Summer Share #16 of 22: 9/17+9/20 A Tomato A Day

by Erin and Steve on 09/15/18

That's right, it is the 16th week of the share which marks the 10th week of tomatoes in the share. I am insanely happy about this not because we've never done it before (because we have), but because there are still decent tomatoes out in the fields and in a year where many farmers all over the country are dealing with extremely adverse weather conditions our plants are marching on. Now this is the classic 'count your chickens before they've hatched' scenario, but we are thankful for the tomato harvest this season. So I know that on your end of things it may be a chore to make sure to eat your tomatoes, but believe me it is all for the best. I just can't bring myself to think of the foam tomatoes that are everywhere when they aren't in season (yes they literally taste like foam). The tomato season is fleeting, so really enjoy it, because next week I could be writing about how they are all gone for the season.
We are also still signing up current members for the Winter Share, so please remember to bring your payment with you when you come to pick up your share this week. This is what will be in the summer share this week: potatoes, winter squash, carrots, beets, onions, salad radishes, peppers, eggplant, hot peppers, bok choy, greens, fennel, head lettuce, celery escarole, and the amazing tomato!
The fruit share will include raspberries, peaches, plums and pears.
