Harvest Notes Week 12
Cantaloupe This may be the last week of melons. We’ll see what next week’s weather holds
Onion Onion harvest comes once a year, in late August and then we have a bounty to distribute for the rest of the season! These onions have not yet fully cured, so store them in the fridge and use them within the month.
Green and Red Bell Peppers Our peppers are growing up beautifully! Many more to come in the weeks ahead.
Jalapeños The swap box comes in handy on hot pepper weeks- since people tend to have a love hate relationship with spice.
Garlic This dry garlic will store well out of the refrigerator
Summer Squash Might this be the last week of zucchini?
Cherry Tomato Try roasting if you haven’t yet for a real treat.
Eggplant Such a nice season for eggplant!
Tomato The sauces, salsas, and salads we’ve been making with these flavorful heirlooms are out of this world- and you certainly have plenty to work with!
Cilantro Another week of salsa ingredients!
Basil Keep your basil dry to avoid blackening of the leaves and use sooner rather than later.
