What’s At The Market This Week- May 28, 2014

This weeks forecast is more thundershowers ! Let’s hope they hold off until after the market is over, however we do need the rain. It really makes it hard for row crop farmers coming to the market though. It takes hours to pick and package our produce and then if it’s a wash out we have to make other arrangements be it another market or load up our friends with fresh veggies.

Dad use to say “One Day At A Time Son, One Day At A Time” So If the creek don’t rise and the lightning holds off we will Be at the Montgomery Farmers Market as usual this Thursday from 3:30-6:30.

This week we will have some more of the early sugar peas, onions, swiss chard, mustard, cabbage, radishes, squash and cucumbers.

The tomatoes are just beginning to get ripe in the high tunnel but will be at least another week before they will be ready for market. I guess we will sample them in our salads this coming week.

What’s At The Market This Week- May 21, 2014

After last weeks Montgomery Farmers Market got rained out things have really taken off in the field. Blueberries are coming along nicely and they just loved the 3″ of rain that we got. Hopefully by the middle of June we will have some nice berries at the Markets !

This weeks forecast as of now is a 30% chance of thunderstorms for Thursday’s Market. That’s much better than the 100% Last week. So this week at the Montgomery Farmers Market in downtown Troy from 3:30 – 6:30 p.m. we will have- Zucchini, swiss chard, onions, radishes, mustard greens, broccoli, cucumbers.

Our yellow squash looks to be another week out and we are holding our breath for the first ripe tomato. It’s all up to mother nature now but they are really drinking the water, almost a gallon a day per plant. That’s what it takes though to make juicy maters.

Long rows of potatoes, green-beans & peas loving the last rain.

As always we appreciate your support. Stop by Thursday and see all the local vendors at the market in Troy.

May 15th- Market Cancelled for Us

100% chance of rain & storms today……and It takes us hours to pick and wash veggies. So today we will be thankful for the rain and NOT be at the market. Hopefully next weeks weather will be better. Hope to see you then.

What’s At The Market This Week- May 14, 2014

Well as a friend just said, 4 weather web-sites, 2 TV stations are all calling for Rain and Storms for Thursday’s Market in Troy. I remember not long ago they were calling for 3″ of rain too and we did not get a drop, so we shall see. Continue to check for weather updates in case the market is cancelled though.

This week will be a continuation of lettuce, swiss chard, cucumbers, spring onions, a little more broccoli, mustard greens and radishes. It’s transition time and I can see a little color in the tomatoes so maybe it won’t be long now.

What’s At The Market This Week- May 7, 2014

Dry * Dry * Dry* …….is the word of the week. Last week we were suppose to get 3″ of rain and we did not get a drop. We have pulled our storage tanks (rain water collection) dry and now pumping out of the pond for our irrigation water. Last year we did not have to irrigate very much at all. Everything is still looking good though.

The Montgomery Farmers Market has been great this year. Thanks to all the customers that have supported us this year !  Hopefully it won’t be long before the field crops start producing. The high tunnel tomatoes still look good also.

This week at the Market we will have- Zucchini, swiss chard, lettuce, spring onions, spinach, radishes, mustard greens and maybe a few cucumbers. The lettuce will be from a new bed which really looks good. So stop by and see all the vendors and get your Mother’s Day  produce.

HAPPY MOTHER’S DAY to all the Mom’s.
