The Heat of Summer

weekly CSA produce share
These crops just love the heat!

Ah, summer is here. That means dry days that are hot, hot, hot! The day we picked up these vegetables, the temperature topped out at 105°F. And, more days like that are coming. Fortunately, there are crops that thrive in that heat. Corn, for example, and tomatoes, and, who can forget summer squash, that prodigious producer of summer. And, soon, we hope, we’ll start getting those other heat-loving crops: melons!

This week, we picked up:

  • Baby red potatoes (1 basket)
  • Yellow Taxi tomatoes (3)
  • Red heirloom tomatoes (2)
  • Amaranth greens (1 bunch) — traded for more potatoes
  • Arugula (1 bag)
  • Summer squash (2)
  • Yellow onions (2)
  • Sweet white corn (2 ears)
