Saturday is our last 2012 Farmers’ Market in Darius Miller Park in Princeton. We just harvested some horseradish and our sunchoke crop. We are also bringing our wildflower honey, plenty of freshly dug potatoes, plus garlic, garlic chives, peppermint, dill, cilantro, black walnuts, chestnuts, popcorn, a few ground cherries, and the last of our rhubarb. We also will have a good variety of Plow Creek Bakery goods. A bright, sunny, beautiful fall day is forecast. Come on out and see us.


planting sweet potatoesThis afternoon our team made quick work of the sweet potato planting. They are south of the strawberries this year. We nestled them them into a raised bed, dug by tractor and then enhanced by hand with hoes. Meg is pictured in the foreground, with trowel in hand.

After finishing, we all put a couple hours of weeding into the strawberries. This year we are trying to get the entire farm team together once each week for a cooperative project. With so many different crops and customers to care for, even community farmers have to work at staying in touch.


This Saturday will be our final showing at the Princeton Farmer’s Market at Darius Miller Park from 8:30 to 1:00. Stock up on butternut squash, which typically store in a cool basement for several months. We also have a moderate selection of peppers, root crops, cooking greens, lettuce, herbs and pumpkins.


The blueberries make another appearance at Valley Flowers in Spring Valley Monday morning beginning around 8:30. Other produce will include sweet onions, lettuce, kale, radishes, shell peas, beets, turnips, rutabaga and a small supply of red raspberries.
