For Tuesday Sept 6

Posted 9/2/2016 12:26pm by Emily Best.

Happy Labor Day weekend! We made it! I personally was quite excited this morning to feel the cool weather, make myself some hot coffee and to wear a light sweater into work. But I’m a fall girl, so this is my favorite time of year. For our growers, it’s a bittersweet time of year. Many are still hustling to harvest the summer veggies, while scrambling to get cover crops in the ground, or mowed on time, and seeding the fall greens. But soon, eventually, things will slow down.  

You’ll start seeing our product availability start to shift: more sweet potatoes, potatoes, and winter squash. We got in the first watermelon radishes and celery this week. We’ve finally got a few cases of head lettuce available. 

HIGHLIGHTS: LABOR DAY WEEKEND EDITION  

MELONS: LOTS OF MELONS still to sell, especially watermelons. Lots of seedless, sugar baby, and yellow doll. Ask Natalie if you’re interested in a bin or bulk purchasing. Need to move!  

RED RASPBERRIES: Our raspberries are coming from New Morning Farm right next store. Their patch is tucked into the hillside, with forests on two sides. Natalie and I both have spent time picking those berries (well, not this year), and it’s an almost meditative experience, besides the scratches on your hands! The berries are just beginning to pick up so we hope to have more in the coming weeks.  

PEPPERS: We’re starting to see more varieties of peppers become available, especially the Carmen Corno di Toro and Padron varieties that were in such high demand earlier in the season. This is also when HOT peppers start heavily producing, so check out our list.
