Only two more weekends for this year’s New Albany Farmer’s Market;  Kenny is doing his best to keep the fresh veggies coming.  It’s been a difficult task this year, last weeks cold snap was painful to our gardens. We lost almost all our beans, most of the eggplants, peppers, cucumbers and squashes; but we will have some for this weekend. We will also have sweet potatoes, kennebec, and red potatoes, onions,  fall/winter squashes (spaghetti, acorn, butternut, etc…). Tomatoes are still hanging in there, we should  have plenty on Saturday.

There is some good news… plenty of veggies really like the cold weather.  We will have plenty of greens…  Swiss Chard, kale, spinach and mustard. Lots of  turnips, radishes, beets, kohlrabi, broccoli, cabbage, cauliflower and a huge harvest of carrots! The deer ate most of the carrot tops so the harvest was quite surprising!

We still have apples… Golden and Red Delicious apples will be available this week.  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 this Saturday.

Thanks for your patronage,

Val & Kenny
