Week #9 Harvest

Tomatoes, Peppers, Eggplant, oh my!  It’s SUMMER and if the sweat running down your forehead didn’t remind you, the flavors of this week will.  As my fingers keep slipping off the keyboard (sweaty), the farm crew is busy sheltered in the shade sorting tomatoes, cleaning garlic, counting peppers and cooking lunch.  The sweat is a permanent feature of the day:  just about the same time we were making “thyme” jokes, we were commenting on our first beads of sweat (well before 7:30am).  “We have so much thyme on our hands.””Do you think we have enough thyme?” ” What if the thyme runs out?” And then the conversation switched to noticing different sweat-patterns on people’s shirts or the lack thereof (just wet).  Regardless, we always have thyme for more delirious talk in this heat and it’s all for a good cause: great food.
