Last week’s “Basket”

Well I survived the brutal heat alone yesterday at the Wednesday market… Kenny said it was too hot to go, so he stayed home.  I have to say… for once he was right, we both should have stayed home. Never the less I had a pretty good evening, and the crowd was steady, I guess folks still want to eat hot or not.

Summer crops are about the same this week… Kenny’s home grown tomatoes, several heirloom varieties, fresh corn and green beans! We’ll also have Swiss chard, new potatoes, kale, zucchini – golden and green, summer squash, eggplants, bell peppers – all colors, candy onions and cucumbers. Kenny’s hot peppers are going to be available… jalapeños, banana peppers, pablano and a hot mix variety. Those include Cheyenne, Ghost, Serrano, Habanero and White Lightening; those are HOT peppers!

We will have fruit this weekend; peaches, watermelons and the first pick of Gala apples. They are all delicious!

Fall is upon us therefore, we will have more fall and winter items. Winter squash… acorn, butternut, carnival and spaghetti are now available.  The first batches of sweet potatoes will also be available along with more carrots and a variety of beets.

We have bushels of tomatoes, green beans and sweet corn ready to harvest, if anyone needs some for canning please let us know and we will be glad to bring them to the market for you.

Don’t forget to pick up your farm-fresh, free-range eggs at the market. Just a reminder that we have been selling out early each week… so come early or pre-order to make sure you get the items you need.

“Basket of the Week” customers ~ please remember to bring back your baskets and make sure to e-mail me a reminder to ensure your basket order…

Thanks for supporting us with your purchases at the market,

Val & Kenny
