Hello from the farm! I am loving August, as I stepped out into the field and these 2 beauties (ground cherries and tomatillos) surprised me with how fast they literally were exploding from their skins. These are both from the tomato family and grow on vines. The tomatillos are green and ready when then burst their husks. The ground cherries turn an orangey colour and have a fruity flavour. Finally, here’s the link that shows us how tomatoes are a fruit!

The other item that has me totally stoked is the potatoes. We sent you 2 lbs as we figured most of you could make those tasty tubers disappear pretty fast. Here’s an item where I really do taste the organic difference.
