In the Box; Week 10

Note from the farm:

The tomatoes are in! The plants are just starting to yield, so we can look forward to lots more tomatoes in the coming weeks. While it’s been a pretty dry summer, it has been recommended that we spray for late blight as a precaution. Preventative spraying is the only option we have to deal with this devastating disease using organic methods. We applied our first copper spray last week, so be sure to wash the tomatoes well.

The purple or red potatoes in the share are great in a potato salad– they look so pretty with some chopped parsley in a bowl!

Finally, if the quantity of peppers are overwhelming your fridge, try throwing them on the grill, or pull out the seeds, chop up, and freeze in ziplock bags to use in stir-fries and chili when winter rolls around.
