Pennington's This Week

As of TUESDAY,  JULY 17th...

In the Distribution Center, there may be chard, TOMATOES, GERMAN WHITE GARLIC, CUCUMBERS & summer squash.  cABBAGe, Scallions, basil, purple salad onions & kale may be in one choice grouP.

We are in our usual transition between the harvest of the last of our spring crops, while our summer crops are just beginning to be harvested.  Farmer Jim expects this period to be a little leaner than usual, since we had the 13th wettest May on record, preventing us from transplanting or direct seeding many crops. Even spring crops have been delayed, for example, cabbage is being harvested later than usual. We may have lost about half of our spring broccoli crop because the weather interfered with the growth and leached out nutrients at critical growth stages.  What this means is that most summer crops will be delayed, but we expect favorites like garlic to be in the Distribution Center soon!

We are offering our own sweet corn as an "add on" crop for sale in our Distribution Center today.  "Add on" crops are crops, like sweet corn and tree fruit, that are too costly to include in our regular distribution program.  We offer these crops to members who are willing to pay the extra cost associated with producing these crops, which are difficult to grow organically. Our 100% certified organic, non-GMO, yellow sweet corn will be for sale at our Pennington Distribution Center for $1.25/ear today. We accept cash or check for payment.  We may also have corn during the week (you can buy corn any day of the week when we have it, not just on your pick-up day).  Please check this page to find out if we will have corn the day you wish to purchase it. 

We also have our own certified organic peaches for sale for $3.99/lb.
