August Bounty & a Farmer’s Vacation

fullsizeoutput_8a8
we can leave the farm, but we can’t leave the produce behind!

I’m writing this from a lakeside in Maine, where its cool enough to have an afternoon cup of tea, but the water warm enough to swim in for hours—my idea of perfect.

Edge, Waylon, our dog Pebble, and I are off the farm for a whole week (!) thanks to our team of three farm sitters, Kim, Charles, and Lydia.  Be sure to give them a big smile and high-five when you pick up your share ?

Another week of bounty is in store for you!

This week’s harvest:

  • Potatoes
  • Tomatoes
  • Onions/Shallots
  • Cucumbers
  • Green Beans
  • Snap peas
  • Lettuce heads
  • Herb choice: thyme, sage, or basil

We’ll see you again on the 20th and 24th.  Until then, have a lovely week!

In Good Heart,
Kate & Edge
