Veggies tomorrow ~ and all season

I've been picking veggies since Saturday for Shares Monday and Tuesday = Peas - 3 kinds; carrots, scallions. We will only hold most veggies for a few days - otherwise they are rejected for CSA shares and given to the food bank, friends or we eat them. It's important to us that your veggies are fresh and savory.

We pick summer squashes daily, peas every 2 days, beans every 3 days, lettuces, broccoli every 3-4 days. When tomatoes, peppers, sweet corn, cucumbers, melons and eggplant are ripe, they are picked 2-3x a week. Some things will hold on the vine or plant = chard and kale, potatoes, onions, winter squash. Some things are picked and stored = cabbages, onions, garlic, potatoes, winter squash. It's a constant rotation of what needs to be harvested, what gets eaten first, etc.

Anyone want to come help transplant hundreds of brassica plants this evening??
