It is a little chilly this morning, the temperature as I write this is 58 degrees. It is starting to feel like we are easing into fall; another summer is winding down.
The Rillito farmers’ market will be having a chile festival this weekend and we will be selling sinahuisa, jalapeño, poblano and Aleppo chiles.
As mentioned last week, we will be selling CSA shares for our fall & winter CSA season that will start on November 12 and continue until mid-March. The forms will be available at the Sunday market, and in the CSA box on the right sidebar of this website, and here.
We are still looking for farm workers and for volunteers on harvest and other days. Please contact me at firstname.lastname@example.org or 520-909-4903 if you are interested or if you know anyone who would like to intern or volunteer.
We had a great start to the monsoon on July 3rd with about 3/4in of rain and a trace on the 4th. We are hoping to receive more rain soon!
The tomatoes, cucumbers and bush bean plants are loaded with fruit that aren’t quite ready to pick yet. The summer squash is another matter as we have been harvesting about 40 pounds of patty pan and zucchini every day lately. Also, I checked the potato plants a couple days ago and they should be ready to harvest in two weeks or so.
