Santa’s little helpers gave Farmer Luca a hand bringing in the giant watermelons last night! Come and get ’em!

Saturday’s ARTfarm 10am-12noon! Get Greened!

Oh yes! We have salad greens! Although, perhaps calling them ‘greens’ is a bit disingenuous as they come in a variety of colors and shades. We open at 10am and the three earliest early birds can purchase a teaser half pint of sweet cherry tomatoes to add even more color to their salad. Don’t forget the cucumbers in all their various sizes, shapes and textures! We could eat salad like that for every meal and snack of the day!

Just harvested at ARTfarm, six different types of sweet lettuces range widely in texture, shape and color - from a spring green oak leaf to a fiery red ombre to a deep burgundy purple lettuce, and other greens and reds in between.

ARTfarm’s salad mixes contain many lettuce varieties, making it a gorgeous collage on the plate!

Sweet mix, spicy mix, tender young arugula, various specialty cucumbers, dandelion greens, radish greens, escarole; basil in three flavors, sage, lemongrass, garlic chives; local honey from Wanda, including marked bottles with extra pollen for extra creamy dreaminess; zinnia flowers in a mind-blowing spectrum. (Any butterflies that follow you home are definitely free of charge. Because, well you know…) Get down to the South Shore before noon!

Get Pickled for the Holiday Weekend! ARTfarm open today, 3-6pm!

A jar of freshly pickled cucumbers sitting on a fence post gleams in the late day sun, with colorful zinnias, green garden beds and the ARTfarm seedling house and farmstand in the background.

Deb’s ARTfarm pickles! You can make your own pickles this holiday season. It’s fun and easy to do. Makes a thrifty, fun, and appreciated homemade gift!

ARTfarmstand 3-6pm today! We have five different kinds of amazing, sweet crunchy cucumbers, including Asian cukes and a thin-skinned English variety. Pickling is easy, quick and makes a gorgeous gift. This lovely jar was pickled by our super volunteer Deb Mattera, and to get the recipe you’ll have to come to the farmstand and chat her up!

Also available today: microgreens, sweet mix, spicy mix, arugula, escarole, lettuce heads, dandelion greens, radishes, four flavors of basil, zinnia flowers, garlic chives, lemongrass, sage, thyme, cilantro, dill, rosemary, honey and late season mangoes. Give thanks! It rained!!
