Well, after last week’s torrential rains on Friday, I finally bit the bullet and asked my in-laws if I could use a part of their carport to set up in. They of course said yes because they love me! I thought about setting up in the yard again today, but in the carport I don’t have to chase the shade and that sounds good to me.
This week we have: red and white sweet candy onions, cabbage, tomatoes, kohlrabi, kale, chard, black berries, zucchini, cucumbers, sweet potatoes, beets, carrots, egg plant, new potatoes, green beans, carrots, peas (yes, it’s July 30th and we are picking peas), jams and jellies, cilantro, basil, dill, sage, tarragon, oregano, parsley, thyme… there’s always something I’ve forgotten. We have a few ears of shucked sweet corn today. Tomorrow we will have lots more sweet corn and some really good mini cantaloupes that have almost paper thin rinds. Friday we should have peaches, bigger cantaloupe and watermelon.
Stop by the farm from 9-1 today through Friday or by the Painted Corners on 96 across from the Pink in Lomax from 3-7 today through Friday and on Saturday from 9-2 or at the Burlington market in Crapo Park Thursday evening from 5-7 or at the Keokuk mall Saturday morning from 7-11.
