The final week of the harvest season are here.
This Friday, we will be harvesting and gathering all the last fresh vegetables and flowers that the farm has to offer for the season!
Then, we will turn it all under, and the harvest season will be finished.
So let it be known: we would LOVE to see you at the farmers market this Saturday. We’d love to get the last harvest into your hands. And we’d love to wish you all well as we head into summer!
Then, we will return to the farmers market in October.
Here’s what we’ll have in abundance this week:
Lettuce, green beans, kale, collard greens, malabar spinach, bok choi, baby greens, dandelion greens, celery, fennel, radishes and turnips, scallions, carrots, eggplant, butternut squash, squash and zucchini, cucumbers, cherry tomatoes, basil, cilantro, dill, hardy culinary herbs, sweet peppers, hot peppers, and cut flowers of all types (and more). We will truly be harvesting everything that remains from the farm, so the offering will be abundant and diverse.
If you’re looking for ways to stock up and save food for the summertime off-season, now is a great time to revisit our blog post: Make the harvest last through the off-season. Also, it would be a great time to print out the Veggie Storage Guide (which is a chart guide to how to store veggies at home for longest shelf-life).
Here is a reminder about Farm Membership enrollment: Early-enrollment runs for exactly one more week, through June 1st.
Early-enrollment is your chance to get the best deal on Membership for the coming season.
We are so grateful for all of the returning members and first-time members that have signed up for Farm Membership already for the coming year! We’re excited to grow veggies for all of you next season!
We’re looking forward to the farmers market this weekend and sharing the last from our fields.
It has been a bountiful season, and the crops have grown tremendously. This milestone season marks 10 years growing vegetables for the Tampa Bay area. We’re thankful for your participation in our farm over the last 10 years, and your support of our work!
See you this weekend,
Ellen and Cole
