This Saturday we will bring our first blueberries of the season to Princeton Farmers’ Market. We also still will have strawberries. Blueberry and strawberry supply may be limited, so you would have a better chance of getting what you’d like if you come near opening time at 8:30. We also plan to bring lettuce, radishes, cilantro, dill, rhubarb, wheat, garlic scapes and green garlic, sunchokes, sugar snap peas, arugula, and turnips. We have basil, tomato, and strawberry plants. And of course, lots of Plow Creek Bakery goodies.


This Saturday at Princeton Farmers’ Market, we expect to have rhubarb, spinach, wheat, salad mix, Jerusalem artichokes, mint, and our Plow Creek Bakery goods. Sorry, no strawberries yet. We’ve seen a few red ones, but I don’t think we could find a pint yet. Maybe limited quantities next Saturday…. We will have tomato and strawberry plants for sale for your garden.


Happy Vernal Equinox to all. Spring just started at 6:21 A.M. But we’ve been listening to the spring peepers since Saturday a week ago. We finished pruning the blueberries on Monday. I think it will be a good blueberry year. We are now working on pruning the blackberries. They had a lot of disease last year, so I have doubts of how well they will do. Then we go on to pruning raspberries. We will take a break from pruning and divide the rhubarb. Tomato and pepper plants are looking healthy in the greenhouse. It’s also about time to take the mulch off the strawberries. We keep busy!


Saturday will be the last 2010 Farmers’ Market in Princeton. We still have a good variety of produce. We have lots of acorn and butternut squash (you can also order them.) We have lettuce, radishes (red and daikon), kale, hot and sweet peppers, snow peas, turnips, cucumbers, dill, cilantro, bok choy, ground cherries, and chestnuts. We still have a few tomatoes, but most are green or only partly ripe — no big red perfect ones any more. We will bring garlic - this is the right time to plant if you want to grow your own. I will bring some wheat, which you can use as a cooked grain or grind for fresh whole wheat flour. We have a few sets of Tutuk’s note cards, painted with the juice of our berries. And we plan to have a good selection of Plow Creek Bakery products. A beautiful day is forecast. See you there! — Jim
