Harvest for July 17, 2012

We’re enjoying the flood of summer crops, including tomatoes, eggplant, and bell peppers.  Irrigation continues to be pretty much 24/7, and we keep praying for rain.  Meanwhile, the crops continue to be productive, and the heat has returned to average, so we a looking forward to more great harvests.
In todays harvest
Tomatoes; mostly big red slicers, with some heirlooms as well.  We will have lots of 1st’s.
Eggplant; get ready to make eggplant parmesan, or ratatoullie, couse here comes the eggplant
Zucchini;  some from Millsap Farms, most from Dan Bigby and Drew Bradley, both via the Amish Produce auction, conventionally grown.
Onions; Nice big bulb onions from the Seymour Amish.
Asian Long beans or Green Beans;  The asian long beans are maroon, with a fantastic sweet taste raw or lightly cooked. We grow the asian varietie because it holds up much better in hot weather than traditional green beans. We will have some green beans as well, from Gateway Farm.
Canteloupe from the Amish Produce Auction via Dan Bigby.
Basil
Bell peppers; red, purple, and green.
Cilantro
Hot peppers; Hungarian wax, yellow and orange.
