It’s fall, and we’re still going to the Downtown Farmer’s Market

I believe this is the first time we’ve attended a Cedar City Farmer’s Market in the fall for about 5 years (as in our very first year).

The weather has been good to us this year. We’ve also gotten our act together a little better and planted on time, and provided appropriate protection. That means we’ve got fall vegetables today.

For the first time ever, we have super sweet pie pumpkins. These little gems are just right for making a fresh Pumpkin Pie. Stored in a cool place, you should be able to keep them (and they’ll sweeten even more) for a month or so.

Bev has found an awesome head of cauliflower… first one there could get this humongous veggie for a mere $5 bucks. I just weighed it on our bathroom scale and it came in at a whopping 6.4 lbs. I’m dreaming of cauliflower soup.

Farmer’s Market again. Raspberries, veggies, herbs, goats…

Yeah, goats! We have two bucklings and a sister doeling for sale. Reserve them today, or they’re going to auction tomorrow. At just under 6 months old, they should be very good on the grill or barbecue.

We have raspberries, red and golden this week. If you want just a pint or two, they’re $3.75 per pt. We’ll get you a half-flat (6 pts) for $19.00. For you serious food preservers, we have flats at $37.50 or can deliver multiple flats. Buy 2-5 at $34.00 each or 6 or more at $30.00 per flat.

Delivery will be to the IFA Farmer’s Market on Saturday morning at 9 AM.

The veggies and herbs have been hanging in, even though  we’ve been frosted a couple of times. Soon we should be into the winter squash and pumpkins.

Bonus time! It’s September and no sign of frost

Farmer's Market BoothMost years, we’re frosted out by late August. As I heard at our neighborhood party the other night… “If this is the result of global warming… bring it on!”.

It looks like our garden will produce for several more weeks. We’re still getting broccoli, lettuces, and cabbages. The herbs are holding up well, too.

Still to come are tomatillos, maybe a few more tomatoes, potatoes, spaghetti squash, butternut squash, sweet pie pumpkins, cauliflower and with luck… Brussels sprouts.

We have a few more lambs to sell. You can purchase either a whole ($200) or half ($100) plus butchering costs. Also, we have three young goats ready for your freezer. This year’s special on goats, $75 each.
