Well … at Least the Days are Getting Shorter

Enter Store Here

Who here is ready for the cool fall weather to be back?  Right here.  All season it has felt like we have had one foot in the previous month and one foot in the next.  We got our glimpse of September and now we sit in the middle of July.  However,  the leaves are starting to turn a little and even beginning to fall on the ground.  Apples are here and the sweet refreshens of the apples and watermelons help curb the stickiness of the heat and humidity.

The really great thing is the availability of the produce.  The days are noticeably shorter which is at least giving some relief to the fall produce that is starting to grow and the we have definitely had plenty of rain.  So the summer fruits are thriving and the fall garden is coming in which will makes for an outright full buffet.  Before we know it the crisp cool nights will be back and reaping the harvest for a full spread meal served outside will be the pay off of the late season wet heat.  Until then we have watermelons to keep us cool and tomato sandwiches to keep us full.

In the store the vendors of Peddlers’ Produce have a great selection.  Elkhorn Fresh Farm has beautiful garlic.  Hosey Honey has some of their best honey available as does Fritz’s Apiary.  Fritz has been beekeeping for 20 years and loves his bees, this is apparent in the taste and quality of the honey.  Check out our vendors page and Fritz’s Apiary to see Fritz’s honey for only $10/lb.  Add it to your veggie box or order by itself.
