Time to dig some sweet potatoes! We'll also have a few more tomatoes, potatoes, onions, ALL KINDS of squashes- summer and winter, beautiful okra, cucumbers of course!, sweet and hot peppers, pumpkins great for pie, a few flowers, basil, garlic, pickles, relish, maybe some eggplant, and whatever else is looking good! See you Saturday!

Bear Creek Farms

Wow, can it possibly be Labor Day weekend already? Part of me thinks this has been the longest, hottest summer ever, while the rest of me thinks it was just yesterday we were planting seeds in the greenhouse for this summer's vegetables. With the heat and dry back this week I'm just hoping a cool fall is right around the corner.

This week at market we'll have the last of the asparagus, FIGS (not many so if you want any come early), same for tomatoes, tons of eggplant, zucchini, and cucumbers, kale, chard, winter squash, garlic, onions, potatoes, cowpeas and more.

Hope to see you Saturday - and Happy Labor Day!
