The tomatoes are coming in in all colors, shapes, and sizes! Here's Pink Berkeley Tie Die in front, with some German Johnson in the background:
We've been so busy the last couple of weeks processing the garlic crop, and picking summer veggies like tomatoes, peppers, eggplants, husk cherries, and tomatillos, that I missed writing the blog the last two weeks. Here are a few highlights from recent harvests:
Husk Cherries (also called Ground Cherries) are in now! Come have a taste if you've never had one. It's about the closest thing to a tropical fruit that we can grow in Maine. Fruity and funky.
Here's Kate packing tomatoes for you for this weekend's markets! We'll have the full variety of heirloom slicers, cherries, plums, pastes, and beefsteaks. Plus plenty of seconds for your salsa and sauce projects. Interested in a bulk order of canning tomatoes? Let us know how much you're looking for, and we'll try to set you up right.
Thanks for reading. I'll try not to miss any more weeks this summer!
Ben, family, and crew
