Outside our door at Lake Barkley

Greetings from beautiful Lake Barkley in Cadiz, Ky.  I have been enjoying a mini vacation with my mom and sister here at Lake Barkley while Kenny has been at home taking care of the gardens. Since Kenny is  at home farming we will have plenty of veggies for the market on Saturday.

This Saturday at the market we will have  tomatoes (Kenny has about 70 more Heirloom tomato varieties that are slowly ripening…), sweet corn, green beans -“Blue Lake” and “Roma”, okra, eggplant, peppers (it’s still pepper season…  and we have several varieties, from the mildest to the hottest) zucchini-both golden as well as the traditional type, “Candy” onions, summer squash, cucumbers, Red Pontiac  and sweet potatoes.  With cool fall weather brings wonderful fall squashes… acorn, buttercup, spaghetti and butternut.  We will have many to choose from.

It’s apple time… and we will still  have wonderful fresh picked apples. Our Mutzu apples are a larger semi-sweet crisp apple, great for baking, sauce, drying and freezing; they are still available as well as Golden Delicious and Red Delicious.

If anyone needs produce and would like me to make them a basket to have ready, just e-mail me and let me know early in the day Friday. I will have your order ready when you arrive on Saturday morning.

Thanks for supporting us with your purchases at the market,

Val & Kenny


P. S.   Don’t forget to pick up your farm-fresh, free-range eggs at the market as well.  We have chicken, quail and now duck eggs available.
