First picking of the black raspberries

What a day we had for our first official Wednesday market, thanks to all of you who came out today. It was beautiful day and not very HOT, but I know that is coming!

This morning was the first picking of our black raspberries so we should have some for the market on Saturday. Kenny picked about a gallon or so of  blueberries last night and we may have a few of those too, but more will be ripening soon.

We will have plenty of veggies on Saturday, new potatoes, green beans, zucchini – both green and golden, summer squash, beets, green onions as well as a new crop of “candy” onions.  Swiss chard, broccoli, cauliflower, cucumbers and fresh peas will also be available.  We will have tomatoes, but they are still slow in ripening; however, we should have about a bushel of red ones (that’s around 50 pounds or so if your’e wondering).

My herbs are still looking great and we have many varieties available. I will probably bring them for a few more Saturdays, so stop by if you need more for your herb gardens. Don’t forget we still have farm-fresh, free-range eggs available; pick some up at the market as well.

I think we are now producing enough fresh produce to start taking order for our “basket of the week”, which includes a little bit of everything available the current week.  The “Weekly Basket” cost $25 and always includes fruit when available. If you are interested talk to me on Saturday or e-mail me and let me know.

If anyone wants to pre-order to have their fruit and veggies ready for pick up, just e-mail me and let me know early Friday.  I will have your order ready when you arrive Saturday morning (that way you can sleep in, work out or just plain work and still get what you want before we run out).

Thanks for your patronage,

Val & Kenny
