YOUR WEEKLY CSA GUIDE
Forkful: July 2021 - Week 7
Sunday - July 12, 2021
Looks like more inclement weather in the forecast folks, be sure to keep your storm gear handy when picking up your shares!

The rain these past couple of weeks has been insane. By the time we finish today and tomorrow we'll probably be somewhere in the 5+ inch range! Normally we would be asking for rain prayers, but now how about a sun dance? We need to dry out soon and quickly to ward off disease and rot. And, the weeds after the sun peeks out... we don't even want to think about it.
With all of this bad weather it's given us the opportunity to work in the high tunnels trellising peppers and tomatoes. We also continued work in our new wash/pack area. We were able to move our vegetable washing machine, tubs, and tables in there and it felt pretty good. One more step in the process completed.
We're excited to have sweet corn and pickling cukes in this week's share, two of my favorite things! Give me some butter and little salt and pepper and I could live on them all summer long :)

WHAT TO USE FIRST
DID YOU KNOW: SWEET CORN
There are about 800 kernels on each ear of corn and the silk of sweet corn is actually the stigma (the female part). Surprisingly, there is one strand of silk per grain of corn!
