Penultimate Farmstand from the Penultimate Farmer! Salad Galore!

penultimate (pĭ-nŭlˈtə-mĭt) adj.Next to last.

Cracked open a watermelon for quality control the other morning and it had an incredible varigated sunset interior.

We are almost finished for the season. We will be open tomorrow, Saturday, May 28 at our usual time from 10 AM – 12 noon. Stop by before you hit the Ag Fair this weekend!

Here’s what we’ll have for you on Saturday morning: Loads and loads of sweet salad mix! A few cherry tomatoes, a few yellow fleshed watermelons, a few pineapples, a few papaya, Italian basil, Thai basil, holy basil, garlic chives, parsley, some mild seasoning and hotter serrano peppers, lots of ginger and turmeric of various types, and a few zinnia flowers. Plus our lovely native trees and lots of pineapple slips for planting!

This season was an epic ginger and turmeric year for us. We won’t have a booth at the Ag Fair this weekend, but our ginger, turmeric and lettuce will be for sale at Sejah Farm’s booth. We’ve also been selling ginger to Quality Foods in Castle Coakley, and ginger, turmeric and other produce to Vegetarian Creations in Barron Spot — who are making wonderful tonic and elixir beverages with our ginger and turmeric. Our ARTfarm ginger even made it into one of the new beers from Leatherback Brewery.

We wish to acknowledge the deep debt we all owe to our service members and their families over many, many generations who have given their lives to defend our country and the freedoms we enjoy as US citizens. Please remember them not just this holiday weekend, but as we move toward elections. Take a little time to get informed, participate, get out and vote, and shift our territory toward betterment, as so much has been sacrificed by families and loved ones to assure you of that right.

Next Saturday will be our last farmstand of the season. We will post occasionally over the summer with volunteer opportunities and any fruit bonanzas we may need to market!

Love, ARTfarm
