Hey everyone, hope y'all have had a great week. Welcome to week 10 of your CSA. We hope that you enjoyed the bounty last week. We were asked if the blueberries were organic, and if anyone else was wondering, they are. We get the blueberries from a family friend's farm in Brookhaven. They are so plump and sweet. I hope y'all have enjoyed them! 

We have gotten the rest of our summer field planted, and looking forward to some juicy melons! New additions to your box this week are beefsteak tomatoes, shishito peppers and pickling cucumbers. Are you ready for some tomato sandwiches? Van and I each ate 2 1/2 sandwiches the other night. They were really great, we almost went back for a 3rd sandwich! The pickling variety of cucumber is also really great to enjoy in salads, with dips, and sliced on top of dishes. Some of you may remember the shishito peppers from last year! They are a thin walled blistering pepper. Mild and sweet roulette pepper, meaning that 1 in 10 will be spicy! These are some of our favorites that we grow. I will post an awesome, easy blistering recipe that makes for a great appetizer.

We hope everyone has a really great week and enjoy this week's bounty! Cheers!
