This week, again, we hope you like tomatoes. As a CSA member, you eat like the farmers do–that is, what’s in season and lots of it. At this time of year just when I think I can’t take another tomato, I think back to cold winter days when I would give anything for a fresh tomato or a spring of just-picked basil.

Cherry Tomatoes from Buffalo Street
Slicing tomatoes from Food Field and Fields of Plenty (Estiva hybrid or slicing)
Carrots from Buffalo Street
Cucumbers from food field
Hot peppers from Singing Tree/ Food Field (Due to all the rain and cold nights they are not hot at all)
