News from the Farm | September 11, 2023

It’s getting to the time of the summer when everything looks a little dusty and tired, the people included, but that doesn’t mean there’s a shortage of neat things to see. Need some examples?

First – the arrival of Brioche last Wednesday morning! Both she and Eclaire (her mom) are doing great!

Then, there’s all the funny looking “ugly” produce: the shishito clovers, fused cucumbers, and  eggplants with noses and unicorn horns.

Plus lots of cool looking (but very hot) produce, like the purple cayenne and biquinho peppers!  

Or the cockscomb celosia?

Or the sesame? The seeds are in the pods. They won’t be ready to harvest until the pods have dried and split open.

And the number of melons, cherry tomatoes, peppers, flowers, and other staples of summer that have been picked and sent out is also amazing, but a lot harder to capture in a photo or two. But trust me, it’s impressive.
