So farming is a bit like weather forecasting. Only without the sophisticated radar and satellite systems and algorithms. We have tried in the past to predict when we will have certain crops or how many hours into a farmstand we will still be having certain items. We are not always correct, and the customer crowds have surprised us this year, but it is fun to try. With this caveat in mind, here are Farmer Luca’s predictions for this Saturday’s farmstand:
Lots and lots and lots of sweet salad mix, teen arugula, and teen spicy! Will have those three all the way till 12. We will also have some tomatoes, cherry tomatoes, cucumbers, onions, carrots, beets, sweet bell peppers, poblanos, loads of Serranos, seasoning peppers, other chilies, cilantro, Italian basil, lemon basil, lots of parsley, garlic chives, dill, dandelion greens, bunches of rat tail radish pods, lettuce heads, some figs and some watermelon but not much of those last two, zinnia flowers, lemongrass, lots and lots of ginger and turmeric, assorted butternut winter squash slices, a few bunches of radishes, a few bunches of broccoli, and assorted cooking greens!
You may spy some of our Thai or Hawaiian baby ginger at Sejah Farm market on Saturday or at Quality Foods next week!
See you down the South Shore from 10 AM – 12 noon on Saturday! Thank you for your support!
