Year ending. New crops, and looking onward.

**This post is from 2020 and contains COVID-19 veggie distribution details that are no longer applicable.**

As we approach the end of the year, and the days with the least amount of sunshine, we slow down on planting and seeding a bit. Most of the fields are packed full of maturing veggies that will hold us through these colder darker weeks ahead. At the turn of the new year, we will resume our busy planting – our weekly crops like lettuces, radishes, and carrots, and also begin seeding more crops for springtime like flowers, and more tomatoes.

With the cold weather we have experienced the last few weeks, the cauliflower has begun to make heads. We grow three types of cauliflower – traditional white, traditional green, and romanesco. We will have a very limited amount of the first green cauliflower and romanesco this weekend at the market. In just a couple of weeks we expect to have bountiful cauliflower to begin including in veggie boxes! Cabbage too!

In case you missed it, we resumed our participation at the Saturday Morning Market, with extra caution and care. If you have been eagerly awaiting this return, please come visit us there from 9am-2pm. As you may know, masks are required at all locations within the farmers market. As time goes on and conditions change, we will continue to expand this sales environment.

With that said – veggie boxes and drive-thru or walk-up pickup are here to stay. Veggie boxes will remain our primary method of veggie sales! We strongly encourage you to support the online store and reserve your veggie boxes each week, as this will still be our primary method of veggie sales for the remainder of the season.

Looking forward to seeing everyone at the drive-thru or the market this weekend. Thank you for your committed support!

Your farmers,
Ellen and Cole
