The recent storm dumped a tremendous amount of rain making it easy for the wind to knock things over. I gently stood each fallen plant back up. Many accepted my efforts and are mostly upright again except for a few of the huge sunflowers. Somehow we never lost our power. I know many of you are still without it and those of you without generators must be getting a little tired of roughing it right about now. I hope by the time you read this your lights are on, your toilets are flushing and your showers are flowing!
We’re light on the greens this week with no kale, chard or collards. The previous high heat spell made them question whether or not they really wanted to be here! I’m letting them rest and regroup this week encouraging them to regrow for us. I’ve seeded more of each in case they don’t cooperate. We will though, have some young lettuces, baby bok choy and escarole. And……….the tomatoes are here — slicers and cherries. Time for fresh salsa and tomato/basil salads, yum!
This week is fingerling potato week with french fingerlings and a Peruvian fingerling called papa cacho. Both are delicious.
At the market this week:
- baby lettuce
- baby bok choy
- green beans
- herbs – basil, parsley, dill, cilantro
- potatoes – fingerlings
- winter squash – delicata
Open Fridays 11am – 6pm
Love delicata squash! See you tomorrow. I’m planning at least 2 hours of unreliable farmhand work!! ~Doreen

I love the way you communicate on your website! I have had a busy week so far, but it gets light towards the end. If you need me again just say so and I will be glad to pitch in. Was busy on Friday but hope to come by your market this week.
