Harvests

Last week we donated 153 pounds of produce, and this week 72 pounds. And we’re celebrating because this week we crossed the 1000 pound mark! Woohoo!

Today’s Harvest

Another beautiful day out working in our Wayland field! We harvested and donated another 100 pounds of produce to our local pantry, Open Table of Maynard. We were hit by a surprise frost this week – three weeks earlier than usual. Our summer squash was hit pretty hard.

Tomatoes!!

All these tomatoes! We have three 60-foot rows – 132 plants – at least a dozen varieties. They are all from seedlings our volunteers have grown at home. Our favorite this year might be Mountain Rouge, a delicious AAS Winner. It’s a large beefsteak-type tomato, red, with very high productivity, and disease resistance. One to grow again next year.

The fancy tomato in the last two photos is a beautiful new AAS Winner called Buffalo Sun. The fruits are huge and beautifully colored with red, orange, and yellow. Another one of our favorites!

Our First Harvest!!

It was so exciting to pick our first vegetables from our Wayland field. We picked cabbage, eggplants, and basil, packed it into boxes, and then delivered it to Open Table in Maynard.

Open Table makes and delivers community meals and also has a fresh market food pantry. We are very pleased to have partnered with them and will be bringing all of our produce to them.
