The Cumming Harvest:  This Week at The Cumming Harvest


This Week

This time of year the farmers are starting to make room for fall crops which means summer crops are coming to an end and being harvested. I usually issue a warning that nearly all of the favorite summer veggies are about to be in short supply. Once it gets really hot for long stretches, many plants just shut down flower production, and without flowers, there are no fruit. So, when the hot still days of August roll around there is often a sudden decline in tomatoes, beans, squash, peppers, and pretty much everything but okra. This year, though, we might be ok. It’s not been particularly hot, and there has been just enough rain to keep things from getting too dry. We’ll be pushing 100 degrees in the weeks ahead, no doubt, but we’re also likely to see scattered showers. If we stay lucky and the trend holds for a few more weeks, the bounty we have now just might be with us right into fall.

Sweet Pea will be out of town for the entire month of August. Have fun in Pompeii, Mel, we’ll miss all your wonderful veggies!

Doug’s Wild Alaskan Salmon Doug should just about be finished fishing in Alaska so we expect to receive a new delivery of Salmon around mid September.

Ancient Awakenings is listing this week.

Carrell Farms & Buffalo Gal is delivering this Saturday. For those of you that have pre-ordered, your items will be delivered this Saturday. You may also order from Carrell Farms and Buffalo Gal this week and pick up this Saturday.

Indian Creek Angus will be in town this Saturday and is available to make another delivery to us. If you missed ordering from them last week, you can order from them this week for Saturday pick up.

New Field Farm's Online Market:  Ailsa Craig onions and order deadline


Greetings,

A note about the ordering deadline:

ORDERS HAVE TO BE IN BY 8:00 THURSDAY MORNING

We all forget stuff and I like to give people some leeway, but things get complicated for us if the orders aren’t in on time. Here’s why:

At 8:00 Thursday morning I print out the list of what to harvest and we head out to the field. We harvest all morning and sometimes for part of the afternoon. If there’s time, we do field work. I finish up harvesting Friday morning and put the orders together in the afternoon. If orders come in late and we don’t see them until lunchtime or later on Thursday then keeping track of what and how much to harvest gets complicated and more time-consuming.

So, if your order comes in late it will likely be cancelled. Circumstances may allow us to fill it, but that can’t be counted on.

Meanwhile, Ailsa Craig onions are starting to size up and field tomatoes are beginning to ripen. We have an heirloom variety you can read about in the market section. We have a few cherry tomatoes from the field as well.

The price of greenhouse tomatoes are now $3/lb., same as the field-grown ones.

We’re kind of limping along with the first planting of cucumbers. A new planting is on the way!

If you would like some beans ask for them in the comment section. We have a 100 foot row of pole beans, but I think production will be too erratic
to list them on the website. If we have some they’ll be $3.00/lb. and I’ll debit your account.
They’re a long, slender variety called Fortex.

If you have any questions or comments, let me know.

Enjoy,
Tim
