We are past mid-season: Nick has worn through the boots he bought in the spring, farmers' tans are getting downright laughable, even tractors are back in the barn for mid-season repairs. So it's high time to have a party and liven things up around here.
The peaches in your share this week need to be placed on the windowsill for a day or two to soften before you enjoy them. But as they sit there, they afford you some time to contemplate their loveliness and complexity.
I woke up to Alex, our Apprentice, pulling into of the farm driveway at 6:15 this morning - trying to beat the rain with her harvest. Nick is away and she is taking the reins for a few days. So this is her CSA, and it's a beauty!
