Well it’s official,we are out of the fresh greens business until late fall. Kenny has mowed and plowed up all our mustard, kale, collard and spinach (we are trying to keep one small plot of that)! Most of our lettuce is gone now, but I am trying to keep a small amount available for those with special request.
Kenny has been planting more tomatoes and peppers as well as eggplant and squash. The green beans are in full bloom and we are starting to get zucchini and cucumbers. Tomatoes are looking great, but the heirlooms are just slowly starting to bloom.
Strawberries are the biggest and best tasting we’ve had in years, but they will not last much longer. Once the 90 degrees weather arrives they will be all but gone. This will be the last weekend we’ll bring them to the market. The rest we have will be used for jam and for our “local” wine maker. Be sure and come early if you want or need berries. Kenny said black raspberries should be ready about next weekend.
We will have lots of veggies available this week..cabbage, broccoli, cauliflower, fresh peas, Swiss chard, radishes, green onions, golden zucchini, beets, possible some cucumbers. We will have a small amount of mixed lettuce blend and even some TOMATOES.
We will have plenty of tomato plants and other veggie plants for sale. My herbs are looking great, we will have many varieties available as well as multiple herb pots available. Don’t forget to pick up your farm-fresh, free-range eggs at the market as well.
If anyone needs produce and would like me 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.
We are looking forward to another great year and hope to see you at the market,
Val & Kenny
PS If that’s not the best commercial for fresh juicy strawberries, I don’t know what is…
