Hello Farm Friends!

Happy 4th of July weekend! Should be a pleasant low 70's in the morning, with no rain. Hope you are ready to stock up on fresh summer veggies for the long weekend of cookouts with friends and family! We have a lot of organic, Non-GMO sweet corn for you! Of course, everything we grow is organic, local and fresh. This Saturday we'll have more tomatoes than last week, and plenty of summer squash and cucumbers. Yes, we have potatoes for your homemade potato salad, green beans for your green bean salads, fresh lettuce for your crisp tossed salads, we have those sweet white superstar onions you love so much, and garlic, shallots and basil for flavoring everything!  See complete list below.

 

Please check out below what we'll have at market!

- Superstar Sweet Onions (New!):  Yes, we have those wonderful vidalia-like sweet white onions that are wonderful raw in a salad, sauteed, caramelized or grilled. 

- Shallots (New!):  If you've never tried shallots, well now is the perfect time. They are in the onion family, but have their own unique, mild flavor that chefs love.  Wonderful sauteed with any veggies, but just imagine them sauteed with green beans...yum!

- Arugula (Back!):  That spicy green you love to put on sandwiches, salads, top pizzas or just eat like a snack is here for you arugula addicts! You know who you are. ;-)

- Basil: There is nothing else like the aromatic smell or flavor of fresh basil with tomatoes or sauteed vegetables!

- Beets, Chioggia, Golden & Red: We have sweet beets that are just beautiful and tasty. If you've never tried golden beets, now's your chance.  They are sweet like other beets, but have their own unique, delicious flavor.  Try wrapped in foil and roasted on the grill or simply boiled until fork tender. Then lay on a bed of arugula, with goat cheese and walnuts....amazing! 

- Cucumbers:  We have two types of fresh crisp cukes to choose from for your salads, a traditional and an asian variety (similar to English cukes), both sweet, small seeds and tasty. 

- Garlic: We have big, freshly harvested garlic for you! If you've never tasted fresh garlic, now's your chance.  So, easy to mince! 

- Green Beans:  There is nothing like fresh, tender, tasty green beans. Absolutely delectable served together with new red potatoes.

- Lettuce:  Fresh, soft green leaf, crunchy romaine and summer crisp lettuce. Enjoy a cool, crisp salad this week!

- Sweet Red and Yellow Onions :  Freshly harvested. Tasty grilled (low to medium flame), sauteed or raw. These are crisper, fresher, and better tasting than any onions you'll get in the grocery store.

- New Red Potatoes: Freshly harvested, mountain rose red potatoes. If you've never tried potatoes fresh out of the ground, now's your chance. Sooo delicious. Wonderful prepared any way. Try in potato salad or simply boiled until fork tender and serve warm, buttered and lightly salted. YUM!

- Summer Squash:  The season is finally here and we have 3 sweet varieties for you to try, including a yellow, zucchini and zephyr.

- Sweet Corn:  We'll have a big pile of bi-colored, freshly-harvested, sweet corn for you at market!

- Tomatoes:  The first of summer tomatoes has arrived! These are not hothouse tomatoes. We'll have a mix of heirloom and regular slicing tomatoes for you to choose from. Since first flush of tomatoes, quantities are limited for now, but the tomato tidal will continue to grow with each market.  

 Don't worry about having cash at our stand, since we take credit, debit and SNAP cards.

Our experiment in growing organic sweet corn paid off!  It is probably the most pampered corn crop, but it has been worth it, because it is sweet and tasty. We hope you enjoy it. This is our first harvest of this planting, but we'll have more corn (white) at the 2 July market. We hope you all aren't going out of town that weekend so that you can enjoy it too.

It will be a beautiful summer day Saturday, so please bring or meet your friends and family at the market to get your week's supply of organic veggies, as well as meet and eggs from our other wonderful market farmers.

June is when we transition from spring crops to summer crops. This year has been like others that when the heat comes on, it comes on quick!

And we've been busy...harvesting onions and soon will be garlic. Cukes are coming on and not far behind...tomatoes.

Greetings Farm Friends,

It will be a warm, sunny day at market tomorrow. Woo Hoo! Finally! Those weeks of cold and rain have put us (and other farmers) a little bit behind on some crops, since tilling fields to prep your planting beds is bad for your soil when it is wet. But now that we've had warm and sunny weather this week, the heat is drying things out, and kicking the plants and us into high gear to try and make up for lost time. But we have plenty of veggies just the same, so come on out to the farmer's market to get your fresh, organic produce for the week!

At our stand look for:

Arugula:  We have plenty of baby, spring arugula with the spicy flavor you crave.

- Kale, Dazzling BlueTry this new tasty and pretty variety of kale with blue, green leaves similar to lacinato kale, but with a bright pink rib. Prepare just as you would any other kale.

- Lettuce:  Fresh tender bibb, butterhead, and crunchy green & red romaine. Yes, that's right, Red Romaine...it's got that great romaine flavor and crunch, but has green leaves that are wine-colored at the tips. Makes for a pretty and tasty salad.

- Radishes, Red: there's nothing like fresh, crisp and a little bit spicy spring radishes.

-  Hakurei Turnips: White, sweet and crunchy Japanese variety of turnips. Wonderful raw in salads or simply sauteed or steamed, along with, of course, the tasty turnip greens.

Greetings Farm Fans,

Spring is here and we have some really nice produce for your taste buds.

Speaking of spring, this is the perfect time of year for growing delicious cool season vegetables, especially lettuce.
