Just wanted to share some photos of a few new crops that have come into the picture, as well as provide a look at what’s on the horizon. Due to a generous planting of beans, tomatoes, and broccoli this season, we have been bringing in quite a bounty week after week! As you can see below, butternut squash will be ready soon, while our acorn and delicata was just harvested this past week. The first two photos here of acorn squash and peppers were taken by shareholder Christine Malboeuf, and I simply couldn’t help but share them!

Last week the Ward’s crew uplifted loads of potatoes from below the soil using their potato lifter device, resulting in a total of 58 crates worth of potatoes that we harvested that day!
As if it had lipstick on
Several of our markee crops have grown significantly within the past week due to the ideal combination of sunshine and rain. It won’t be long before you are freezing your tomatoes and enjoying some eggplant parm! Here are a few glimpses into some of our soon-to-be favorite crops.
The green will be red in no time!
The peppers have been growing like bamboo this past week…Well not really, but they’re almost there!
