Hello from Pitchfork & Crow ~
I’m headed out to help Jeff harvest for the Salem Saturday Market! Here’s a selection of what we’ll be bringing to market:
- Bunching Onions
- Cooking Greens
- Green Garlic
- Head Lettuce
- Salad Mix
It’s true, we’re indeed headed to the Market this week. We’ll finally have a somewhat diverse list of veggies to offer up and we hope you’ll make the time to stop by and say hi.
We’ve been staying busy with all of the farm work that arrives with the sunshine and warm weather of the summer: the weeding, the planting, the irrigating, the harvesting. We’re happy to find ourselves back in the routine and rhythm of work after the wet spring that continuously halted our plans for progress. Though we constantly feel the pressure to have earlier harvests in the spring, larger production, and fewer weeds all around, this time of year finds us relaxing just a bit. The crops in the field are finally thriving and we can breathe a little easier knowing we’ve officially made it through another spring without being defeated. We hope you’re also able to relax some now that it’s summer in the valley and enjoy all the great local produce finally available.
We hope to see you Saturday sometime between 9am and 3pm. You can find us at the Salem Saturday Market near the intersection of Winter and Union streets in downtown Salem.
