Kenny's beautiful heirloom "German pink" tomatoes.

Good evening,

Thanks again to all those brave souls that ventured out this past hot and muggy weekend; we appreciate all those that patronize Russell Veggies.  Finally we got some much needed rain on Sunday, Kenny’s rain gauge measured 1.5 inches, hallelujah!  Maybe those  roma beans he has been babying will finally be ready to pick for the weekend, we have had  a high demand for that type beans lately.

The summer seems to be quickly coming to an end, school starts next week  and we will be ending our Wednesday’s Market at the end of the month, that means only 4 more Wednesdays.  Beginning September 3, 2011 we will only be at the New Albany Farmer’s Market on Saturdays from 8-1pm.

This Wednesday at the market we will have tomatoes (many of his 19 different varieties will be available, like the beautiful German Pinks in the photo), sweet corn, beans, eggplant, peppers (it’s beginning to be pepper season…we will have over 10 varieties, from the mildest to the hottest) zucchini, summer squash, Kenebec potatoes, peaches and of course our Indiana grown seedless watermelons. Our blackberries are still hanging in there and we will have more on Wednesday and hopefully Saturday too.   We still have a few cantaloupes this week, but we are beginning to run low on those.

We have plenty of canning tomatoes available for those wanting them to make homemade salsa,  tomato juice, spaghetti sauce, canned tomatoes or anything else” tomatie”.  Call or e-mail if you need them, we even have Roma tomatoes by the bushel this week.

If anyone needs me to make them a basket to have ready for pick up, just e-mail me and let me know early Wednesday.  I will have your order ready when you arrive on Wednesday.  We also have a “Basket of the week” which includes a little bit of everything available the current week.  The “Weekly Basket” run $25 and always includes fruit when available.

Thanks for supporting us with your purchases at the market.

Have a great Week,

Val & Kenny
