resized potatoes The potato crop is looking great!

 What's happening on the farm?

The farm was in a lucky location on Saturday evening, and we had about 1/4 inch of rain... More would be nice, and we hope to see it on Monday. Sunshine is great, but sometimes too much of a good thing!

This week, we have some Red Butter Lettuce to harvest, and a few more Romaines.

I'm not happy with our first crop of beets, but we'll try and find some that are large enough to harvest this week. The carrots are looking better, and we can start harvesting them soon~

 This week's pesto is Kale with Garlic Scape, made with cashews this week.

 Orillia people – please note that we are at the market this weekend, July 21, but will be away the following Saturday July 28. (What! This is unprecedented!! But it's a wedding...) So please use the Thursday delivery option for July 26! Back the week after...

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!!
