It’s the afternoon of the Fourth right now, and our family is taking a quiet pause between holiday activities while it drizzles gently over Oregon. So far today, Casey has harvested and then we all joined friends at the river for kayaking, canoeing, swimming, hot dog roasting, and general summer outdoor merriment (before the rain began!). More to come, hopefully dry enough to enjoy!
I’m going to keep this newsletter short to better savor the holiday while it lasts (and I imagine that you all are too busy to read a long newsletter tonight anyway, so I’ll save my rambling meditations for next week), but I wanted to say hello and let you know that CSA harvest and pick-up are on as usual this week.
We hope that you too are having a fun and safe celebration with friends and family! Enjoy this week’s vegetables!
Your farmers, Katie & Casey Kulla

Meet this week’s vegetables:
- Plums — The first of the year’s plums! These are called “Methley” plums, and they are always the first of the year. They’re a cling-stone type with lots of flavor and juice (we always end up with plum juice running down our chin with these ones!).
- Tomatoes — VERY limited this week! They’ve just begun! But we’re so excited they have!
- Green beans
- Head lettuce
- Salad mix
- Kale & chard
- Carrots — Limited this week
- New potatoes
