The heat wave has shifted our peak season by about two weeks, so CSAs will be getting melons now instead of in late August. In fact, some of our melon varieties will be done this week.

Every week and every season brings on new challenges and nothing is the same. Last week, we got a message from cooperative extension that late blight was found in Chenango Count. Ramadan started today and the Egyptian crew is both happy and anxious as they will have to work in this heat.

It looks like it will cool down for us somehow. Fordham will be joining us for the fall and Farmshare will be advertising the winter share already. What happened to summer?!
