Berries & Veggies are here!

Almost mid-July and the bounty is here! Today, July 12th was the first day of PYO raspberries - check the PYO shed for what is open for picking and where. Blueberries will be open this week-end - still early, but we are hoping to keep them well picked to aid in the control of the new invasive insect Spotted Winged Drosophila. (See below for more info.)

This past week we had lots of greens, the first carrots and beets of the season, garlic scapes and scallions, gorgeous red tomatoes and baskets of cherry tomatoes, peas both snap and shell, broccoli and raspberries. Also Lauren's delicious cookies on Wednesdays and Fridays, local author Suzie Crowther's new book The No Recipe Cookbook, three kinds of granola from Back Roads Granola of Halifax including gluten free, Bonavue Farms chicken and beef, Lauren's herbal concoctions of creams, soaps, lip balms and more, jams and preserves and Robin and Ty's famous Sunday sermon alternative of coffee and scones.
