We picked a few tomatoes.
Oh, and here’s a few more …
And oh look! There are some over here …
You get the idea. 🙂 Tomatoes anyone?
Once the summer really gets underway, I find that I have very little time to blog – primarily because vegetables are taking up a lot of time.
Tomatoes, tomatoes, tomatoes! The heirlooms have finally arrived! Black Krims Cherokee Purples, Brandywines, Mortgage Lifters, Amana Oranges, and more are now available. Can’t wait to share these with people at farmers market in the morning!
We also still have cucumbers and a few summer squash. Winter squash (butternut and spaghetti) will be available soon. Our okra is sloooooow this summer. And the deer like the okra plants. A lot. Don’t hold your breath for the okra.
But tomatoes … boy, do we have tomatoes. 🙂
(Thanks to the Ark City Traveler for taking this great photo of our veggies!)
Vegetable time is almost here! We have picked the first few tomatoes from the high tunnel, including this beauty, here. Probably won’t be enough for farmers market tomorrow, but hopefully by next week, we will have enough to share.
It took great restraint to not gobble this up on the spot.
We will have a few summer squash at market, though – tiny, sweet pattypans.
Zucchini almost ready to pick
Gage says there are a few cucumbers ready, too, but I am skeptical. You almost have to squint to see them here.
Another tomato, blushing on the vine, almost ready to pick! Get ready!
While our fresh veggies are not quite ready, we will still be at the Ark City Farm and Art Market today from 4:30 – 6:30 pm.
We will have thornless blackberry bushes, chocolate mint plants, pecans, and homemade jams and jellies.
New this week, we have wine grape jelly and cherry jam. We also still have a few jars of delicious blackberry jam left, and some tomato jam left. Tomato jam has been our most popular seller this spring.
Check back for an update on vegetables coming SOON!
