Well, the cucs got downy mildew so we thought it was game over. Then the temperatures took off and we got a spectacular stretch of hot and dry weather! So the plants continue to produce! I was told that temps 30 degrees and above kill spores...so, we have cucs for a short time yet!The roma tomato patch looks fanrastic! Knock on wood. Maybe we'll have a bevy of sauce tomatoes this year?!? Would be nice to make up for the craptastic romas last year.Weeds!!! We are weeding. Then hoeing. Then weeding some more. Basically it's half/half harvest vs weeding. In the picture my guys are tackling baby fall carrots. Sweet Corn! Whooo she's tasseling nicely. Should start harvest within two weeks! Can't wait! If the weather stays nice and warm it should be so flavourful and sweet! Enjoy the rest of your summer, its speeding by once again!!

Ok, our cuc crop looks decent so far! This can change fast as we have no way to combat mildew issues, so if you want organic cucumbers for pickling - don't hesitate!

A full bushel order is 2 cases for $60 firm. We are doing a mix of the small sizes, so they will fit nicely in your jars. We do not harvest the tiny size of no.1. You can put in an order by simply emailing me at firstname.lastname@example.org. We will deliver cases to Dufferin Grove farmers market on Thursdays and Evergreen Brickworks on Saturdays. Hopefully for the next 4 weeks, maybe longer. (Google the markets, they are easy to find - I can't respond to all the emails we get with directions etc) Let me know how many cases you'd like and which market/date you'd like to pick them up. Sending me a phone number I can text to confirm is easiest. Ok! Don&…
