It’s still hot. Really, really hot. So I want to remind all of you that your produce is happiest when it is cold. And it is coldest when we first start opening the coolers at the beginning of distribution each Wednesday. So if you are typically picking up your produce closer to 6pm, it might not be as fresh and perky as you would like it. All this to say that if you want the absolute freshest, longest-lasting produce each week, please show up early during the distribution time. But not too early – our volunteers aren’t ready to hand out produce until 4pm.

This week we have another lovely selection of peak summer veggies. Sometimes I just can’t believe how lucky we are to have all of this deliciousness every week. We’ve been making salads, smoothies, stir fries, and refrigerator pickles over here like crazy and loving every minute of it. I hope you are all enjoying this season’s produce as much as my family is!

Have a spectacular week!

And the fall crop of lettuce at Willowbrook is ready to go into the ground as well.

Coyotes (!) ravaged the melon patch at Whipstone. How strange!

Look at this gorgeous spread. How lucky are we?!
