Tomatoes on this farm have taken a big hit this season. The heat damaged the beefsteak tomatoes by causing yellow shoulders on the tomatoes and decreasing yield because of poor pollination. Granadero plum tomatoes have decreased production because of disease, very unusual for this variety.

September is the month with the most production, so CSA members should keep that in mind so you get the best selections.
Brussels sprouts are getting bigger.
