baskets 9-27-2014 (2)It’s hard to believe it’s already October and the harvest season is quickly winding down; hopefully this weekend’s weather will not rain on the annual Harvest Homecoming parade. We are planning on a beautiful day!

Kenny’s  broccoli is beautiful this week and we should have plenty for early patrons.  We will have loads of fall/winter squashes available… spaghetti, acorn, butternut, etc… Also available this Saturday: fresh green beans, potatoes,  green and golden zucchini, yellow summer squash, Swiss chard, kale, cucumbers, “candy” onions, bell peppers, cabbage, jalapenos, mixed hot peppers, pablono peppers, and sweet potatoes. Kenny is also pulling radishes and a few turnips along with the first cutting of baby lettuce.  We will have Black Seeded Simpson lettuce… great for wilted lettuce salad!

Tomatoes…. we still have them and several varieties are still available. We also still have some 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 are still picking apples… Golden and Red Delicious apples will be available this week. We will also have a few Mutzu, which are great for cooking and apple butter making.

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.

Don’t forget to place your order for our “Baskets of the Week”, I need all orders by noon Friday.  As the season progresses they just get better and better, this is a picture of last Saturday’s basket.  ~ please remember to bring back your baskets.

Thanks for your patronage,

Val & Kenny
