New this week!
Sorry, for the delay, can you tell it stopped raining? We stopped posting, had some actual farming to do for a change. (OK to be fair I am on vacation, I don’t know what they are up to, but I know what I wanted to tell you before I left town.)
Our Washout Sale is over. The Sunshine Sale has begun, meaning almost all plants are drastically reduced so we can clear the decks for the always impending fall mum season. We will continue to bring in large patio pots of annuals and perennials as necessary and as available, for those of you needing a quick finished look.
New from the field this week, you might have been lucky enough to find some of our homegrown blueberries. It’s a small crop up on that hill, but hard to get them fresher. We pick them ripe and ready for sale every few days. We offered them for the first time this year on Customer Appreciation Day, which was another huge success. Thanks to all the vendors for coming down and showing off their products and the excellent way they mix with our fresh produce. We hope everyone had a great time.
The regular slicing cucumbers, our stalwart Marketmore 76, have started to roll in too, alongside the increasing numbers of pickling cucumbers. If you are down and miss them, cucumbers grow a bit more slowly than their summer squash cousins, so we only pick every other day. Then it’s just a matter of first come first serve. As the season progresses there should be a generous and steady supply.
You will also start to see a greater variety of green beans in the coming weeks. This current crop has, I believe, 6 different varieties of green bean alone in it. We will do our best to make sure you know which kind you are buying so you can report back to us on your results at home.
Things are happening all in their due time this season. The robins down in the grapevine just hatched their chicks the other day, so be patient there is more to come soon. Be looking forward to our next crop of baby greens: arugula, spinach, and lettuces. They should be ready in about a week!
