What's Happening - August 4th & 6th

Posted on July 29th, 2020 by Kelli Kelly

Greetings Farm Fans - 

It's amazing what difference a week makes!  

We are rolling in tomatoes!  In fact, Lattin Farms in harvesting SO MANY TOMATOES that we have a special offer this week for all of you canners and salsa fans!  For as long as supplies last, you can add a 20# case of salsa/canning tomatoes to your order for $35.  These might not be the prettiest tomatoes, but they are packed with flavor and will make one heck of a marinara!

Also in the add-ons, we have a special PESTO STARTER PACK!  Our friends at Two Ravens Ranch are offering this kit which comes with a 1 gallon bag stuffed with basil and a head of their AMAZING garlic! 

The Fallon Melon Man (Pioneer Farms) is offering his first Pioneer Cantaloupes of the season!  He keeps the particular varietal a secret (and seed-saves each year) - these beauties are sweet, creamy, and delicious.

We are at a pivot-point in the season - you will start to see more nightshades (tomatoes, potatoes, eggplant, peppers) and cucurbits (cucumbers, squash, and melons).  Greens and herbs are still continuing strong - though we are light on kale this week as DFI is moving into the next bed from their succession planting.

We hope that you are enjoying your summer and, as always, stay safe and strong!

Thank you for your support of Nevada Farmers!

Kelli

PS - next week we will have Kennedy Ranch chickens back in stock.  Large birds will be available in 8-ct cut bags, small birds are spatch-cocked and perfect for grilling!
