Weeks’ summary:  We had an increase of 197 over a one week period, more than doubling our previous count. The winner so far is Beam’s Yellow Pear, with my favorite, Stupice, close in second. Farmer J made a couple of salads this week, both with and without Basil, that have been enjoyed with friends. We are still experiencing some serious disease issues, and I fear that we might lose one of our Martino Roma plants. We have a plant doctor coming by later this week to give us a full diagnosis.
