Tomatoes –Store on your counter until use for best flavor. Expect to see these classic red slicing tomatoes for a bit, they are the first to ripen ahead of the more colorful tomatoes.  If you’re not able to use them up in several days, place in your fridge to extend  storage.

Sweet Corn- Classic of summer! The variety we grew this year is called “Delectable”. Please be aware we are starting to see bug pressure in the sweet corn. We’ve harvested very carefully to avoid ears with damage or bugs but there is still a chance for it. Most damage is at the tips and can be trimmed away. Boil it, grill it, microwave it, turn it into salad or freeze it if you don’t have time. Store in the husks in the fridge until use.

Cucumbers- Occasionally you may see some scratches from the pesky cucumber beetles but it is superficial. Can be stored without plastic in your crisper drawer for a couple days. If you don’t use up quickly putting it in the same bag with the squash helps keep them fresh.

Watermelon! Sugar Baby is a small to medium sized melon. It has the classic red fruit and sweet watermelon flavor. These are ready to eat ripe. You can store on your counter, and the watermelon will continue to ripen or place in your refrigerator if you don’t plan to eat right away.

Green Peppers- You’ll see primarily green peppers Bell shaped or the elongated frying peppers. The rains stressed the pepper plants so we are continuing to harvest green peppers to encourage new growth. By harvesting it now we re-direct energy to the plant and flowers to make more peppers and grow more leaves, to avoid sunscald on the fruit. Store in the fridge until use.

Beans- Bright yellow bush beans - Classic “green bean” flavor but yellow! Store in the fridge until use with the bag folded over not tied for some airflow, and rinse right before cooking, beans prefer to be stored dry.

Summer Squash- You’ll see a mix of patty pan and or zucchini this week. (I swear the plants are slowing down!) We’ve been eating it grilled and it give it a lovely sweet flavor. Favorite spices & oil and make sure to cut into long strips. Yum!  Store in the refrigerator in plastic until use.

Eggplant – You’ll see either Nadia, a dark purple or Nubia, a purple and white stripped eggplant. Classic in Italian dishes, also great thinly sliced and sautéed in sesame oil or since it’s grilling season grill it. Eggplant absorbs the flavor of the dish you are preparing so is versatile.  Store in the refrigerator.

Parsley-Slightly spicy with a sweet and peppery undertone widely considered one of the most used culinary herbs, mainly due to its versatility. Chop this up and it is a great addition to any dish. Store in the fridge in plastic and rinse before use.

Toyko Bekana – One of our new favorite greens! This is an “Asian green” that looks a bit like lettuce, has a nice mild flavor and is technically a cabbage! We’ve eaten it a couple of ways, both chopped into a salad or added to a mixed veg sauté. Store in plastic.

Cherry Tomatoes! –You’ll see our varieties, Super Sweet Red, Sungold, Esterina gold, or a stripped tomato. If you don’t eat these all on the way home store on your counter till use in salads or tossed in hot pasta to lightly cook them
