Rain, rain GO AWAY! It seems like it has been raining almost constantly for the last week. It's been a really rainy, and very mild summer as well. I suppose we shouldn't complain about the mild temperatures, but the rain has really made things difficult for gardeners and farmer's in the area.
Anywho, onto the local booty for the week.
Check out the mega load we got from the container and community gardens this week:
Things are fairly slow goin' in the container garden, but they are going. The Roma is trying to make a comeback and the Better Boy is moving along. We did get a few Roma tomatoes this week, but forgot to get pictures of them.
Check out the CSA this week:
From the right we have: cilantro, a zucchini, a cucumber, a yellow squash, a green bell pepper, a large tomato, a bunch of Roma tomatoes, and some apples (!!).
This is what $24 can get you at the Columbia Farmer's Market:
From the right we have: local penne pasta, shiitake mushrooms, 2 Japanese eggplants, a zucchini, baby bok choy, snap peas, mung bean sprouts, a cantaloupe, 3 lbs. of red potaotes - in an apple bag :-), and fresh basil.
I just wish some of the produce didn't come in packaging. Any ideas on how to get around that?
I hope everyone is having a good weekend.
'Til next time.
