Harvesting for Farmers’ Market

POD #1 – Garden Bounty.img_7983

During this POD, we  harvest vegetables  from our garden on Wednesdays and sell them at farmers’ market on Thursdays.  Right now we have an endless supply of sweet Sun Gold cherry tomatoes and three kinds of beans – Kentucky Wonder pole beans, Provider green beans, and Butterwax yellow beans.   We also have Vermont Cranberry beans and Calypso beans ready to dry for future use.

The Costata Romanesca zucchini are growing without stop, interspersed with corn and pole beans in a “three sisters” plot.  We have plenty of these huge, meaty, ribbed squash.
