Weekly PYO List

Perennial Herbs: Chives, Lovage, Oregano, Thyme, Garlic Chives, Spearmint, Peppermint, Sage

Annual Herbs: Parsley, Dill and Cilantro are now below the rows of short caterpiller tunnels south of the barn - a little closer than the last patch but still not very close (sorry).  Other annuals were mostly done in by frost.

Flowers: There may be a few varieties that held up better to the frost but many are finished.

Green Beans - All done, frosted.

Edamame - Still okay - new patch in front of the flower patch.  Pods must be a bit fat.

Hot peppers - There are some out there - just beyond the flowers - most of the ones that are big enough are in the middle of the patch.  These were covered during the frost so still okay

Tomatillos - Just a few near the bottoms

Cherry Tomatoes - A few near the bottoms

 

 

 

 

Pick-Your-Own (PYO) Crops

When they are in, Pick Your Own Crops are available to pick any day of the week during daylight hours.  Check the box to the right to see what is available. When you come to the farm, you can go in the the barn and look to your right where you can check the picking locations and limits on the chalkboard and grab a container or clippers. 

Each year we will offer an abundance of Pick-Your-Own (PYO) crops at the farm. These are crops that you pick yourself.  Most produce will be picked and washed for you to choose from here at the farm. However, we offer Pick- Your-Own crops to give farm members the opportunity to get out there in the field and have some fun picking!  

Whether you pick up your share here at the farm in Madison, or have a delivered box share, we encourage all farm members to come and enjoy the benefits of the farm. Come out with the kids, have a picnic or go for a stroll out in the fields and get some ingredients for dinner.

PYO crops will vary with the season.  Here are a few of the PYO crops you can enjoy:

  • Sugar snap peas
  • Green beans
  • Cherry tomatoes
  • Tomatillos
  • Flowers-an array of fragrant and colorful varieties
