Less than two weeks to Winter Solstice, Kwanzaa, Xmas and all that coquito celebrating! We are back to weekly (socially distanced) farmstands: ARTfarm will be open every Wednesday afternoon 4:30–5:30pm. For now these will be first-come, first-served socially distanced distributions, but we may revert to the online pre-order system and longer open hours, as the season gets underway and crowd sizes increase. Your feedback is always welcomed.
Wednesday 12/15/21, visit Farmer Luca in the breezy parking lot for fresh sweet salad mix, lots of radishes and garlic chives, green and yellow summer squash (aka zucchini), baby bok Choi, and lots of zinnia flowers! Early birds will also get pick of: turmeric, cilantro, dill, turnips, baby ginger (super thin skin no fibers), Thai basil, lemongrass, green hot chili peppers, sorrel in 8oz bag from Farmer Bob, and eggs from Mongoose&Zinnia (still just one or two cartons, as chickens island-wide seem to still be on a laying strike). And…
Looking to grow some food at home? Farmer Luca will have a few extra tomato slips ready for transplanting into your garden or container: Black plum, Hawaiian slicer, Cherokee green varieties. We’ll also have pineapple slips available. If you want seedlings, please text us ahead so Farmer Luca can prep them and bring them up to the gate ahead of time for you. Text your name and number, variety and quantity to the farm phone at (340)514-4873.
