Hello all!

Goin's on ...

We got a dry couple of days here, and worked like crazy to get ground tilled, fertilized and ready for planting. Some items got planted directly, many were transplanted. It felt very good to get so many things into the ground. Now we'll see if they were too late, or if they'll pull through. Fingers crossed...

[photo] Our raspberry plants have been going crazy the last week. We can't offer them online as they're too finicky and sometimes don't hold, so we'll bring them all to the table by the truck on Saturday for you to decide if they look good enough to eat.

Many thanks to Karen for helping us at the truck last week. Much appreciated!

This week's produce will include.. (new/back)

  • Greens: arugula, beet greens, cabbage, chard, lettuce (head & leaf), kale, microgreens, pea shoots, spinach, stir-fry mix and some wild things (purslane & grape leaves).
  • Veggies: beans (Black Turtle, Fava), broccoli, beets (mixed), carrots, cauliflower, cucumbers (English hothouse, slicers & picklers), garlic (fresh stems w/bulbs, scapes & pesto packs), yellow oyster mushrooms, onions, cayenne peppers [SALE], potatoes (new red), radishes, rhubarb, scallions, summer squash, tomatoes (red & mixed cherry) & zucchini.
  • Herbs: Herb sampler, basil, chives, cilantro, lemon balm, Greek oregano, French sorrel & mint (peppermint, spearmint & our meadow tea simple syrup pack).
  • Fruit & berries: blueberries, cherries, peaches & rhubarb. (Raspberries will be available at the table by the truck on Saturday.)
  • Poultry & Cheese: Stewing hens [SALE], eggs, the usual cheeses.
  • Miscellany: apple sauce, honey, maple syrup, strawberry jam.
  • Campfire wood!
Our frozen hens from last year's flock are selling very slowly. Chris said I should mention that they are perfect sources of bone broth, and that you all would know what that meant. We've got 64 birds left, and usually stop selling them during the heat of summer. This may be the last time until Fall. Please give them a try! We've got four different sizes. (And remember... bone broth, bone broth, bone broth.)

Hope there's something on the list that looks or sounds good to you. Have a good week, and we hope to see you Saturday.

Thanks for your support,
Randy, Chris & Sam
