A Message from Rachael:

Time Flies!
Can you believe that we are nearing the end of July already!? (Should I say it a bit quieter?)

I want to make sure that you order enough for TWO weeks. We will be taking Friday August 3rd off so make sure that you have amazing local goodness that will last you until August 10th! If you will be away, consider bringing some amazing local food with you or finding a local butcher, baker or farm stand during your travels.

Things to order this week:
  • Microgreens from The Working Centre - Available mixed and now individual varieties!
  • Local Fruit - How much can you eat in two weeks?
  • Bacon and Eggs for weekend breakfasts
  • A pie or some sweets... Invite a friend to share!
From Mary Jane regarding fruit:

The Early Golden plums are a smaller yellow plum with a reddish cheek. They offer a combination of zing (tartness) from under the skin with sweetness from the flesh!

This early peach is the Harrow Diamond variety. It is a smaller peach that comes away from the pit quite easily (although it is not classified as a free stone). It is a very nice eating peach that has good flavour! It is a Canadian bred peach. I have to admit it is one of my favorites!

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!!

Rene was happy to plant heirloom tomatoes! 3 varieties will be ready for Tuesday.. good luck choosing!
  1. The name of this heirloom tomato is unknown. We do know the seed dates back as far as Abe Lincoln. So for lack of a better name we have called them 'Abe Lincoln' tomatoes.
  2. The Purple Russian tomato is more the shape of a large Roma tomato except that it is purple in colour. Very pretty in a salad and they dehydrate well!
  3. Red Brandywine tomatoes - There are different varieties of Brandywine tomatoes but one site described the Red Brandywine to be the 'original' original Brandywine... now that is heirloom! Its heritage dates back into the 1800's.
All the tomatoes have been grown naturally and were planted in a field that was fallow for the previous two years. Needless to say they are very happy tomatoes!

Eva and Rene grow traditional tea roses along with antique roses which are very popular in Europe! The antique roses look similar to what you used to see in grandmother's or even your great grandmother's garden! They are varieties of old that are being reintroduced by Eva and Rene.
