Ahhh, rain. I was hoping for a double meaning with the subject: first and most importantly, don’t forget to refresh the website when you click on this link to order veggies! Don’t ask me why, but if there are any website gurus out there that could set me straight please reach out!
The second meaning was supposed to be an insightful ode to this gloriously refreshing rain, which apparently all of a sudden is a thing again. However, I think I’ve fallen asleep 15-20 times in the writing of just the first paragraph. All of a sudden I’m struggling to keep up with the abundance…as it should be at the end of August.
If you’re looking for this farmer’s recommendations, the fall chard and kale look fantastic, and those beets – wow! The arugula and spicy salad mix are perfect right now and so good paired with apples, goat cheese, red onion and balsamic vinegar. We spent all day Friday putting up the above pictured bird netting for the heirloom tomatoes in the field – if that finally deters the crows, we may be in for a great fall after all. Fingers crossed! Either way we have enough of our amazing rainbow cherry tomatoes for all of Grafton’s humans and crows, so stock up.
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, but I’ll add at least a half hour (more if orders come in strong, so don’t be shy) to accommodate stocking up for your Thanksgiving meals. Choose your pickup window while checking out online: 12:30-2pm and 4-5pm 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.
