Despite the break from the CSA sessions, we are keeping ourselves plenty busy harvesting for the farmers’ markets and preparing for the fall. The butternut squashes are looking great and due to be picked from the field soon (albeit early, of course). The greenhouse is loaded with seedlings of kale, spinach, chard, and lettuces slated to be planted into the ground within the next couple of weeks. More and more seeds continue! And with slightly cooler weather outside, it’s hard not to get excited about fall.
In the meantime, we still have quite a bit to offer at the farmers’ markets for our old and new friends alike. You can stop by the Chapel Hill Farmers Market today (3-6pm) and find Meredith with a very colorful display of produce:
Eggplant (asian and globe), peppers (from sweet bell to firey poblanos), slicing tomatoes and cherry tomatoes, lettuce heads, cilantro, basil, okra, summer squash, zucchini, cucumbers, potatoes, garlic AND eggs!
If you cannot join Meredith today, you can find her again on Saturday (8-1) at the Chatham Mills Farmers’ Market in Pittsboro.
See you there!
