I hope no one was holding their breath in between this blog post and the last. As you probably guessed, Miriam and I have been busy growing vegetables. We had a bountiful crop and an amazing first year, and words cannot express how rewarding this work is! We are so lucky to have the opportunities that we’ve found here. Two peas in a pod over at Full Circus Farm.
I am very excited to report that you can now get your Full Circus Farm soup ingredients and root veggies over at the Millerton Winter Farmers Market (now at the Methodist Church) on Saturdays from 10am to 2pm. Our first farmers market! A big shout out to the Northeast Community Center, Sheila DePaola and Betsey McCall, without whom there would be no farmers market! The first few markets had great energy, amazing vendors, and the space is perfect! The market’s new location is right across the street from Irving Farm in the center of Millerton.
FYI, here’s what’s still growing or chilling in the root cellar. Braving it in the field: Rainbow Carrots, Potatoes, Parsnips, Leeks, Sage, Thyme, Kale, Spinach, Mustard Greens, Salad Turnips, Brussels Sprouts (note spelling—from Brussels!); In the greenhouse: salad greens and herbs; And in storage for the long winter coming: Garlic, Onions, Shallots, Squash, Seed Pumpkins, Beets, Rutabaga, Popcorn and jugs of Ray and Cindi’s delicious Maple Syrup.
