Doesn't surprise me, given that the White House server ground to a halt yesterday with people watching the Michael Jackson memorial.  If things improve by tomorrow, I'll play catchup.

Billy's Organic Produce, from Tonasket, returned to Wallingford last week with these colorful peppers, as well as tomatoes, basil, blueberries and more. Also with blueberries this week should be Sidhu. And Jessie's should have marionberries, loganberries and blackberries. Tiny's and Collins have early peaches, and Tiny's also has the first nectarines of the season.
