These are Cape gooseberries. They are similar to husk cherries but slightly bigger and different taste. Give them a try and let us know what you think!
For those of you who love the Red Long of Tropea onions, we will have them this week and maybe next, but they are almost gone.
If you have been missing our pea shoots, this is why. We are not sure why but the seeds have been rotting in the trays. We are trying to determine the cause.
Its been a good summer for carrots. Having our prone weeder has really helped to get them weeded in a timely manner.
Our newest toy - the 8 burner Pyroweeder (without the propane tank). This will enable us to flameweed a whole bed at once. Until now we have only had a 1 burner flameweeder. Flameweeding lets us kill weeds when they are very small. We kill weeds this way before planting seeds or after planting (but before the seeds we plant actually germinate!)
Expected options (Small share choose 8, large share choose 10):
Cape gooseberries (like big husk cherries)
Red Long of Tropea Onions
