Summer market starts Saturday, May 8th!
We're looking forward to participating in the Cambridge Farmers Market again this summer! The first market is Saturday, May 8th, from 9:00 am to 1:00 pm, located in the City Center Market parking lot.
More vendors are expected this season, which means more variety to select from and more people to meet :)
We got off to a little later start this year in the greenhouse, so our lettuce won't be ready for a couple of more weeks. We will have microgreens for the first market, though. Our usual lineup of sunflower seed, radish, kale, broccoli and a salad mix of radish/broccoli/kale.
Here are a few pictures of what we have going on in the greenhouse. Our variety of lettuce is grown in the deep water rafts, the cucumbers, tomatoes and green peppers are grown in the dripper system (Dutch bucket system), and we're experimenting with broccoli, cauliflower, green beans and brussels sprouts in planters utilizing a flood and drain growing method.
While supplies last, we will be featuring bird feeders and bird houses that my dad made this winter. This was a project that helped him get through the long, boring, confining, COVID months. Here are a few pictures of each of the six styles available. Below is more information. Great detail and craftsmanship went into making these, and they last for years. I can vouch for each style. The birds love them :) and they make great Mother's Day and Fathers Day gifts!
Blue Bird House - 7-1/2" x 5-5/8" x 15" high
Wren House - 10" x 8-5/8" x 8-1/2" high

Hope everyone had a great weekend and was able to get outside to enjoy the beautiful day yesterday. We look forward to seeing you Saturday or in the coming weeks!
