Farmers' Community Market at Brookside - SATURDAYS 8am-1pm


Can you believe it? June is here, and Summer Solstice only 2 weeks away. Things are getting so exciting on our farms. Read on for more Spring Enchantment!


Happy June! Can't you just taste those tomatoes?! They're looking pretty good- we'll have enough to share... some day... but for now, the usual spring mix of veggies (maybe a few strawberries), the now famous toad abodes (if I have a spare evening to make new ones), stepping stones, and herb and flower transplants. We will hopefully find a few spare moments to make some new garden items this week- I've got some hens & chicks waiting for a project. See you Saturday! -Ami, Jim, Anna & Andrew


Bear Creek Farms

A hot sticky week here - must be summer! Jim and I spent a magical evening sitting on our deck watching thousands and thousands of fireflys flitting over the hay fields and listening to the whip-poor-wills. That surely is one of the best parts of summer!

This week at market we will have broccoli - piles and piles of broccoli, cauliflower, kale, lettuce, bok choi, spring onions, snap peas, snow peas, maybe some baby new potatoes, and whatever else we can find. There's no excuse to not eat healthy now!

See you Saturday!

New Roots for Refugees will be at market Saturday with great greens! Spinach, lettuce (if it doesn't bolt before then! we aren't the only ones hating this heat!), arugula, tatsoi, and komatsuna will be covering our tables. We'll have recipies for the ones that you don't know. We will also have some freakishly big radishes and turnips that are beautiful, sweet and juicy thanks to all that rain a few weeks ago. Look forward to seeing you on Saturday!

Hi All
This week alex will not be at market but Mary and I will be. I was
able to get my hay up in the dry while I was home Saturday. The
calves will enjoy that this winter. The dry weather has been nice. I
have replanted all the corn which did not come up because of the cold
wet period.We will have the third digging of Colorado Rose potatoes
and the last of the asparagus. There should be more beets this week
also.

From Blue Door Farm:
I hope everyone is enjoying this heatwave. I'm doing my best to, thinking of the now happy tomato and pepper plants, but I must admit my appreciation wanes around 2pm when I am in the field, thinking wistfully of air conditioning and a cold drink.
I'll be at market Saturday with broccoli (regular and bunched italian), head lettuce, cabbage (new this week!), chard, scallions and more.
I'll also have flower and herb transplants for those of you still working on your gardens.
See you soon,
Laura

Also, look for the Brookside market preview of the Ned Scott and his band, a fun, jam of American Roots Rock, blues, San Francisco and Georgia jammin', with a trace of KC Jazz, some British 60's, Southwestern country, some Nashville, Honkey Tonk and some Psychedelic 60's. Really!
And as always, don't forget to..
