Even more food than last week? Well, yes, yes we can!

Torpedo Onions, a market favorite!
Yep, it just keeps coming and coming and coming!  This time of year, we were are in a literal deluge of vegetables, it's hard to remember back in January, February (and even March, April and May this year!), when the simplest head of lettuce of leaf of kale was so very precious!
No, instead, this time of year we are just trying to keep on top of getting everything picked when it needs to be!  Pick, pick, pick.  Done picking?  Great, day a day off and then...pick some more! Phew...
So on that note, I'm going to get right into the HUGE list of vegetables coming to market this week because I got to get out there and pack them up!
