This is week 11 of an 18 week season. You are getting red potatoes, yellow onions, watermelon radishes, squash, slicing cucumbers, lemon cucumbers, green bell peppers, jalapenos, beans and muskmelon. You could also get either black or Nubia eggplant (or both) and either Charleston Gray or Crimson Sweet watermelon (or both)! We hope to give each of you one tomato from the coldframe.

Dear Friends of the Farm,

It appears to have been an exciting week while I was gone!  Corn, melons and peaches…very, very exciting!  This week you are getting Yukon Gold, red onions, cabbage, squash, cucumbers, lemon cucumbers, jalapeno, bell peppers and muskmelon.  There isn’t enough corn for everyone, so only a few of you will receive it.  And half of you will get yellow watermelon and half of you red watermelon.
