A Little of This, Lots of That, feat. TOMATOES! 10am – 12 noon

  

ARTfarm zinnias at dawn.

 
 

The sheep tend to graze more heavily in the dawn hours, when things are cool and there is still some dew on the grass.

  

When it’s still too dark to start harvesting, some work begins with organizing for the market.

 Good Morning! Here’s what we’ll have today down the South Shore, in rough order of quantity:

A LITTLE BIT OF: micro spicy, teen arugula, summer squash, wild cucumbers, fresh baby ginger, kale, escarole, lettuce heads, fresh Mediterranean figs. 
RESPECTABLE SUPPLY OF: heirloom tomatoes, pumpkin, onions, scallions, radishes, carrots, lemon basil, holy basil, dill, cilantro, recao, garlic chives, Italian parsley, edible yellow marigold flowers, fresh local neighborhood eggs from happy hens at Yellow Door Farm (Heather & Matthew) and Nelthropp Naturals (Jimmy & Barbara), passionfruit.

BOATLOADS OF: sweet salad mix, cherry tomatoes, slicing tomatoes, green bell peppers, red serranos, Indian chili peppers, Italian basil, fresh-cut zinnia flowers!

  1. FYI I left a visitor comment on your FB page – regarding whether you want to add a Cover Photo to your event ( if you are just using an iPhone it probably doesn’t let you ) but Events show up way better if you can slap some tomatoes in there thx

    • I did receive your comments. I have been trying to get an event photo to stick, both on a smart phone and on a desktop and it just does not seem to want to load. It says it’s uploading but it never seems to finish. Not sure what the problem is but our connection seemed slow this morning. We will keep trying! It seems ridiculous that you can’t add a photo from a smart phone.
