ARTfarm Last Monday, Open 1 Hr 3–4 p.m. Today

Greetings ARTfarm supporters!

After many months of green abundance and tomatoes galore, the season is naturally starting to slow down. We have experienced extreme dryness and drought conditions this spring, which are bringing the “summer” season to us a few weeks sooner than usual, perhaps.

We have a limited range of items today in a small quantity, due both to weather conditions and because Farmer Luca is feverishly preparing for his art show which opens on Friday. (Please come and enjoy his new paintings of the farm and island, and new works from Mike Walsh, from 5–8 p.m. at the Walsh Metal Works Gallery in Peters Rest this Friday evening!)

So, this will be our last Monday farmstand for this season. We will only be open for an hour this afternoon, from 3-4pm. (We will be open regular hours Wednesdays and Saturdays for another month or two, then just Saturdays through the summer!) We have small amounts of salad greens, tomatoes, basil, garlic chives, onions, and giant zinnias today. And from our partner I-Sha we will have vegan ice cream in a virtual rainbow of different local fruit flavors!

Thank you as always for your support of local farmers and producers, and local artists!
