Our Crops Look Beautiful!

Huge spinach harvested today!
June is coming at a close and as we pass into July, everything looks gorgeous and lush! We are a little sad that our strawberry season is over, but we have so many amazing crops that are coming in.

Our spinach is huge and deep dark green this week for our CSA members! It is almost as big as our hands! Can you believe it?

And we are now into cucurbit season. We harvest summer squash, zucchini, and cucumbers three times per week and the plants are really starting to put out a lot of fruit. The patch looks big and healthy and the fruits themselves taste so good.

Cucumber, summer squash, zucchini patch.

Our next succession of brassicas is also coming in nicely. We love seeing such healthy looking broccoli plants and knowing that the crop will be productive. It's a nice treat to look forward to.

So things are going well here at Mighty Food Farm. We also began harvesting cabbage this week and our CSA members get tomatoes for the first time this week as well... very exciting. Come visit us at the farmers' markets this weekend: Bennington on Saturday from 10-1 and Dorset on Sunday from 10-2. 

New broccoli succession!

Watermelon radishes!

  1. when i eat your fruits and veggies, it makes me feel good on so many levels - the fact that your produce is grown just a few miles from where i live and for that reason are so much more nutritious when i eat them. since your produce doesn't have to travel 100s of miles, it is picked, delivered and eaten at its peak. the passion you (Lisa) and your crew put into growing food for the community shows in the bounty you display in your CSA room, farmer market stands, web sites (your photos make me hungry) and right here in your blog. Thank you all for doing what you do!
