The weather for Saturday looks truly uncomfortable; sunny and highs near 100 with high humidity. I’m not sure we want to stay at market all morning; things will just start wilting. We’ll see how fast sales go.
NEW THIS WEEK
Lots of beets in three versions: full bunches, loose beet greens, and loose beet roots. Also scallions, herbs, and sweet onions. These latter ones, which we started selling last week, are intensely sweet and the best we can remember tasting. They’re priced high and they’re worth every penny. We’ll also have more green garlic to tide folks over while the main harvest cures.
Clarification: these are full garlic heads, not green garlic stalks. They’re just harvested fresh instead of cured first.
DONE FOR NOW
The heat this week has finished off the peas; we’re still getting some harvest, but the plants are failing fast and the pods are starting to get fungus on them. We’ll quit while we’re ahead.
Cured head garlic should start being available in a few weeks. Also coming soon are the first plantings of green beans and summer squash.
I had a few folks regret missing the garlic last week, as it was sold out by the time they came. If you want to be sure to get it, let us know ahead of time and we’ll hold some for you.
