Farm Share Week 13-Aug 30-Sept 1, 2017

Welcome to week 13 of your shares! Sorry for the missed blog post last week with your box contents but I had a week old baby and it totally slipped my mind.  I had a baby girl-my first after 2 boys and I am over the moon with joy to have a daughter.  Here is a recipe for ground cherries in case your wondering what to use them for!  I’m happy to see Jennys note below because after being gone a week with giving birth/camping I came home to sadly see my tomatoes that had been thriving look like they were dying! I was super sad and confused and now I know I lost them to blight.  I have a lot to learn about gardening and I’m so grateful that I still have the farm share to rely on as our little garden hasn’t done well this year at all.

Hello from the farm!
August is coming to a close on week 13 of Farm share. We’re a little more than half way through Farm share.  We hope you have been enjoying your veggies and discovering new ones along the way. If a certain Veggie has you stumped, please ask Stephanie on the blog, shout out to us on Facebook or send us an email.
We’re here to help!
This week we have green beans again, celery, and ground cherries for the whole shares. We hope to have them for everyone next week. They are a sweet little orange fruit in papery husks that fall to the ground when ripe.
Whole shares are also receiving Roma and field tomatoes. I hoped to have these for everyone but most of the crop has failed due to blight. The constant rain makes the spread of the disease rampant.
Thankfully, like in any garden, though one crop may fail, many other crops thrive and we are able to offer you boxes of bounty.
Soon to come are potatoes! Have a great last week of summer!
