Our current cold crops include radish, turnip, beets, and three types of lettuce. We expect to harvest until the first hard frost, or as long as it continues to produce!
This season we planted strawberries, cantaloupe, watermelon, cucumber, okra, potatoes, sweet potatoes, yellow squash, several varieties of tomato, basil, green beans, lettuce, and rosemary. Our Summer Youth Program again assisted with the upkeep and harvest of the summer produce. What a great learning experience for them!
We are excited to have the Berryville Schools EAST Lab and Ag department on board again this fall assisting with cold crop planting and prepping for the winter.
Recipients of the 2018 harvest have been the Carroll County Senior Center and Loaves and Fishes Food Bank.
We are excited about the 2019 season, as we continue to learn and expand.
