Celebrate Earth Day

Celebrate biodiversity on Earth Day! Try one of Luca’s favorite heirloom watermelons: Ali Baba is a famous variety selected for taste and drought resistance by Iraqi farmers.

A long row of “Candy” Walla Walla variety onions at ARTfarm. They should be mild, juicy and sweet. Try some and let Farmer Luca know what you think!

Happy Earth Day! It’s a great day to renew your commitment to conservation and sustainability: turn off lights, fans and a/c, remember your reusable bags and containers, buy less packaged stuff from far away, and reduce, reuse, repair, recycle! Also, Science March on the F’sted Pier this morning at 9am in congruence with the much larger one in Washington DC. 

Saturday from 10am to 12 noon we’ll have a similar lineup to this past Wednesday’s stand: Sweet salad mix, baby arugula, baby spicy salad mix, all of our tomatoes, extra cherry tomatoes, all of our peppers, beautiful big onions, beets, lots of young, tender but huge red-skinned orange fleshed sweet potatoes, Italian basil, dill, parsley, recao garlic chives, radishes, cooking greens, dandelion greens, loads of papaya, a few pineapples, sweet juicy watermelons, lots of pumpkin, a few passionfruit…and the return of the zinnias as well. Farmer Jimmy will be on hand with fresh lamb, but only for the first half hour or so. 

Look forward to seeing you! Love, ARTfarm
