|Where we’ll be:
Pawtuxet Village Farmers Market
Thundermist West Warwick Farmers Market
Another beautiful week at the farm. We are appreciating every minute of it, as we know how quickly the weather will change. Although the temperatures are still summer-like, we have definitely notice a change in light. Shadows are different as is the need to use headlights when driving home at 7:00 in the evening. No noticeable leaves falling (yet) but one chilly night will change that.
As autumn will soon be here, we are prepping for the cooler months to come. The cucumber and tomato plants have been removed from the hoop house and are being replaced with fall crops such as arugula and spinach. Winter Rye, a popular cover crop, has being applied to rows in the field to both protect the soil as well as making the soil more suitable for crops in the spring.
Although we are prepping for the upcoming months, we are also working hard at maintaining and harvesting out late summer produce.
This week we will be bringing the following items to market:
Tomatoes (sadly, the last of them)
Chioggia Beets (with tops)
Skyphos Butterhead Lettuce
Hot Peppers (Ghost, Habanero, Serrano, Jalapeno)
Beautiful flowers including Lisianthus, Zinnias, Fresh Lavender, and Statice
Culinary Herbs and Teas
