Well, it feels like it has taken a LONG time to get here, but summer has arrived and we have finally have the temperatures to match!
We started harvesting new potatoes a couple weeks ago. These potatoes are a favorite for many of our customers. Wonder why we call them “new” potatoes? The potatoes are dug while the plants are still green.
The skins on the new potatoes have not had a chance to cure and are extremely tender. The potatoes are also very creamy. It is important to note that because the skins are so sensitive, they need to be stored in a bag/container in the fridge.
Here is a picture of harvesting new potatoes. They are dug with the potato digger then picked up by hand.
The cool/wet weather has set some of the crops back, but we have new produce popping up every week. Some of the new things include:
- Green, Yellow & Purple Beans
- New Potatoes
Strawberries are looking great. We also have lots of asparagus, radishes, sweet onions, greens, tomatoes & peas.
Plan a trip to the markets this weekend and stock up on all the fixings you need for you 4th of July parties. Wondering where you can find us? Here is a market schedule.
Thank you so much for your support & we look forward to seeing you soon!
