OK, so last week I was completely wrong on my market prediction. It was not a “small stand”, it was our best market of the year so far. We ended up with far more beets than I thought, the full harvest of carrots was quite a pile, the snow pea harvest ended up being larger than expected…and I looked like a fool. Well, it WILL be smaller this week, but not for long as most of our summer items are growing nicely.
NEW THIS WEEK
Possibly the first few pints of Fin de Bagnol filet beans; these are starting to produce and may have enough for a small market harvest.
Bundles of small-medium beets, Swiss chard, kohlrabi, snow peas (at their end), mixed summer squash, fresh garlic heads, and scallions.
POSSIBLE IF WE DECIDE TO
There is a chance of items like basil, cilantro, parsley, and fennel bulbs depending on last-minute decisions.
Carrots were a one-time item. Clearly people want carrots, and every year we get better at growing them. We’re doing more this fall, when they should be sweeter and even better. Peas are done after this week, because the plants stopped flowering in the heat.
Fennel is close, likely next week if not this one. Fin de Bagnol beans for sure next week. Cucumbers and tomatillos are flowering now. Much more on the way for mid-summer.
