This Week's Share-More Beans, Greens and Rain

I have to say I am longing for a little sunshine, even if it does mean a drop in temperature.  The lack of sunlight has been hard on fall growing.  This will most likely be the last week for eggplant and green tomatoes.  I kind of wish I was a mushroom grower, considering that is one of the few "new" crops popping up all over.  Please make sure you wash and dry the items in your share well this week.  Grit, dirt and mold are all an issue this week. 

There are two crops that have faired well with the recent warm humid weather--greens like kale and perpetual spinach and the beans.  The beans are delicious--sweet, tender and juicy--finally tasting like they should.  Enjoy the beans and greens click here for a facebook album of the two types of produce.
