This is by far the most abundant time of year for New England gardens, and ours is no exception. The stand at the farmers markets is bursting at the seams. We continue to bring in the summer bounty while fall produce starts creeping in.
Sadly, we got washed out on Thursday at the Grafton Farmers Market. Thanks to everyone who came out in the couple of hours before the real rain hit. If you didn’t make it before the downpour, check us out in Douglas on Saturday morning or put an order in for Monday! We have all the same great stuff in the barn on Monday as we have at the markets.
Speaking of abundance, we have a problem. A big problem. And it’s the best kind of problem to have. At least for the time being, we have waaayyyy too many tomatoes. So, until further notice, all tomatoes are $3.00 / lb. And if you buy 20 lbs or more, we’ll give you the restaurant wholesale price – $2.50 / lb. I don’t think you’ll find organic heirloom tomatoes for less anywhere, so now’s a great time to to make some sauce. Stock up on local flavor, you’ll be glad you did once winter hits.
Cabbage is back on the list – I’m pretty sure there’s some fall cabbages that are ready to pick. All the fall greens look great, so don’t forget kale, chard, mustards, and tatsoi as dinner time gets darker and the nights get cooler.
Coming soon – winter squash!
