Given the large stack of empty peach boxes, I suspect everyone really wanted local peaches. There will be plenty of peaches this week. Raspberries, blueberries, blackberries and strawberries will be plentiful too. Cherries will be available for a few more weeks.Lettuce should be readily available as well as cabbage. Radicle Pastures should have pickling cucumbers this week. (I can’t wait to make more.)
