seeder resizedLast spinach crop of 2018 planted!

This week on the farm -

 More lovely summer weather! It's hard to believe that fall is arriving this weekend .

Taking a break from picking beans... If the weather co-operates, we will have our next patch ready to pick either next week, or the following. None for this week, and I don't think any of us at the farm mind a week off picking them..

Our late planting of field cucumbers are starting, and the pattypans are doing really well – if you like zucchini, you will like these! Grill the small ones whole, and the larger ones can be stir-fried, sliced and grilled, or added to any salad or pasta dish.

 Beef – Unfortunately, we have had a delay at the butchers. Our first availability is now December 1 or so.

 Please note – as of next week, we will update our web site for Tuesday morning, instead of Monday.

  Plastic bags! Let's stop using so many. Wherever possible, we will be using fewer bags when packing your order. Hang on to your old bags and re-use them please! And remember to bring your cloth bags to market to fill up.

 Empty boxes! Don't forget to bring back your empty box, or leave it outside for pickup if you are having delivery – too good for the recycling bin!!
