What a week! Not too hot, not too cold, not too much rain. And we took advantage by planting almost an entire month’s worth of seedlings in a week! I no longer feel hopelessly behind – just your typical mid-June one week or so behind schedule. Not that I would know what that feels like…mid-June 2016 was even more eventful, as this adorable blessing came into our lives one year ago. Having your first child in your first year of running a farm…what was I thinking!?
The veggies took off thanks to the mild last week of spring. The harvest list is slowly expanding, including these lovely french breakfast radishes. I am fully opening up orders for Monday’s on-farm pickup, so….on your mark, get set, order away. A fortunate few will even get to sample a treat that we’ve accomplished for the first time – spring spinach!
Just a head’s up, the Douglas Farmer’s Market is taking a break around the holiday and will be back weekly starting 7/15. Also, if you can’t wait till Monday, we’re doing a pop-up market at Spring Ridge Farm in Boylston from 9:30-11:30 on Saturday morning. Spring Ridge will have all your BBQ meat needs covered.
Put your orders in online before 8am Monday. We’ll have your order available for you to pick-up from 4-7pm Monday right on the farm at 64 Potter Hill Rd in Grafton. Pickups are in the long white garage on the left across from the big red barn at the crest of the hill.
