Happy summer Littlewood lovers! This Tuesday the Strawberry Moon will be full (best observed Monday night) and the harvests are here to match. It has been a delight to deliver the season’s early pints to our local co-ops and see the joy of farmer’s market shoppers digging right into them. We are grateful for the local support we and other VT farms receive that allows us to sell our berries so quickly and directly after harvest. This allows us to choose varieties with the best flavors and the difference is unmistakable. Just another way everyone wins in a localized, organic food system.
We would like also to extend our gratitude to everyone who supported our seedling sale. We had another great year of faces familiar and new coming to the greenhouse to get a jump on their gardens. It seems the warm, dry May led to lots of you getting plants in earlier than usual and so we have decided to end full-services greenhouse hours for the season. We still have plenty of healthy tomatoes, sweet peppers, and annual flowers, which will be for sale at the farmers markets and by the honor system. Fall broccoli, cabbage, and cauliflower will be available this first week in July. Feel free to call or text if you want to check on the availability of anything specific.
On that note, we are off to pick for markets. We will have Strawberries, bagged greens, bunched greens, and every more as the season goes on. We look forward to catching up with you there:
- Waterbury Market: Thursdays 4-7
- Plainfield Market: Fridays 4-7
- Montpelier Market: Saturdays 9-1
