Just like that, there seems to be a real shift in the season. In a short span of time we’ve gone from cool crisp rainy winter bumper-crop weather to parched dryness, constant winds and brushfires. Our tomatoes are getting a little bit smaller, and dry season plants are putting out blooms as the landscape transforms back into desert. Flavors get stronger. Quantities will reduce as we shift from farming to fire prevention.
Saturday morning treats: Lots of sweet salad mix, good amounts of baby spicy salad mix, loads of tomatoes, loads of cherry tomatoes, a few cucumbers, a few bunches of carrots, a few sweet potatoes, peppers (sweet bell, seasoning and hot varieties), large Asian radishes, a few bunches of beets, baby ginger and turmeric root, garlic chives, cilantro, dill, parsley, Italian basil, lots of papaya, good quantities of figs, a few bunches of cooking greens, onions, scallions, and zinnia flowers.
If you see a brushfire or smoke, even on land that appears fallow or uninhabited, please call 911 immediately and report it. If it’s within a mile or two of ARTfarm, call or text us second and let us know. Thank you!
