Happy August from Local Bushel!

Welcome to the dog days of summer!

August is the month when our favorite summer fruits start to burst with all the best flavors of the season. Tomatoes and sweet peppers are ripening on the vine, as the warm summer nights allow for our growers’ fruit sets to mature well. It’s looking like this year should bring a real bumper crop of nightshades!

August is also a big month for planting fall vegetables. It’s hard to think about in this kind of heat, but our farmers are hard at work getting crops like kale, cabbage and broccoli in the ground for autumn harvest. These young transplants have absolutely loved this last week of rain!

We hope you are all enjoying the summer and we can’t wait to have you taste all of our favorite flavors of the year. Field ripened, freshly harvested and delivered straight to your kitchen!

Locally yours,
Local Bushel
