Hello from Pitchfork & Crow ~
We’re harvesting for the Salem Saturday Market! Here’s a selection of what we’ll be bringing to market:
- Apples – some yellow transparents and an early red variety too
- Broccoli – just a bit this week
- Cabbage – 5 varieties including our first ever Napa cabbage!
- Cooking Greens
- Cucumbers – picklers, slicers, and lemons!
- Head Lettuce
- Salad Mix
- Summer Squash
It’s true, we’re headed to Market tomorrow! Our summer crops are really starting to come on and we’re excited to be able to share veggies with you two weeks in a row. The heat has been mostly good for the crops at the farm and we’re especially thankful for the irrigation pipe purchases we made earlier this year. Jeff hasn’t had to spend his days hauling pipe from one end of the farm to the other and the vegetables are getting watered enough to make it through the heat of summer. The weather folks say it will be somewhat cooler tomorrow. Of course the veggies are always happiest in the morning so we suggest heading down before they wilt, or before you wilt.
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.
