Farm news: Late blight, the dreaded fungus that wipes out potato and tomato crops, has been found in multiple gardens and a few farms in our area. In any case, we continue to scout frequently and so far have not found it on our farm. The “new” potatoes are sizing up well, including red, white, and blue varieties that you are sure to see in the share within the month! The Asian burpless cucumbers you are getting this week have one of our favorite crops of this year so far, with great flavor and firm texture, and also “burpless” which means just what it sounds like, they don’t make you burp! (i.e. they don’t bother your stomach even if you are someone who can’t always eat cucumbers).
