CSA week 1

Posted 7/19/2010 8:23am by Gregg Keckler.
Dear Subscribers,
 The rain was needed!  Very refreshing!  We are pulling lots of carrots, beets, eggplant, and some tomatoes, but not quite enough yet.  The peaches are juicy and sweet.  They tend to be softer this year than last year.  They will probably not keep for an entire week.  So check them ofter and eat them when they are soft.  There are alot of plums - purple/yellow are Methley plums, red/yellow are Cardinal plums, and yellow plums are Shiro.  The raspberries and blueberries are slowing down at the moment.  The raspberries will be back heavy in August.  We hope the blueberries will pick up again now that we had rain.
   We are looking forward to the summer produce and fruit.  We will probably have sweet corn in two weeks.  Looking forward to somw great stuff.  Check your emails.  If you wish to order extras order by at least the evening before pick up day.
  
This week's shares will include:  peaches, plums, carrots, beets, potatoes, eggplant, blueberries/blackberries.

Have you noticed a lot of finches this year. I have noticed several different kinds.  They love seeds, Keep your eyes out for them.  Enjoy those birds.  

See everyone this week.  Gregg and Louise Keckler - Orchard Country Produce
