The Black Cat farm booth at the Boulder Farmers Market will include the following Summer produce on July 27, 2013:
- Beets and beet greens
- Collard greens
- Fresh garbanzo beans
- Jericho lettuce
- Red Swiss chard
- Spring onions
- Summer squash
Non-produce items available will consist of chicken and turkey eggs, and assorted Mulefoot pig cuts.
While the tomato season is on the verge of starting with a trickle of tomatoes, the Black Cat farm folks planted 3200 tomato plants (14 heirloom varieties, one non-heirloom variety). To date, all but 8 or 10 of them have survived. Plus, the recent hot weather has caused tremendous plant growth. Barring unforeseen circumstances, we should have a cornucopia of tomatoes available at the market in the coming months.
The harvested onions are now curing. In three weeks, Eric anticipates having 5 and 25-pound bags of onions available for sale at the market.
