Coming Soon:

This will probably be the last week for kale.  The heat and harlequin bugs are starting to get to the plants.

We may have some cherry tomatoes this week, but only a few are starting to ripen, so we we will probably only have a limited amount.

We’ve started pulling and drying our garlic.  So far, we’ve pulled the the Spanish Roja and Music.  The Spanish Roja is almost dry enough to start giving it out.  We should have some either this week or next.

Our bell peppers are also starting to size up.  We may start giving them out soon.
