I mentioned a while ago that the whole changing farms thing in the middle of the growing season would likely result in a period in the middle of the summer where I would have fewer different items to sell. Well, we’re entering that period now. Most of the things I had planted at the old location are now over, and it is too soon to harvest any of the vegetables planted at the new place. There are still some things I can harvest, and some others that I will be able to store for a while from earlier harvests.
What does all that mean for the market? It means that I will have lots of potatoes and loose beets for the foreseeable future, but some other vegetables I would normally have this time of the year, e.g., green beans, I will either not have at all or will have less of.
But I am happy to say that the young plants at the new place are growing very well. The first harvests should start coming in there quite soon! — Sydney
