Happy Labor Day weekend… I guess that means the summer is almost over.  We will be at the farmer’s market on Saturday, and will have plenty of fresh veggies for your family gatherings.

Available this Saturday: fresh green beans, potatoes, okra, zucchini – both green and golden, summer squash, as well as “candy” onions, Swiss chard, cucumbers, green peppers, jalapenos, mixed hot peppers, sweet  potatoes, cherry tomatoes and a mixed variety of fall/winter squashes.

Tomatoes, tomatoes, tomatoes…. what a bounty we have right now. We still  have many varieties to choose from; Cherokee Purple, German Pink, Mr. Stripie, Carolina Gold, Park’s Whoppers… just to name a few. We will have canning tomatoes available on a pre-order basis only… be sure to place your order if you are wanting to make homemade salsa, pasta sauce or your favorite recipes.

We have begun to pick apples… Gala are the first ones available, and just started picking  Johnagold apples, they are much like a Honey Crisp apple. Mutzu’s will be ready in about a week or so as well as our Golden and Red Delicious apples. We will have Gala and Johnagold apples available on Saturday. Looks like a good harvest is ahead again this fall.

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).

Don’t forget we have farm-fresh, free-range eggs available; pick some up at the market Saturday.

Thanks for your patronage,

Val & Kenny
