June is here and boy are we excited! Justin brought our produce to the first of the year Plainfield Farmers’ Market on friday afternoon and had a great time. We were pleased as punch to have kale and chard bunches for the market, what an unexpected surprise that was! Thanks to everyone who came to the market. We hope to see you there next week!
It’s been a marathon week here at the farm. Thanks to the fabulous work of two seasoned farm workers, Ryan and Amanda, we were able to finish getting all the peppers, paste tomatoes, summer squash, zucchini, cukes, melons and most of the winter squash in the ground on friday. Our first planting of sweet corn is in the field. Greenhouses 5 and 4 are filled with cherry and grape tomatoes, slicers, eggplant and yellow peppers. We continue to harvest leaf lettuce for the Plainfield Coop, rhubarb for Hunger Mountain Coop and braising greens for Farm to Table.
Our strawberries down by the river look fabulous! I’ll keep you appraised of their status but it looks like the last week in June we’ll be open for pick-your-own. Our strawberries will also be at Hunger Mountain Coop and at the Barre and Plainfield Farmers’ Markets!
