I've been caught up in the late summer doldrums, so it's been almost a month since my last post. There's a lot of catching up to do.
Let's do it by photos, with commentary where warranted.
|Savoie Farms adds a bit of levity to its tomatoes.|
|Three Springs Fruit Farm mixed cherry tomatoes and mini eggplants for a pretty picture|
|Beechwood Orchard's plums have been spectacular this season|
|Tom Culton has featured lima beans the past few weeks|
|Rainbow chard always makes a good photo.|
These are from Blooming Glen.
Headhouse News Note
Tom Culton says he planted his mirai corn late this year, so if you've missed it that's why. It should show up in the next week or two. Mirai is a Japanese hybrid which is exceptionally sweet and tasty. In late August Tom had a red sweet corn variety, for which is charged a buck an year. The going price this year at farmers' markets has been 50 to 75 cents.
