Carrots and Cauliflower!

It is a real pleasure to be harvesting the carrots we planted back in April.  Despite the rain, the voles who like to munch carrots at every chance, and the insidious weeds in the back garden, we had a fabulous first carrot harvest.  Yay!

Cauliflower is one of the few veggies we’ve never grown before on the farm.  It is hard to grow it so that it looks beautiful, and we were always hesitant to try.  But this year we decided to give it a shot and it turned out great.  We’re happy to be able to share with all of our members. 

We’re really excited that the new Rising Tide location opened this week in Damariscotta.  Rising Tide is a huge supporter of local agriculture, and since we are one of the Tide’s largest vegetable suppliers, it plays a crucial role in our farm budget.  So check out the new location if you get a chance.  It’s beautiful and   we hope encourages a lot of new folks to become members and shop locally. 

Make sure to let us know this week if you want blueberries.  If you already signed up for berries, make sure to send your checks, made out to Red House Farm, along to me at the above address.

Have a great week and eat well!
