We are officially half way through the CSA season. Only 13 more weeks to go- can you believe it? We know it's the end of summer here when our work staff continues to dwindle. This week, we say Good- Bye to Lauren Frazee who is leaving for Spain in a few weeks, and Jean Lemere who returns to Paris. Our longest term Guatamalen worker, Aroldo, will be returning to his family in Guatamala on Tuesday. We wish all them all the best. Mike Feddison has just returned from Palou, but will be taking the next two weeks off to vacation with his fiance.... look for his return again soon! (Quite an international group we have here!!)
We've had a nice repreive with the weather this week. We definitely needed the rain and the cooler temperatures were much appreciated! The yet unripe cherry tomatoes and the blackberries are looking forward to the sunny and warmer forecast so that they can ripen.
We have an excess of Sweetwater breads and cookies in the freezer that we need to sell before we can get new ones. You will find the breads in the first freezer on the left in the store area.
Salmon has arrived, and we have new deliveries of chicken and coffee.
