from one to another, knocking them, lifting them, checking out the tendrils to make sure they are ripe (even after all that, they can still be a dud).
Enjoy the heat.
