but here is the news as of today:
Elyse of Farmer Dave’s says that they have LOTS of tomatoes! They expect to have plum, cherry, slicing, and possibly some heirlooms. Peppers are also making their appearance, including green bell, cubanelle, about 3-4 varieties of sweet cone, poblanos, and some hot peppers. It looks good that they will have a good amount of cauliflower and broccoli, too along with all the greens, root veggies, and more!
