We have (I think) a pretty neat event lined up for you this Saturday at the Midtown Farmers Market. This is a food truck, but a totally different kind of food truck. This is a mobile food garden in the bed of an old pick-up truck! Come on out to the Midtown Farmers Market this Saturday May 16th - gawk, ask questions, show the kids how their vegetables grow. Children can help harvest greens, pull radishes, and go on an underground treasure hunt for for new potatoes. Learn how you can grow an astonishing amount of food in a fairly small space, and maybe get your hands a little dirty. We had a lot of fun putting this together - I do hope you'll come visit this weekend!
Also, bring your own creative containers filled with garden soil - it could be an old boot, a bucket, a shopping cart, you name it - and I will bring easy-to-grow vegetable seeds and help you plant it with edibles. Recycle something you don't use anymore! If it will hold dirt and drain water, we can make it grow something. The most creative garden container will win $10 in Market Bucks to spend at the farmers market. Let me share my passion for growing good food with you, and maybe spark a desire to get your own little veggie patch growing!
Here on our own farm, after quite a bit of rain this weekend and ever-lengthening warm days, it looks like most of the crops doubled in size overnight. Plants grow and ripen so quickly over the next couple of months, we're often discovering 'surprise' harvests on Friday that were nowhere near ready when I do my Monday-morning crop walk. Lots of new items this week, including broccoli rabe, broccoli, cauliflower, and beautiful red-blushed bibb lettuces. Squash, cabbage, and beets are right around the corner!
Thanks so much for your business, eat well, and have a great week!
