Winter Farm Stand and Winter CSA Pick-up #2

Greenhouse grown pea shoots!
Each day I walk down the farm road, the cold winter wind speeding through the open fields, down from Powisset Peak, striking my cheeks with every step I take.  I look across the fields with squinted eyes; no more fence, no more tomatoes, row cover tucking in sleeping strawberries, straw protecting the hibernating garlic.  The broccoli stalks and mini palm trees of kale remind us that the 2012 season did happen.  The composted fields hold the hopes and plans of next season.  

I make my way to the greenhouse, my face still cold, and open the door- just a crack, to keep the heat in-  I step in and am greeted with the warmth of spring.  Pea shoots, mustards, beet greens, arugula--all growing happily in the greenhouse.  I walk slowly, breathing in the warm, humid air.  I reach my hand into a sea of pea shoots and pull out a delicate handful.  I fold the tender stems into my mouth and grin as I am transported to another season with every bite I take.   It's december!  The salad greens are growing and the farmers are happy.  

So, in the spirit of Spring in December...come to the farm this Saturday for our December market!  If you have a winter CSA share---then come for your second winter share pick up!  If you did not purchase a share, you can visit the farm stand to pick up Powisset farm produce, including greenhouse grown pea shoots! 

For sale at the farm stand will be potatoes, onions, sweet potatoes, squash, carrots, beets, kale, hot peppers, popcorn, radishes, kohlrabi, parsnips, celeriac and more!   We will also have Powisset Farm pork for sale as well as honey and jam.  There will be a pottery sale by our favorite crafters and there will be wreaths and garlic braids for sale from the Neighborhood Farm!

Come join us for a festive day at the farm and stock your fridge for the winter!
