Another thing keeping growers on their toes? Bugs! The rain seems to bring out all the grasshoppers, potato bugs, beetles, hornworms, and all those biting bugs as well. It sure is wild out there! While the rest of us are hiding out in air conditioned, bug-free homes and offices, our favorite farmers are out braving the heat, rain, bugs, and weeds to bring us delicious produce week after week. I am so grateful for them! Thank you farmers!!
This week we get to enjoy more of the delicious hot weather crops like tomatoes, eggplant, cucumbers, and peppers, as well as head lettuce, kale, carrots, and Asian pears. How lucky are we?
Enjoy your week!
