Notes on the box.

Tomatoes have taken a downhill turn. Late blight was found, so we have to harvest the unaffected fruit and pull out the plants. We might get a few more in the box next week, but this might be the last of them! There will continue to be more peppers.
Otherwise things are going to start looking a lot more like fall! Spinach, broccoli, more radishes, carrots, and beets…. and more fall treats!

Feta! Remember if you’d like to store it for longer, you can make a brine with a pint of water and 2 tsp of salt to store it in. Roasted beet and arugula salad with feta!
Herdsman in a young cheese just a month old that has been pasteurized. I thought I’d try an aged cheese that could go out soon after it’s made. I think it’s pretty nice. It’s lemony and I like to open texture. The rind is nice to eat, too!

On the Farm.

We’ve been trying to get the season extension set up online and we think we have it! You can use this link to sign-up. If there’s any problems, please let us know. We are obviously farmers first and our ability to navigate the computer programs needs some cultivating!
It’s been getting pretty dang chilly out here in the evenings. We’ve dipped below 50 a few times now. The greens are sweeting up and and we have been getting excited about roasting and soup. We’ve also been squeezing in the last bits of summer with a long bike ride and eating dinner outside. Kids are back in school and we are happy to have red peppers and carrots to pack in their lunches (and cheese curds, too!)
