Martin's Farmstand:  Basil, Beets and Beans in Abundance

Dear Customer:
Below is an updated ‘in season now’ list from Martins Farmstand. The steady warm weather and moisure aid the gardens. Even the weeds are growing so well that we are very busy weeding and picking. We have lots of canning beans today. The sweet onions are big enough to harvest with the onion field in general looking like a good crop. A very nice garlic crop is all harvested and curing. Basil, beets, beans, cucumbers, sunflowers, lettuce and so much more… God gives us good things to eat. The wild blackberry crop is ripening but it looks like they are few and small in the areas I am familiar with so not so good for them. Daniel
