Happy couple last days of 2021! Here’s hoping next year will morph into something magical and highly adaptive. 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/days soon for safety. Your feedback is always welcomed.

Wednesday afternoon 12/29/21 might be your last chance to see Farmer Luca this year… in the breezy parking lot once again: Sweet salad mix, baby spicy salad mix, BABY ARUGULA’s back kids!, cucumbers, long green beans, summer squash, red and white turnips, radishes with cookable green tops, cilantro, dill, garlic chives, Italian basil, baby ginger, baby turmeric, chili peppers, Swiss chard, kale, dandelion greens and zinnias… plus a few early bird specials… shhhhhhh…

and eggs from Mongoose&Zinnia (still just one or two cartons, as our chickens are STILL on a laying strike). And…

Looking to grow some food at home? Farmer Luca still has a few extra Black Plum tomato slips ready for transplanting into your garden or container (this is a cherry-sized oval shaped sweet, flavorful and rich tomato for eating and cooking). 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.

The painting above is an original artwork by Marina Gasperi recently shown in her exhibition, “Small Life” at Café Christine Tues-Fri 10am-2:30pm. The exhibit is officially closed now as the collectors are picking up the purchased works, but we’ll leave a few pieces up through January 11th or so, and this painting and many others are still available at the Café as high quality art print cards. Marina has also created some adorable Chicken vs. Mongoose holiday ornaments out of recycled irrigation supplies. Please visit the Café in Christiansted over this holiday time and enjoy this ARTfarm production!

Love, ARTfarmers
