Nothing Says Summer Like Blackberries

Today marks the first box of the Summer Share!  What says summer better than blackberries and corn on the cob? And we have newcomers!  Yea.  I actually got to meet a very nice lady tonight when she picked up her box.   I love being a drop off location...I get to meet new and interesting people and I get to give the driver and his helper Popsicles when it is hot.  I love my job!

Blackberries are starting to ripen.  I was lucky enough to get some this week.  Andy says that if you didn't get any this week you will be getting some next week.  Cantaloupes will show up in our boxes in a week or two also and the beets will be added.

The weather has been so hot!  And dry!...But don't fear Andy and Lizzie's irrigation system is keeping the produce looking good.  And another plus (and minus) the large greenhouse was destroyed but it will not affect this years crops and no one was hurt.  They will need to rebuild for next season.    Scroll down in the blog for pictures and the story.

Our boxes next week will have a baked good list.  Yum!


  1. I would love to know the best way to keep some of these veggies longer. Like the onions - do you refrigerate them or put them in a cool dry place.

    Thank you

  2. I keep my onions in a cool dry place. The tomatoes stay out so I remember to eat them all. The rest I put in the vegetable crisper in the fridge.

  3. Can't wait to get some corn! I got a delicious cantaloupe this week instead.
