It's Cucumber Season!

It is July and we are in the midst of cucumber season! We harvest cucumbers, summer squash, and zucchini three times per week and the plants are really starting to produce! Our coolers are full of these crops. Yet, our customers at market and our CSA members are loving the cool cucumbers and the succulent squash... they are the real taste of summer! Now that we have had some warm weather, our bodies are really craving these wonderful summer foods.

We love eating cucumbers while harvesting them. On a hot summer day, they quench our thirst and keep us hydrated. 

We also like hunting for the biggest squash, cucumber or zucchini we can find. We try to pick them before they get too big, but sometimes we just can't keep up with their growth. When they're too big we take them home and make yummy things (like zucchini bread!).

Enjoy the beginning of cucumber season and get hungry! Pickles anyone?

This summer squash was too big. Now it's going to be Ariel's dinner.
