Weekly Availability List

Product List for Tuesday August 22

Posted by Natalie Kujala :: Friday, August 18 :: 2:02pm

Taylor here again, via the cover letter! Who knew I would be able to write the cover letter twice in one week. The office is still buzzing with the activity of August. It can be stressful, but it is also very exciting. All of our growers are moving fast, even when they come into the office. None of them are willing to stay for a cup of coffee, but that is probably a good thing. I’m sure our growers do prefer to be outside. This time of year sure does make for an exciting list.  

REMINDER: A few growers are starting to offer us winter squash, wow. We are not going to bring it in unless you are looking for some. If you are looking for a particular type of winter squash, please feel free to email or call us in the office!  

HIGHLIGHTS:  

BELL PEPPERS: The purple and green bell peppers are ready to pop off their plants, especially those purple peppers! The crazy weather this year is not stopping these plentiful plants. They just can’t stop!  

SUNGOLD CHERRY TOMATOES: Observationally, it seems that the cherry tomato plants are so prolific. Lately, I have been reading a lot of food and garden blogs. These bloggers have suggested growing cherry tomatoes because they seem a little easier to take care of than larger tomato varieties.  

TOMATILLOS: These little balls of joy are mostly coming from Moses Stoltzfus of Tuscarora Mountain Farm. We have a few of their husks saved in our office. These plants are quite interesting. Natalie calls them “the real fruity pebbles” because of their surprisingly sweet flavor.  

BARTLETT PEARS: Despite this year’s crazy weather, Peachey’s Fruit Farm has managed to have a pretty darn good year, and we have pears by the pallet! Bartlett pears store well, so don’t hesitate to stock up.  

NON-ORGANIC, ALL NATURAL LOCAL CHICKEN EGGS: AVAILABLE IN MEDIUM, LARGE AND EXTRA-LARGE, 15 DOZEN BULK. PLEASE CALL TIM DERSTINE AT HARES VALLEY GROWERS AT 814 448 2784 FOR GREAT EGG PRICES.
