Fruit! In case you haven’t realized it, we are in the height of fruit season with our growers. Blueberries and Cherries to be specific. And these are two of our oldest and most established partnerships that we have with growers.

So many berries, so little time. The heat wave that is grabbing the entire west by the chops is making for an early end to the berry season. Get in while the gettin’ is good. Both strawberries and blueberries freeze wonderfully if you get more than you can eat in a week. Which is hard to do. I like to put frozen berries into my over-night oatmeal. By the morning, they taste like they were just harvested.
The Great Food Shake-Up
Produce Notes: Red, White, and Blue!
Red strawberries, White Nectarines, and Blueberries headline another phenomenal week.
Tomatoes, spinach, Romaine lettuce, and cukes will be at the party too!
June Field Notes
Some hearty and gorgeous spinach hitting your plate this upcoming week. And just because I can eat a bag of them in 15 minutes, the grapes will be calling the Harvest Boxes home next week too.
Other than that, we are looking at more berries, greens, citrus fiesta, large and small tomatoes, heirloom potatoes, onions, and some avocados to round off your week. Fresh grass-fed beef in this week that is likely to disappear quickly. Have a fun weekend.
Savor the Summer Flavors
Produce Notes: First glance at corn for the season. Only a limited number of shares though so I would add those early. We will have more to come.
The flavors of New Mexico this week look like this: Tomatoes, Romaine lettuce, Zucchini, Cucumbers, Red bell peppers, Kale, and Cantaloupe.
