Hello from Pitchfork & Crow ~
We’re harvesting for the Salem Saturday Market! Here’s a selection of what we’ll be bringing to market:
- Bok Choy
- Cookin’ Greens
- Garlic Scapes
- Green Garlic
- Head Lettuce
- Potatoes (German Butterballs)
- Salad Mix
- Spinach (limited supply)
Today is the summer solstice, the official beginning of summer. We’re headed to Market tomorrow and we’re looking forward to a sunny summer day! In the last couple of weeks since we’ve seen you, we’ve been working away here at the farm. There’s been so much growth on the farm in the last month. The veggies in the fields all love the long days leading up with the solstice. The cucumbers and summer squash are on the verge of exploding! We’re sure we’ll have enough to share at Market soon. The weeds have enjoyed the extra sunlight too, and we’re constantly doing battle on that front. We started sowing the earliest of the overwintering crops this week. So soon the seasons shift. We’ve been looking forward to summer and we’re glad it’s arrived!
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.
