The harvest of some of our fall-oriented vegetables has been little delayed by the above-average temps and dry conditions of this first half of September, but we now have Salad Mix in abundance to harvest for you. We also have the first of our Broccoli/Broccolini to harvest, plus the first Golden Beets, Radishes, and Sweet White Turnips. (Carrots, our other fall root vegetable, is about 100 times harder to convince into existence than the other root veggies, and takes 3 times as long to grow. So any potential Carrot harvest is still a good ways off.) BUT...we still have hundreds of Tomatoes! Our late-season variety has just burst into glory and the fruits are small but deliciously red and flavorful. We also have hundreds of Cherry Tomatoes and we want you to eat them up!
Sweet Peppers, Summer Squash, Cucumbers, Shishito Peppers, Eggplants, and Beans are all still holding strong, so you get to eat well this week whether you choose more fall-like veggies or more summer-like veggies or a combo of both.
1) SAVE THE DATE - Our Annual Farm Share Member Social is on Sunday, October 20th from 2-5pm. We'll send out an evite asking for rsvp's, but please plan to join us for a chance to spend time among the fields that have been providing for you, chat with us farmers, meet other members, and enjoy some nice food and drink. We run this as an "optional potluck" meaning you can bring something to share if you'd like, but feel no obligation. We prepare some food, provide some drinks, and everything always works out wonderfully.
2) We've started a new Instagram page to showcase some of our farmhouse meals. Give BfFarmFood a follow if you'd like inspiration about what to do with the vegetables we grow. We're not food photographers nor professional chefs, but we sure eat well! We'd love you to see what it looks like and get ideas for your meals.
Thank you for being the most important part of our farm!
