We’ve officially started harvesting summer squash and cucumbers three times a week, which for us farmers is a sure sign of high summer! Our last seeding in the greenhouse was this past week, which means that all of the future vegetables for the 2019 season are currently growing. It’s always amazing to think about how long certain crops take to grow– Brussels sprouts, celeriac, and leeks have all been in the ground for weeks and yet we won’t be seeing them until the fall. We might be waiting a while yet for those, but our cherry tomatoes have started to ripen, and the very first of our slicing tomatoes are starting to blush! Won’t be long now…
This week we’ll have many of the usual (green) suspects, as well as some summery veggies!
Kale, chard, lettuce, red and green cabbage, scallions, radishes, beets, summer squash, cucumbers, snow peas, garlic scapes, and Tropea summer onions!
As a reminder, please park on the road and walk down the gravel driveway if you are coming to the on-farm pick-up. Thanks!
