The record-breaking rainfall these past few weeks brought a number of challenges to the Fresh Start Farmers. Waterlogged soil cuts off the air supply to roots, mud encourages crops to rot, and planting is put on hold in muddy fields. But yet, the farmers persevere and continue to grow and harvest hundreds of pounds of beautiful vegetables to bring to you each week. Zucchini and summer squash are here and loving the water and we are seeing the first small harvests of green peppers and beans!
Last week we brought in some exciting new mushroom products from Dunk’s Mushrooms and we quickly sold out, so we’ve got some more this week! Made right in Brentwood, with all local ingredients, Dunk’s Gourmet Mushroom Pot Pies, Vegan Mushroom Pulled “Pork”, and Vegan Mushroom Patties make for a delicious and easy meal!
Also, back by popular demand is Mile Smith Farm’s marinated steak tips! Limited quantities so order early.
