Hello Farm Friends! The good news about the recent heat and sunshine is that the plants are LOVING it!
That’s right! The first tomato of the year, picked just this morning. Willa already called dibs for a BLT. The girl has good taste!
The tomato plants in our high tunnels look wonderful and are loaded with green tomatoes. We should have enough ripening to bring to farmers markets by late June.
The Zucchini and yellow squash plants also look beautiful. We are getting an abundance of squash, so look for that at market on Saturday mornings and Tuesday evenings. Also cucumbers are making an appearance!
Check out this gorgeous squash blossom above! It was HUGE! Just peaking out this morning to see the sunrise.
Farmers market season is in full swing! We currently attend two markets a week, and are exploring adding more.
Walnut Valley Farmers Market - Saturday mornings from 7:30-11:00 am, entrance to Island Park, May 29 - September 25
Ark City Farm and Art Market - Tuesdays from 4:00-6:30 pm, Wilson Park, June 1 - September 28.
In other news, our American Guinea Hog team is rapidly expanding! We have had three sows give birth this month for a total of 13 new piglets. American Guinea Hogs are a small heritage breed. They are smaller but much tastier than feeder hogs. We hope to have some AGH meat for sale within a year. We also sell piglets and mature females for those interesting in adding these sweet animals to their own farm.
Have a happy June! Be sure to stay safe and cool!
