Finally! Tomatoes are here!

Tomatoes have arrived! Lots of mixed heirlooms, red tomatoes, and a few straight heirloom varieties, plus cherry tomatoes! Wohoo!
Regarding okra: we know many of you have been trying to order it recently and have been disappointed when it turns out we don’t have any to send. We have several farmers growing okra, and it’s a slow start this year. Additionally, the growers are often projecting more than what actually arrives. We may have some cases available for Tuesday delivery, but we did not include it on the list. If you do want okra, please indicate that in your order, but know that it is still extremely tentative! Thank you!
SLICING CUCUMBERS: We’re starting to see lots of cucumbers! Slicing cucumbers are great standard cucumbers—many people will peel these cucumbers but it’s not always necessary. We also have number 2 slicers – slightly misshapen or scarred – and excellent for making gazpacho or salads. Beat the heat with cool cucumbers!
NEW POTATOES: We have LOTS of new potatoes available right now of various lovely colors and varieties. Let’s move ‘em!
TOMATOES: I have a feeling you’ll be seeing these on the list for the next several weeks. Get ready for everything ‘mater.
BASIL: Still going strong this summer! The weather has been cooperating and many of our growers will have this fragrant herb, just in time for tomato season.
