A Surprise at the Farmers Market

Leave a comment

Visitors to our Farmers Market on Friday were greeted with this great display of… pumpkins! Yes, it is only August, but pumpkins are starting to ripen! They are following right along with the strawberries and blueberries by being a few weeks early.

Speaking of blueberries, Friday was our last day of blueberry retail. It was a great season, and I really enjoyed this aspect of the farm. I have blueberries tucked away in the freezer for future baking and smoothies!

Next Friday will be our last Farmers Market of the season, with the theme of “Celebrating the Harvest.”  And we should once again have pumpkins! Autumn is right around the corner!
