Wow, this season is blowing by like unsecured lawn furniture in a cat 5 hurricane, folks! And these powerful gusty winds are certainly bringing back memories of September 19th. Hope everyone’s recovery is continuing to progress.

Strange new product of the week, for radish lovers: The rat-tail radish, serpent radish, or tail-pod radish is a plant of the radish genus Raphanus named for its edible radish-like seed pods.
We know customers are nervous about the end of tomato season. While this IS the time of year for the avalanche to slow down, we DO still have another planting in the ground. This final set of tomatoes is just beginning to ripen. Hopefully the wind and stink bugs will give us a break… also Grantley Samuel at GLG Produce will soon have some ripe tomatoes, and Sejah Farm is re-opening this weekend! They have some of our ginger on offer.
