HaOgen Melon This specialty, green fleshed melon has a unique flavor. Its fun to grow varieties that you can’t get anywhere else!
Eggplant The long Asian eggplants and larger Italian eggplants can be used pretty much interchangeably. It might be a good week to get out the grill before the end of summer for these eggplant, peppers, tomatoes, squash and even beets.
Beets These gorgeous, versatile roots can be roasted in the oven, steamed, boiled for borscht or shredded for raw salads. The greens are delicious too and can be used like spinach- raw in salads, steamed or sautéed, or added to soups. If you won’t be using the roots right away, snap the greens off to use them first.
Green Bell Pepper Our peppers won’t mature to sweet red peppers for a couple of weeks but we can enjoy green peppers until then!
Sweet Red Frying Pepper These long, thin peppers are incredibly sweet! Eat them raw, roast them in the oven, or toss them in any sautee.
Cherry Tomatoes This orange variety called Sungold is the sweetest. If you don’t just pop them all in your mouth raw, they are great for salads and even cooked.
Tomatoes We are now into the weeks of tomato bounty. Enjoy them sliced or cooked down to add flavor to any dish. Some tomatoes in the share may be riper than others. If yours is under ripe, wait a few days for it to soften while storing it at room temperature. If you need to store a ripe tomato for a few days before you are ready to eat it, you can out it in the fridge but keeping them at room temperature is best for their flavor.
Green Beans This is the last week of green beans for the season.
Slicing Cucumbers As the season wears on and our cucumber plants age they have started putting out smaller cucumbers. We’ll till enjoy them while they last though!
Celery We are very proud of this crisp, flavorful celery! It is a tricky crop to grow, requiring a lot of water and good soil. Turn it into ant covered logs with peanut butter and raisins or just eat it as is. The leaves are quite bitter on their own but soup cooked with them is deliciously flavorful.
Cherry Bomb Peppers These hot peppers are also a little sweet.
Summer Squash These are another crop for which the long summer has taken a toll. They naturally start looking a little funnier as the plants age but the flavor and texture is uncompromised so we’ll keep harvesting and distributing these until the plants call it quits.
