Jammed Packed Boxes This Week

We are back from vacation and ready to end July with a huge box of produce and hopefully we would miss another week of blogging for the CSA.

John and Anna must really be busy because there wasn't a recipe in our newsletter this week.  I can understand why now looking at all the veggies in the box.  WOW!

Warm and humid describes the weather in Hillsboro these days.  They did receive a surprise rain that  helped cool things down just a bit.  John and the boys are harvesting onions and putting them on the drying racks to dry so they then can be put in the CSA boxes.  Looks like we might be getting a little sweet corn and some potatoes in next week's box.  Oh, my gosh, I can't wait!

How should you store potatoes?  Keep them in a cool, dry place.  If they get too much light they will turn green.  Do not store them in the refrigerator.  Also, don't store them near apples because it may alter the taste.

There is an abundance of tomatoes for canning right now.  These tomatoes don't make the grade to be pretty table tomatoes so they are used for canning.  If anyone wishes to order some just email Rue at cedarmorefarm@gmail.com and let him know how many to tell John and Anna to send you.  They are selling them for $.50 a pound.

Yea For Smart People

I am so thankful there are people that can unweave messes that I create on my computer.  So we are back in business!  Sorry this weeks post is on Friday.  And just to give you a heads up...there won't be a blog entry next week.  But the week after that it should be smooth sailing until the end of the CSA season.

I love it when I can open my box and see everything that is in it.  I was surprised to see a cantaloupe.  Rue said he had 80 cantaloupes in the van to deliver on Tuesday.  I bet that van smelled wonderful  Makes my mouth water just thinking about it.

This week marks the first week of the Summer Share.  All Season Share members will be piking up as usual.  We say good bye to the Spring Share members and welcome the Summer Share members.

Some of the Summer Share members have been with the CSA in previous years and we appreciate their return and support.  And then there are some new members and this will be your first CSA box ever.  We welcome you and thank you for choosing Cedarmore Farm CSA.  We are glad that you what to experience something new...enjoy your veggies!

Please remember to return your boxes each week.  Also break them down and stack the neatly at the drop off location.  These locations are volunteers and we need to respect their property.  Thanks for your understanding.

Out Of Order

Last week we were out of town so we shared our box with friends.  This week my computer is away trying to be fixed and today I have been trying to use my IPad and nothing is going right.  I can't win!  Next week we will be out of town again.  Sorry for not being able to shar. Keep your fingers crossed that all goes well and the computer comes back sooner that they say it will.
