It was an interesting start of the season with the late spring of wet and cold weather. Last year we had started planting in the first week of May. This year we weren’t able to till until the end of May! Even so, we were able to plant in our new hoop house and we had started many more seedlings this year, which gave everything a good head start.
We have been very fortunate to have some visiters to our farm during the last couple months who have helped us with the garden. Roosa (from Finland) and Marion (from France) came in May and helped us with seedlings and with putting up our hoop house. (Check out our website for more details on The Tunnel!) In June, Mirjam came from Germany and stayed with us for almost three weeks. She worked a lot in the Tunnel and in the fields, watering and transplanting seedlings. Clement is here now from France and has been working hard in the field. We love having people come work with us. Everyone has different experiences to share!
Throughout the summer we will have a variety of vegetables at our table, as well as recipes to go with them! We are excited to share our food with you!
This month we will have: Rhubarb, Lettuce, Green Onions, Peas, Radish, Salad Mix, Beets, Swiss Chard, Summer Turnips, Kale, Carrots and Broccoli!
Later in the season we will have: Yellow and Green Beans, Beets, Cucumbers, Carrots, Leeks, Kohlrabi, Salad Mix, Kale, Onions, Radish, Zuchinni, Winter Squash, Summer Turnips, and Tomatoes!
We love hearing from our customers, so feel free to contact us. We encourage you to come and visit us and be a part of the food you eat! Please call us to arrange a visit. You can find us at the Beresford Market every Saturday from 8-1. We hope to see you there!
