Vollmer Farm CSA: Week 18

I thought last week’s watermelon was pretty good from our CSA with Vollmers Farm, but this week’s peaches were spectacular.

Farmer John from Vollmers noted:

When I think of Summer I think of good NC peaches. We will have them in your share for the next 3 weeks. These peaches are coming from Alan Bundy in Turkey, NC.

Peaches if picked ripe off the tree, will turn to mush if handled very much. As a result most farmers, including Alan will pick peaches on the un-ripe side. To ripen peaches, simply let them stand at room temperature until the flesh is soft to a gentle squeeze. Refrigerate them to prevent further ripening.

This week’s CSA box included:

  • peaches – 2 pounds
  • tomatoes – 2 pounds
  • butterbeans – 1 poundsweet corn – 4 ears
  • sweet pepper mix – 1 bag
