There are a few crops that have just loved this wet summer.  One of them is the peppers.  We have had quite the harvest of red sweet frying peppers, bells peppers, and now the hot peppers are also really rolling in.  The beans are happy too!  This week we will have dragon tongue beans as well as green beans in the share.   The dragon tongue beans are big and juicy and make for great fresh eating.  Coming up a towards the end of our season we will have lima beans for the first time in our farming history and we have what looks like an outstanding crop of dry beans in store for us as well!

This week we will also have another variety of winter squash in the share called a kabocha squash.  Kabocha squash, also known as Japanese pumpkin, is perfect for roasting, stuffing, pureeing, and more.  Unlike the delicata squash,  the kabocha’s will store well for you in a cool, dark, dry place if you can wait that long to try them!   Speaking of delicate squash we will also have them in the share this week again as well!

Here is a rundown of what we expect to have this week
