We’ve been working this week to clear the tomatoes and peppers out of our original hoophouse. It was hard to say goodbye but with the cooler nights, the plants have basically stopped producing fruit at this point. We more than doubled our tomato & pepper sales this year growing on less beds because the hoophouse increased the length of the growing season and also the health of the plants. Hard to believe it will be a half a year at least until the next homegrown tomatoes come around but such is the seasonality of locally grown foods. Hopefully the wait makes them all the more special and delicious when they come back next year.
Thanks to everyone who came out to the Stockholm Farmers Market last week (Annelie and Kevin posing with our produce above) – it was a beautiful day and as always a really fun time with community.
While we have run out of most hot crops, there is still a good variety of fall crops available.
