It’s that time of year, the field is filling up while the greenhouse is emptying out. On Thursday alone we planted a second round of cabbage and broccoli, along with lettuce, parsley, dill, cilantro, leeks, turnips, radishes, marigolds, and scallions. We’re still concentrating on planting season, but it’s nice to take a trip down to the tunnel for some early season greens. Soon enough we’ll move the harvest from the tunnel out to the field – the kale, swiss chard, and perpetual spinach we planted earlier in May are looking great and not too too far from ready. We STILL have unlimited amounts of lettuce from the tunnel, plus more spinach, salad turnips and swiss chard this week to go along with a smattering of other veggies. So that you can have unlimited salad at your barbecues Monday, I will have your veggies ready by 11am. I’ll bag up everyone’s orders at 130 and leave them in the garage for those that can’t make it early.
Now that there’s a bit of room to move around in the greenhouse, I have realized I seeded a good amount extra cabbage, cauliflower, and broccoli seedlings. If you have room left in your garden and want to assure yourself ample veggies, order away via the link above! Although it’s a little late to put them in, they have been potted up and really shouldn’t be behind.
Veggie Ordering and Pickup Procedures: Put your veggie orders in online before 8pm Sunday. The website is a little buggy so if you don’t see a wide variety of items or you see items out of stock, try refreshing your browser. Also confirm on checkout that you have the correct number of each item in your cart. The two pickup windows are working well so far, so we’ll keep it going. Choose your pickup window while checking out online: 1-2pm and 4-6pm Monday on the farm at 64 Potter Hill Rd in Grafton. Pickups are in the long white garage on the left across from the beat up tan and red barn at the crest of the hill.
