Due to Mother Nature's unpredictability, we do not know exactly what will be in each week's share, but the following lists what has been included in past years: 

2011
Weather:  Spring, and into early Summer, had high amounts of precipitation and extremely unseasonable cool temperatures. August was moderately dry but with cool temperatures.  Cool nights in late summer greatly affected the regular summer harvest season.  Fall brought low precipitation with mild temperatures, resulting in a successful pumpkin and winter squash harvest.
