A Message from Rachael:

Why isn't the on the order form this week?
If you went looking for tofu on the order form I need to apologize. Since we are closed next week and it is a fresh product we will not have it this week but will again in September! We do our best to order the freshest product we can and eliminate waste by selling all of it as soon as we can. This keeps our prices as low as possible for you while giving more to the farmers and suppliers we work with. There are suppliers like Green Table Foods that we bring in every two weeks or so (including this week!) We do this to make sure that we meet minimum delivery amounts and reduce shipping costs. I'll try to work on a posted schedule for these items so that you know when to stock up. Also, if you are looking for something in particular, lease ask! We are more than happy to help you!

Peaches - White Lady Peaches and the last week for peaches

Well, all good things must end, and this is the last week for our peaches. Luckily we've saved the best for last! These free stone peaches from the Flamin' Fury Series (as I talked about in the last email) have it all. They are freestone with a great taste and are great to preserve. Also, we have the amazing White Lady peaches which seem to disappear in my house.

From Mary Jane:

Here they are! The White Lady peach is a large, firm white fleshed peach with a deep wine-red skin and is VERY popular with the people who dehydrated their peaches. It is a sub-acid white flesh peach which makes it seem even sweeter! I bought my dehydrator based on tasting one of the dried White Lady's. It was delectable! The White Lady is fantastic just for eating too!

Just a reminder - All the fruit we get from Eva and Rene are 'tree run'. We do this to avoid the sorting station that insists on fungicidal baths, fuzz removal (peaches) and paraffin wax coatings!. This means some fruit will be larger and some smaller, some more ripe and some less ripe all in the same box. Eva and Rene let our fruit ripen on the tree much longer than if they were to pick it for the shippers! The shippers want green fruit and we want tree ripened fruit!!

Have a great week,
Maryrose and Rachael
