Given the heat and the nice rain last week, the market is now abundant with summer produce, so come on over! We have:
- Sweet Corn
- Green Beans
- Cucumbers (all sizes)
- Peppers, both green bell and sweet banana
- Egg plant
- Red Potatoes
- Yellow summer squash and zuchinni
Tomatoes: Finally, this morning we picked our first half bushel of field tomatoes, but they are coming on slowly. It will be several more weeks before we will have U-Pick tomatoes. We still have our greenhouse tomatoes in the meantime. Plus…..since we have now taken out our greenhouse for the year, we stripped the plants of the remaining green tomatoes, so we are offering a special on green tomatoes:
Green Tomatoes: 1/2 bushel for $5.00 !! In addition to making fried green tomatoes, you can make green tomato relish and even salsa!
Blueberries: Our blueberries are just finishing for the year, we will hopefully have them through this coming weekend.
Peaches: We have a light crop of peaches again this year due to the spring freeze, as well hail as damage from the May hailstorm , but we hope to have some in about 10 days to two weeks.
Melons: Both watermelon and canteloupe are still several weeks away.
Pears: We have a great crop of pears and will give you an update about mid August as to when they will be ready.
New!! Baked Goods!! Starting this week, on Fridays and Saturdays, we will have homemade baked goods. Michaela (who you will find working in the market most afternoons) and her mother, Patti Eberhard, are the bakers, and I can personally attest to how great their baked goods are! They will have pies (made with our fruit), cookies, cupcakes and cinnamon rolls.
Lawn services. Several of you who have summer homes here or are leaving on vacation have asked me about whether I know of anyone who can help with your lawn. In fact, my son Jay, who also works here on the farm and many of you know, has a side business of lawncare services, including mowing, trimming and this fall, leaf pick up. He can be reached on 517-507-2525 or at JayKitzinger@verizon.net.
Thanks as always, for supporting us by buying fresh, local produce and other goods from us. Hope to see you soon.
