First, I want to remind you all that there will be *NO DELIVERY NEXT WEEK, AUGUST 12-15.*

Second, a little bit of information on whats in your box this week:

Chile peppers: you will receive a plastic bag of hot peppers (some hotter than others). These will include Anaheim, Poblano, Serrano and Jalapeno. If you have ANY questions on what these are, and their heat level, please ask! I'd be happy to tell you about them and how to use them.

Winter Squash: we are growing Acorn, Spaghetti, Pie Pumpkin, and Kabocha winter squash. You can cook them all the same, slice in half, put flesh side down on a baking sheet with a little water, and bake at 350 until tender when pierced with a fork. Only the Spaghetti squash will look funny when you remove it from its skin - it will actually look like little spaghettis, and is awesome when topped with tomato sauce.

We are, once again, in a sort of transition period, veggie wise. The tomatoes are fading, the peppers are producing like crazy, and the fall greens, radishes, arugula and chard are growing well, but still too small to include this week. We should have some new items when we return in two weeks. Also, basil IS in your future. I've had a few failed plantings, but the newest planting looks great, as do the new cucumbers and melons. We'll see if we can have some more of these yummy summer items here in a few weeks.

Have a great week off, and we'll see you all August 19, 20, or 22!!
