South Shore Saturday morning 10am to 12 noon: sweet salad mix and arugula, beautiful thin skin no-peel Asian cucumbers, heirloom tomatoes, lots of cherry tomatoes, slicing tomatoes, sweet dry buttery (like a good avocado) Thai pumpkin chunks, Italian “Long of Naples” winter squash chunks, Italian basil, garlic chives, dill, Thai basil, loads of massive orange-fleshed sweet potatoes, all of our seasoning peppers and hot peppers, lots of baby ginger and baby turmeric, escarole, dandelion greens, scallions, onions, carrots, broccoli greens, baby bok choi, green papaya to eat green or allow to ripen (3-5 days).
There is superficial damage on the sweet potatoes from potato weevils, a subterranean pest that wiped out our crop last year. You may find a happy little weevil (who loves organically produced food as much as you do) as you clean and chop these potatoes. This will be the last crop of sweet potatoes from us for a couple of years. Rather than spray harmful pesticides, we will stop supplying the bugs their favorite food and wait for the weevil population to give up; and then we will replant this delicious crop.
