Specials on Vegetables this Week

Our biggest harvest of the entire season happened last week! (Wonderful abundance of vegetables!) This was followed by a rainy weekend that meant only the most determined of shoppers visited the farmers markets. So – we have some specials available this week. Read on for details.

(Wonder why our harvest was so abundant? A few things: Tomatoes just went bananas after all that recent heat – we just picked more than any other week of the season. Salad mix and other items had been a bit stunted by that hot, dry spell we had. Then they grew like crazy as soon as this rain started last week. Plus, the fall in general for us is much more abundant than the hot summer. All of these factors led to a lot of vegetables to pick!)
