This week we’ve got you covered for Fourth of July picnics: potatoes and fresh dill for potato salad and cabbage and carrots for coleslaw. Speaking of July 4th, one of our growers, Bob Haskell, and his partner Jane Davies, who manages the Verde Valley Farmers’ Market, handle the pyrotechnics for Cottonwood’s July 4th fireworks show. So if you are looking for a great show go check out their fireworks display!
Marilyn and Steve Meyer at Marilyn’s Orchard in Camp Verde are keeping us to date on a bountiful summer for stone fruits, and we can look forward to plums, apricots, and peaches in the coming weeks to supplement all these delicious veggies. Later this week we will send those of you paying in two installments a payment reminder with your current balance. Second half payments are due on July 17th.
Have a great week!
