Dale Graff 8/17


Here is what is available for delivery on Saturday, Aug. 17.  

My favorite nectarine - the Red Gold - is available this week.  I recommend it very highly.  I will have full boxes available as well as boxes that are half and half Red Gold nectarines and SunCrest peaches.

Yakima Valley tomatoes are in full production now so I should be able to get plenty of vine ripened tomatoes.

All items listed below are new crop unless noted as being 2012 crop.
Order deadline will be 5:00 Thursday, August 15.
