For Sept 16

Posted 9/13/2016 12:54pm by Emily Best.

Peak September weather happening over here right now: cool mornings, gentle breezes, clear skies. And that weather leads to the delights of fall, many of which are starting to appear on our list!  

We are seeing broccoli starting to come in – the photo at left is the broccoli growing at Walnut Ridge Farm run by Jake and Sara Stoltzfus. They are new broccoli growers this year and so far, it is looking beautiful! I’m excited to eat my first broccoli of the season – I remember being so surprised at how flavorful and sweet the New Morning Farm broccoli was the first time I tried it.   We’re also getting heavy into winter squash, potatoes, sweet potatoes and radishes. BUT – we don’t want to rush you. We also still have lots of MELONS, TOMATOES, and PEPPERS available!  

HIGHLIGHTS:  

KIWI BERRIES: This is it, folks. You’ve got this one chance to get your kiwi berries and then they’ll be gone. The growers at Kiwi Korners faced a greater than 80% crop loss this year, so supplies are very limited. I personally LOVE these tiny hardy kiwis and suggest them to everyone to try!  

HEIRLOOM TOMATOES: Hope you’re not over tomatoes yet because we’re still going! Lots of beautiful mixed heirlooms available this week.  

FINGERLING POTATOES: Check out our post on Instagram today for a virtual tour of our fingerling varieties. The LaRattes and the Purple Peruvian are both coming from Steve Stoltzfus at Hickory Nut Farm (and he is very proud of his purple taters!)
