The Produce Tok Delivers to Tok

IMG_0804Listen to an interview with Leah Harmon of CV Farms.

There is only one more month to go on the CV Farms produce truck run so watch this blog for announcements of their arrival in August. The July produce was phenomenal. The peaches were out-of-this-world delicious and the cherries were great.

We also got plums which are almost ready to eat, a super sweet cantalope, amazing tomatoes, a healthy green bell pepper and good looking zucchini and yellow squash as well as a squat buttercup squash. I practically cried tears of joy seeing this exquisite produce.

The husband/wife team drive their semi from Montana to California to pick up the produce and then heads up to Alaska, making a number of stops. They used to mostly pass through Tok before, but have made it a definite stop this year, and I’m so grateful.

And now for some produce beauty shots…

After August, how are we going to get a nice fresh variety of produce in Tok? Open to all ideas!

    I would be buying as much as possible and start canning/freezing for the winter. Those peaches are just gorgeous.

  2. I’m completely out of my element here, but even in the sub-tropics (Savannah, GA) we keep a greenhouse in the winter (December – February) to ensure our produce survives to the next season. Ours is just pvc pipe supports with ~4mm plastic tarps – probably not enough for an AK winter, huh? Is a greenhouse of any sorts possible in Tok?

    PS – I’m a regular reader to your blog. I love learning about climates completely alien to mine – and yet we’re still in the same country! Thanks!
