Box 9: July 22, 2011

Posted 7/22/2011 7:53pm by Andy Watson.

So if you were ever wondering if it was ‘worth it’ to belong to a CSA, I’m sure this week’s weather cleared that up! Who in their right mind would be out in this heat and humidity for hours each day, right? Well, the Sprouting Acres crew has been working early on in the day and late into the evenings, trying to escape the harsh mid-day heat. Farmer Andy has changed clothes so many times during each day that it feels like we run a Laundromat here…better than the stinky alternative.

            Now that the heat has been cranked up, some of the tomatoes are just starting to turn red and we have baby eggplants as well. It shouldn’t be much longer before they are in our boxes. Of course, we’ve had to water a lot so we are hoping that rain will be in the forecast soon.

            We have just returned to the Downtown Saturday Markets now that our box supply is strong. We usually offer similar produce to what you get in your box and a few different items.  We will keep the website updated weekly to let you know if we will be downtown. And you can always find us at the Eastside Market in Madison on Tuesdays. We still are planning on a “garlic pull-a-thon” but our garlic needs a bit longer in the ground and the weather needs to turn a corner. We will let you know when we decide a date!

 

            We hope everyone is keeping cool and enjoying the summer. Happy eating!
