FARM STORE soft OPENING

Well, it’s about time and we are so thrilled!!

Everyone has been working hard to open this Saturday, June 15th, from 10am-4pm. Consider this a very soft opening, as we are still under construction, but we have all the basics to open up shop, beautiful veggies to sell, and a happy farmer (or two!) to talk to.

 

THE WEEK IN PICTURES

We’ve been so busy pushing to get the the weekly tasks done as we take on more harvesting each day. This week we were able to catch up on greenhouse work, start prepping a new field down the road, and get a good amount of orders out the door. While we have started to see some things go past in the nursery (sorry escarole and lettuce!) we should be able to get lots of planting in next week.

Last week; transplanting summer squash and laying plastic for peppers, eggplant, tomatoes, melons, and cucumbers.

Beautiful market day last Saturday with the first of summer squash!

Two tractor transplant team, first round of winter squash went in last Wed!

Getting the first pick off our second planting of summer squash. Soon our farm schedule will be entirely controlled by the squash harvest!

I can never get enough of the sunset light filtering through the greenhouse.

First real tomato crop since 2015! Expertly fertilized, planted, pruned, and tied by our team.

This time of year we make an effort to take crop walks a couple times a week. Plants grow so quickly with all the daylight, warm temps, and weekly rain. So many new crops coming close to maturity!! I think the whole crew is most excited about broccolini and cucumbers.

UP CLOSE WITH VEGGIES

A giant head of Boston lettuce marred by some remay and destined for our dinner plate!

Getting to the end of this rainbow chard planting, still beautiful though!

The most perfect shelling peas we’ve ever grown. Absolutely delicious, and my favorite type of pea.

Zucchini doesn’t get more perfect than this. Not too small, not too big. A high gloss indicates perfect maturity.
