Local NC grown squash and zucchini have begun again, with steady but light supplies starting out.

Asparagus supply continues to be limited on both East and West Coast but we expect prices to slowly come off.

Last week’s rains and extremely hot days put the skids on the tomato harvests locally.

That same heat and rainy weather has shut down cabbage production too.

Eggs are about as cheap as they can get currently.  Prices are rock bottom, contrasted to the extreme markets of only a year ago.

Corn supplies are in a glut, with more corn being harvested than farmers can sell.

Strawberry
Demands exceeds supply.  California berry quality is fair to poor, mostly due to weather related issues.

Good news for this coming year’s apple crop.  The upcoming crop is projected at 132.9 million cartons at this point.

Q:  What remembers half of a strawberry?
