Dear CSA Member,

Typical summer weather-finally.  It is hot, sunny and humid.  Just what we usually complain about.  This summer it is so welcome after all of the rain and cold of June, July and early August.  We are in the fields picking by 6, greens are washed and in the cooler before the real heat has a chance to hit by noon.

The greens are what has flourished this year and there is still beautiful Swiss Chard.  For the first week we are also starting to pick Kale.

We are trying to give you a taste of summer and the peppers will be sweet varieties and also hot varieties this week.  Please only take the hot peppers if you want them and cut them with caution.  For some reason the Jalpenos that we have tasted are really hot this year.

We still have a very good supply of honey and maple syrup that you can order by downloading the form on the farm web site. Fill it in and mail it with payment to the farm.   It is a good idea not to wait until the end of the season because we can run out of some of the sizes.  I will include your honey and or maple order with the vegetable delivery after receiving your order.

I hope you have marked your calendar for the Farm Visit, September 12, 11-3.  Next week I will include a short piece about each of the other local farms that will be attending as well.

Enjoy the vegetables and fruit.  Deborah, for everyone at Stoneledge Farm.
