Tomatoes came late but thankfully we’ve still plenty available. THINK Unique Gardens, Greenville Farms and Rick Steffen Farm will all have tomatoes tomorrow. There will be strawberries tomorrow and probably next week too. Peaches and nectarines are pretty much done for the year. Spinach should be plentiful. Winter squash, like everything else, is late but butternut squash, delicata squash, and pumpkin should be available tomorrow.
