Falling into Place
Autumn has arrived! It feels as though we’re at a true seasonal turning point on the farm. The mums have begun to flower, the last of the pawpaws are ripening, and we’re getting the cool season flowers in the ground. Both of our high tunnels are ready to be planted out with what will be our first flowers of 2020, and we are so excited! There were a few weeks where we were so busy harvesting all the time that we were worried we’d never make it to this point, so it’s refreshing to see everything coming together now. Now all we need is some good rain! We got a few moments of rainfall today, and while it was refreshing, it only left us wanting more.
If you haven’t already gotten your annual pawpaw fix, now is the time to do so! This will be the last week we’ll have pawpaws available, so get to market early, because we will sell out.
This week at the JFX market we will have arugula, pawpaws, ginger, head lettuce, radishes, shishito peppers, spring mix, hakurei turnips, and bouquets.
September 29, 8:30-1:00, Dupont Circle Farmers Market
