- 1 # Potatoes. A mixture of Kennebec, Chieftain Reds and Yukon Gold.
- 2 # Sweet Potatoes-my right hand man Mackey Williams helped me dig these this week. I apologize that there is still some dirt on them. They were still too moist to get all of the dirt off.
- Bunch of Beets. Three Varieties. These are beautiful. You can cook the greens down. Our favorite way to use the root part is to roast them in the oven with potatoes.\\\
- 4 Peppers
- Small head of Lettuce. A couple people that get extremely small heads of lettuce will also get a head of bok choi
- 1# Tomatoes
- 2 Butternut squash
- A bunch of Broccoli. I’ve debated on whether mentioning this to you or not, but there is a possibility that some of your heads will have some small worms in them. A mixed blessing of USDA Certified Organic Crops. Spring time has less chance of worms, but less likely chance of having a good crop. To get rid of the worms, submerse the broccoli in salt water for 15 minutes. Worms will float to the top.

KY's weather is the most beautiful and interesting of all the places that I've lived. It is also amazing to see how much slower things grow when we have less day light in the day. Crops are slowing way down, but that means that you will be getting ready for some wonderful produce to warm up with.
This week will probably be the last for yellow squash, zuchinni, and cucumbers. Peppers, tomatoes, and basil should continue normally until October. We will start adding new items each week probably from here on out. I hope you enjoy them.
In your Basket you will find the following USDA Certified Organic Produce
· 2# Potatoes
· 2 Acorn or Spaghetti Squash
· 0.5 # Squash/Zuchinni
· 3 cucumbers
· 4 Bell Peppers
· 1# Tomatoes
· 1 Cantaloupe
1. The farm Tour is @ 3pm on October 8th- If you have not told me or emailed that you plan or don't plan to come, please let me know either way. It will be potluck style and we will line up who brings what before too long.
2. Chef Terry from St. Joseph London is going to be at the library September 12 from 5-? showing some ways to cook asian greens from our farm. I will be there too.
3. My twin brother's wedding in VT was beautiful. We're all very happy for he and his wife. Amanda and I got to visit with my family and my older brother's son. Finley won the wrestling match.
4. If any of you know of any jobs in the London area please let me know. Preferably full time jobs.
Thank you for your support!

I think you will really enjoy 2 new items this week. Acorn Squash and Fresh pears. The pears are from Amanda's dad (just down the road) they are not certified organic, but are still wonderful! I will attach a recipe for a wonderful creation that Amanda and my mom dreamed up.
You will have the following items in your basket.
· 2 acorn squash
· 4 pears
· 1 # of potatoes
· 4 Cucumbers
· 1.5# yellow squash, zucchinni, or yellow Zuchinni
· 6 Bell Peppers (yellow or green)
· A little okra or green beans.
· Cherry Tomatoes
· Regular Tomatoes. This is a new variety. The tops (where the stem would attach) have some cracking. I figure most people would rather deal with the cracking than go without tomatoes!
See you in the Morning!
