We could use some hotter weather. I mean, this weather’s beautiful for hanging out, enjoying summer. But there are thousands of pounds of tomatoes on the vine, waiting for some 90+ temperatures. They are starting to trickle in, so there should be a few tomatoes in your share this week, but we can’t help but compare to last year, and wish we had more already. Patience will, hopefully, be rewarded.
That said, we’re rolling in abundance this time of year. There’s nothing better than loading up the market table with everything under the sun, staying so busy we’ve hardly got time to eat breakfast or chat with other vendors. We’re busy busy- harvesting, pickling, planning for the new full size greenhouse with Growing Lots, planning for the rural extension of Stone’s Throw. Trying to stay abreast of what’s happening with the North End Urban Farm property in St. Paul. Lots on our plates, figuratively and literally.
And lots in your box!
