No matter how much we anticipate and prepare for it, I never feel like we're ever truly ready for the intensity of Peak-Season! Yet, here we are again - in the think of it! Nonetheless, Peak-Season has its perks: endless, gorgeous Montauk Bi-Color Sweet Corn, beautiful Tri-Color Snap Beans, sweet Bell Peppers, tons of fresh MI Peaches & Blueberries, and Pickling Cucumbers for everyone!! Besides Bell Peppers, we now have Jalapeños, Hungarian Hots, Sweet Bananas and Shishitos in market. Our Silver Queen White Corn and Fairy Tale Eggplant are also starting to make an appearance, while Mint, Bunched Basil, Dutch Shallots, and Mini Caraflex Cabbage have begun. Our brand new patch of Mini Cucumbers is ready, so we finally have plenty for all (2 pounds for $7!) Zucchini & Summer Squash Mix is a delight, full-size Broccoli and tender Broccolini is coming in like crazy, and (oddly enough) Sugar Snap Peas and our Beauregarde Snow Pea Mix are doing wonderfully! Be sure to check out our new Raw Honey listing under the Eggs & Mushrooms category. Our neighbors at Hill Side Honey have bottled up their all natural Wildflower Honey and are selling their 16 oz, 24 oz, and 3lb jars on our site. Local honey is the best! Thank you to all who were so patient with us last week while we were short staffed! My aunt & uncle took a well-deserved vacation - possibly, the first in 20 years - and we definitely missed them! Fortunately, we're back on track and ready for another great week. :) And, if you haven't already done so, check out our Centgraf Farms Community Page. There's already a bunch of great recipes and photos up, and we'd love to see what you do with your weekly box of produce! All the Best, The Centgraf's

It does look like this season is drawing out the appearance of our tomatoes & melons...the swings in moisture & temperature have set them back by about 2 weeks. They're still looking very healthy, though. I will let you know the moment we start finding some ripe ones!!
