Week #7 & #8 — July 26[A] & Aug 2[B] Distributions

James & the Giant Beet

Hola folks. Another great couple of weeks for the Southside CSA.

All the shares are rocking as the Harvest season steams along and the farmers are busy busy busy in the field! Thankfully the farmers got a bit of relief from the heat with some much needed rain–although not enough to save the blackberry harvest. We saw some new things in the Veg share–yeah peppers! yeah corn! yeah chives!

Week #8 — the first Monday of August (OMG halfway through the summer already?!!) — we had a lovely, cool summer evening for distribution. There were some new benches and such at The Woods, so we brought the berries on outside to join in the fun. In fact, it was practically the last week for blueberries; Blueberry season is now officially “over” so make sure you savour them to the very last one…
