Our farmstand hours: Open 9-4 Saturday and Sunday. We are now closed all weekdays.  Call the farm phone with any questions at 603-868-2001

Today we have red and green tomatoes,  tomatillas or salsa tomatoes, green leaf lettuce,  red and gold regular type potatoes,  gold fingerling potatoes, kale, a few Delicata winter squash, a small selection of winter squashes.  We have been picking our birdhouse and speckled swan gourds and have them curing out in front of the shop. If properly handled and cured these gourds last for years and may be used for a variety of crafts. They can be painted vibrant fall colors or carved with intricate designs. Our day neutral strawberries have finally slowed down to the point where we will no longer offer them at the farmstand.  We plan on adding more for next year's season because they produced great tasting berries.

Pick Your Own Red tomatoes  have ended. We have PYO green tomatoes for $1/lb still. There is one row still healthy enough for picking. All the rest have been frosted off. These green tomatoes are from a field we planted later in the summer. It will also provide us with enough red tomatoes  for the farmstand. Next weekend will most likely be the last time we have red tomatoes at the farmstand, if they hold up.

The CYO garden is finished for this season. I cut if off the other day and have 2 buckets of Zinnias left. We also harvested all the Globe Amaranth or Gomphrena in 4 different colors and are selling these for $4/bunch. The colors are a brilliant carmine, purple, white and light pink. These everlastings hold their color when dried.

We have lots of handmade all vegetable based soaps in our soap closet. I have been cutting some of my soap into $2 bars. These bars make great holiday gifts, especially when you mix a pretty assortment together in a box of cellophane bag and add a bow.

It was the last day of Pick Your Own Red tomatoes from the front field this past Sunday. We still have the 2nd field of tomatoes that is very healthy and loaded with green tomatoes  for you to continue picking from. It will also provide us with enough red tomatoes  for the farmstand perhaps into early November.    The tomatillas or salsa tomatoes are not ready yet.

Today we have already picked strawberries, red and green tomatoes, green leaf lettuce,  red and gold regular type potatoes, red and gold fingerling potatoes, kale, swiss chard, Delicata winter squash, a small selection of winter squashes, Summer squash and Zucchini.  We have about 10% of our pumpkin crop this year. The 5 weeks of rain really took a toll on our crop as the field sat wet and cold. Our soil is a heavier soil than some areas and does not drain quickly.   The strawberries have slowed down, however there are half ripe berries out there and we hope to continue picking them.  We have been picking our birdhouse and speckled swan gourds and have them curing out in front of the shop.

We have 4" pots of zinnias, calendula and gomphrena for sale. They provide a vibrant splash of color as summer ends and fall begins. They are great for cutting and will produce more stems the more you cut them, especially the zinnias and gomphrena. I dry all three of these flowers also.

The PYO fall raspberries have ended. They deteriorated rather quickly due to the heavy rains last weekend.  Often times we pick the fall raspberries into late October, however not this year. We do not have a lot of fall raspberries this year. Several of our better rows died out the last 2 years.

Late September and early October are perfect for canning. Today I have opened the windows and started chopping celery, onions, carrots, garlic, tomatoes, summer squash, zucchini and fresh basil. I fill my canner pot with H2O and place the quart jars into the water for sterilizing and while it is heating up I chop and put the veggies into big bowls. Once the jars have boiled for 10 -15 minutes and the lids and caps have simmered in their own pot of water, I begin by stuffing tomatoes into the hot quart jars filling them halfway. Usually I have cut fresh tomatoes in half only, unless they are really large. I use roma type tomatoes if there is enough in the tomato patch, however I have used any type of tomato I can find and it comes out great. The other half of the jars I fill with the various chopped items and top it off with fresh basil. I add a tablespoon of vinegar and top off with hot water. I water bath the jars for a full 15 minutes.

This is how I use the vegetable soup: I cook a chuck steak or chicken beast or a combination of chicken and turkey Keilbasa in olive oil and garlic. Once the meat is done ,I take it out of the pan and put it aside. Immediately I pour into the same pot  1 whole quart of my soup and then grind up a 2nd quart in the blender before adding it. The grinding up of one of the soups makes for a thicke, heartier and tastier stew or soup. I cut up the aforementioned meat and add to the pot. A can of beans, kidney or white beans, goes well also. Cooked pasta could be added in place of the beans. Experiment with your own recipe, however always check the appropriate water bath timing. I use a Ball Canning cookbook that has many great recipes from soup to jam to relilshes.
