Tomatoes in June?

Tomatoes in June_As many of you know, our 30′ x 76′ greenhouse was put up at the end of 2017. We were very fortunate to get a grant for two greenhouses last year.  The second one, will be going up in the spring/early summer.

We will have spring veggies in this greenhouse that will be ready in the spring (April/May).  Yum!  Can’t wait!  Also in this greenhouse, we will be growing, tomatoes, cucumbers, eggplant, basil and green peppers.  So….what does this mean?  It means, that we should have these crops ready one month earlier than they are typically ready in this area.

I know, I hear you saying, yeah but greenhouse tomatoes – they don’t taste like anything!  Ours, will have taste and they will actually taste like a tomato because of the way that we grow.  So look for us at the markets this summer with crops a bit earlier than the other folks.  Oh yeah, if you want to make sure you get some and don’t miss out if you come late to the market, think about signing up for our free choice CSA (you pick what you want) and your bag will be already set aside with the products that you want that week so you won’t miss out!  If you sign up by February 1st, you get an extra 10% in purchasing power.  Check it out here.  If you want to learn how to get a free CSA, check it out here.

Summer markets end

Today was the last day for the summer markets for the season. We start our winter market schedule on Thursday from 3-6 at the Skate Escape in Laconia on Court Street. A change from last year. This time it will be every Thursday through May – a total of 34 weeks!

Also we note our blog followers have doubled in the past week. Not sure how this happened but THANK YOU! Let us know if you have any questions or want us to focus on something in particular.

We brought our Hakurei Turnips for the first time to the markets this week. They were well received. A small nice white turnip – radish size. You can eat them raw, sliced in a salads and we’ve discovered so many recipes for them – not just salads. We are handing out about 5 recipes to go along with the turnips for serving suggestions. There are many tasty ones that we are looking forward to trying.

Gratitude

Another successful Saturday’s farmers market.  Would like to thank all of our Customers.  It is so nice to see everyone again this summer from the long winter reprieve.   It’s so nice to hear the words “Thank you for doing what you do”.  It is very welcome after a week of no supper Because you are in the garden harvesting until dark or weeding or some other farm chore?  Our customers are the best.  You are our support system!
