Wednesday farmstand, 3-4:30pm: The tomato plants this year are unbelievably productive. We’ve been harvesting very large quantities of big beautiful sweet juicy slicer tomatoes, and tons and tons of yellow, orange, purple, and red cherry tomatoes; plus sweet tender heirloom tomatoes, the last of our sweet corn, juicy watermelon, crunchy radishes, bunny-thrilling carrots, onions so good they’ll make you cry, cooking greens loaded with nutrients, dandelion greens, escarole, rich creamy Thai pumpkin, last of the small butternut winter squashes, baby ginger and turmeric, seasoning peppers, yellow chili peppers, Thai chili peppers, serranos and green bell peppers, cilantro, dill, Italian parsley, Thai basil, garlic chives, cheery zinnias.

Early birds may score some figs and some broccoli. Late birds will get most of almost everything and enjoy easy parking, zen-like calm and relaxed conversation with the farmer. Plus, occasional late bird specials and surprises. 😂 Stay healthy, eat your veggies!
