- Sweet little cherry tomatoes by the pint at ARTfarm.
Wednesday’s farmstand: our own South Shore pineapples, sweet and spicy salad mixes, a few heads of lettuce, sweet little cherry tomatoes and slicer tomatoes in every shade of tomatoey goodness, frozen jackfruit (tastes like every tropical fruit melded into one!), pumpkin in giant orange crescents sliced to order, mustard greens, scallions, onions with the greens still on them, fresh herbs, REALLY tasty cucumbers, peppers, mangoes so soft and stringless that teeth are not required, Sweetface chocolates, Feel I’s ice creams, and more… Come enjoy the lovely cool breeze on the South Shore and fill your basket with locally grown treats!
No day is sacred when the compost needs to be made. Here’s Luca enjoying the stinkiness of rotting plant and animal material. We primarily compost fish and lobster carcasses from some of our restaurant chefs, and spent grains from the local microbrewery. It’s powerful.
Saturday’s farmstand: pineapples, beets, carrots, chard, salad mixes, tomatoes, jackfruit, pumpkin, arugula, onions, herbs, cucumber, eggplants, peppers, mangoes, scallions, more… Every vitamin you need is here! Come out this lovely cool morning! We want to see you!!!
There are at least a dozen species of flowering trees going off this month at ARTfarm and around the South Shore zone, and our newly recolonized beehive is working very hard to keep up.
We got a bunch of lino-block printing materials and tools to make new t-shirts for the farm. We haven’t had farm t-shirts since Southgate and it is time to bring sexy back!
Here’s the latest sketch that wound up as our ad for St. Croix This Week magazine, anybody want this on a shirt?
Things are pretty wet around here. Just when we think it is going to finally stop raining, it starts again. We had to cancel a school’s field trip visit to us today because it was just too muddy.
Hoping that the greens can tough it out and the abundant frogs locate the abundant caterpillars. We’ll be open for Saturday’s farmstand at 10am but it will be interesting to see what we can harvest! Hopefully it will dry out in the next few days.
