July 23 CSA Night!
It is SO fun to head out to the garden these days--all kinds of goodies out there! Today I found the FIRST true ripe full-size tomatoes. I called Sue (CSA member and local newspaperwoman for the big Cannon Falls Beacon), so she brought out her camera tonight and snapped a few shots of it. Maybe I'll make the paper this week! Could it be that I have the first ripe tomato in Cannon Falls??? Last year I would've believed it, but this year they are much later. Last year I had a dozen ripe tomatoes on July 4!
Emily was excited to show off her garden tonight, too. Her sunflower has a very full bright blossom. I will get a picture of it on here soon.
Here is what the baskets held this week:
broccoli (and LOTS of it!)
green bell peppers
yellow cherry tomatoes (the orange ones will be ready next week!)
zucchini (green and yellow)
leaf lettuce--speckled amish and green salad bowl
