Summertime

Well, it is definitely summertime here on the farm. Everything seems to be growing ahead of schedule although the earlier rains did cut back on some of the planting time. The garlic is out of the ground and drying in the barns and should be ready in a few weeks after our annual “garlic cleaning” party, that is! The spring lettuce is done and the second planting is not quite ready. I’m salivating right now thinking about the eggplant and zucchini that will be ready soon as well as bushels of cherry tomatoes. Right now we are a bit between crops but we still have beets, basil, tomatoes, some beans, Yukon Gold and French Fingerling potatoes good to go.
Markets are on Saturdays from 9-noon at Howe Meadow in the Cuyahoga Valley National Park, a beautiful venue. Countryside Farmers Market Countryside Farmers Market has 40 to 50 vendors selling lamb, bison, flowers, veggies, soups, bread, soaps, chickens, eggs, beef, cheeses, etc. Oh and don’t forget the croissants! This is a producers market, meaning everything that is sold must be grown or made by the person selling it. Talk about LOCAL!
