Hi...just a quick run down of your baskets this week..

tomatoes, green beans, cucumbers, yellow squash,  kale, swiss chard, bannana peppers, turnips  ( for soup), lettuce, patty pan squash, herbs including parsley and lemon balm, eggs.. 

Hope you are all enjoying this wonderful, early fall weather. We have been canning up a storm at the farm and enjoying the smells of fresh jams and peaches. I always enjoy the thought that January will find me eating fresh peach jam on muffins....
