The first day of summer has officially arrived and we are starting to enjoy a variety of summer veggies! Asparagus will finish up in the next week or so and strawberries are in full swing. We have started harvesting new potatoes, zucchini, broccoli, sugar snap peas and summer squash. Pickles and beans will be coming soon. There is always so much going on at the farm this time of year! The fields need to be prepped, planted, cultivated and weeded. Irrigation needs to be hooked up. Crops need to be harvested and washed. Then they are packed and loaded for markets, restaurant orders or CSA boxes. This is an exciting and busy time of year. Stay up to date with the farm by watching facebook page and website.
Here is a list of what we have available now: green onions, sweet onions, radishes, lettuce, swiss chard, kale, broccoli, sugar snap peas, new potatoes, rhubarb, asparagus, strawberries, summer squash, broccoli, zucchini, and tomatoes.
