Where does the time go… only 1 week left in the box programme. It’s been a challenging but satisfying season. I’d be lying if I said I was sad to see it drawing to a close but I will miss the focus that it brings.. that and the satisfaction of growing good food and providing it to appreciative customers.
We’re looking forward to seeing y’all next Sunday for the Havest Potluck so we can thank you more directly and give thanks for a productive and tasty season!
Please call 250.629.6934 or email email@example.com to place an order.
This Saturday morning – the day of our Fall Fair – we will be hosting an Open (Green)house across the street from the Community Hall. Come see what we’ve been up to for the past 5 months!
We will also have fresh produce – including garlic! – for sale.
“Hi folks! Due to an unanticipated commitment this coming week’s boxes will be ready on Sunday July 24th (unless you hear otherwise). I hope this isn’t too much of an inconvenience. You’re welcome to pick them up at the usual time on Monday.”
It turns out the meeting was cancelled so we took the opportunity to take some time out and went and saw the new Harry Potter film in Sidney as a family!
Here’s this what’s on the menu this week. A bit more variety as the warm weather crops (slowly) come on.
Happy Summer! Now only if we could have summer temperatures… No worries, thanks to the polyhouses we are able to provide some summer crops ahead of schedule.
This week we have a number of new items: curly garlic scapes and long english cucumbers. We still have a store of new potatoes and of course, our ever-present salad greens. As the weather warms (we hope) we should be bringing you other new and delicious items.
Take care and eat well,
Pender Islands Farmers’ Market
