A flurry of activity in this late-summer heat wave: late night preserving of tomatoes in every form, scrambling to keep up with irrigation, abundance coming out our ears. Relishing the chance to complete some task in the cooler- sorting veggies or cleaning out bins in the 40 degree bliss.
Hardly time to write with a pot each of tomato sauce and sweet corn on the stove, and an early start tomorrow to beat the heat. Here’s what you have to look forward to this week:
- Peppers, sweet and hot
- Carrots and/or beets
- Cooking greens- kale, collards, chard
- U-pick cherry tomatoes, herbs, flowers
