BOX NOTES
The long green peppers are supposed to be sweet, but in past years we've found that one or two may be hot, so please check first before cooking with children. 

FARM NOTES
Where are the tomatoes?  Well, we're about 10 days behind schedule due to the cool June and July weather. Some of the tomatoes are starting to ripen, but it's a slow process.  As long as our plants hold out and we are able to keep the late blight in check, we'll have lots of tomatoes and other summer crops coming soon!
