WILD HARE WEEKLY SUMMER#13/18
I believe that the term is grin and bear it? The crew is giving it their all in spite of how awful the conditions are, though we're shortening workdays as needed. There's good stuff to be harvested and plants that need to live, but I'm also fond of the people we work with. On this morning's list--Eggplant! We tried making a push to grow it this year, and the first round of picking will be for sale in the farmstand this week. You have to celebrate the small victories, right?
If you pre-ordered freestone peaches over the weekend, be sure to pick them up at the farmstand during our regular hours this week (I have 5 only cases to spare if anyone meant to order). We have pre-sold about 90% of what would fit in the delivery van on the peaches (good work, folks), so a round of gorgeous Goosetail Fire Dapple Pluots will be part of the CSA this week instead. Sweet Dream Peaches are on the CSA menu for next week--not to worry!
Saturday, August 25th will be our last Puyallup Farmers Market of the year, so everyone is welcome to come out to the farmstand to shop with us on Saturdays through September. Though we won’t return until the Spring, the Puyallup Market continues through mid-October. If you’re in and around Pioneer Park, be sure to support those vendors whether you’re picking up fall produce or a tasty Grilled Cheese sandwich from Doug and Dave at Griddlers on your way to or from the fair!
