Hi all! Today I went with Ben to Double-T farm to help him tie tomatoes and pick some of our produce for this afternoon. I’m currently working on a couple papers on farming, I thought it would be nice to actually get out on the farm for some inspiration. While I was there, I took a few pictures to share with ya’ll.
But, before we get to those, I did want to let you know that Ben and I will not be setting up the produce stand next week. We’re going to Massachusetts to see Ben’s family as well as to go to his cousin’s wedding. We’re super pumped about the trip, but we’re also sad to miss out on one of our Fridays. Music on the Porch is such a fabulous routine, I know it will feel strange to miss it…but we’ll be back the following weeks for sure :0).
Okay, here’s the list of produce we’ll be offering this evening at Music on the Porch:
Red Russian kale*
Eggplant (Asian and Italian)
Cubanelle peppers (sweet)
Bell peppers (sweet – multi-colored)
Anaheim Chiles (spicy)
Watermelon (sugar babies)
Sun jewel melons (Asian melons)
Okay – now, for the pictures:
ben, through the tomatoes (the one’s we tied up today)
these are black cherry tomatoes – they taste kind of like cherry versions of cherokee purples (yum!)
