It really feels like summer now—because it is! Thursday was the solstice, the longest day of the year delivering maximum sunshine to our ripening crops. Flavorful summer squashes are coming in right on schedule, starting with the endearingly rotund Eight Ball and Yellow Ball and traditional zucchini. We have leafy greens in profusion: heads of lettuce, clusters of chard, bunches of collards. Scallions are plentiful and our red and green kohlrabis are crispy and sweet.For added snap in your salads and vegetable plates, we also have peppery d’Avignon radishes and delicate Hakurei turnips.
Morning Glory Farm flowers are blooming—come pick a fresh bouquet.
And of course, the solstice means Strawberry Festival is not far away. In fact, it’s today, June 23, from 11 a.m. to 3 p.m. rain or shine! We have tents and plenty of family-friendly activities, plus the Flying Elbows playing music in the loft.
