Market – Saturday, August 2

Thanks so much to everyone who attended the GOAL B and G Produce farm tour. It was a lot of fun!

Tonight I saw our first eggplant. I’m sorry, but it won’t make it to market. We will bring it home and grill it. So yummy. Don’t worry, though, Robin has eggplant for you this weekend!

We’re excited to welcome back Ralph Ripley. He’s spent the last month or so tending carefully to his gardens and now he’s ready to show off his work!
