|We’ve enjoyed a month or so of *relative* slowness at the farm, but that ends now! I have a marathon of a dozen or so weddings to provide flowers for between now and early November, plus the Renfrow collard season began at Moe’s Original BBQ this morning! The Outstanding in the Field farm dinner is on October 5th and so we are in the midst of our final wave of farm clean-up and preparations. And we are about to flip a lot of crops in the fields and prepare the ground for over-wintered flowers and lots of cover crops.
We are ready for the temperatures to drop a bit and for some rain to come, but are thankful for the well that we are utilizing in abundance for the first time since it was drilled this past winter. We’re moving an overhead sprinkler around the fields daily.
Our farm stand will be open this Tuesday (9/26) from 10am until 2pm at 409 W Charles Street in downtown Matthews.
This week, expect to see:
Radishes, turnips, green onions, eggplant, okra, collards, henpeck mustard, tatsoi, broccoli, garlic, winter squash, peppers, honey, flower bouquets, and more – all grown at our farm. This will also most likely be our last week with tomatoes.
Wednesday & Saturday pre-ordered produce boxes will have radishes, broccoli, choice of greens bunch, green onions, sweet bell peppers, and the last tomatoes.
