It's Rainbow Time!

Posted on August 7th, 2020 by Danielle Allen

Rainbow time is a special micro-season at the farm. It only lasts a few weeks while we're busy harvesting the full spectrum of colorful vegetables and then we look up and the fields are graced with full sky double arching rainbows day after day. Rainbows are one of the most beautiful sights nature has to offer, and we're filled with hope and awe to witness this ephemeral phenomenon. This week we're loading your shares with tomatoes, peppers, cucumbers, and summer squash. Our cucumbers and summer squash are winding down quickly, so please enjoy the last of these peak summer foods. We're also offering 15 lb boxes of canning tomatoes and BIG basil bunches in the extras store so you can save some of the rainbow for the colder, darker times ahead. Stock up by adding extras!
