2014 Week 7

This week we have a couple 2014 veggie debuts: Onions and squash blossoms!  As we turn the spring crop beds over to fall crops, a lot of us farmers have been very busy–busier than usual! But the harvest has not slowed down. This box is brimming with the goodness that late July brings.

For those of you interested in seeing a City Commons farm, Buffalo Street Farm will be one of the stops on the North route of Keep Growing Detroit’s 17th annual urban agriculture tour. The Tour kicks off  at 6pm, Aug. 6th  at Eastern Market. Register in advance to get a spot on this highly popular tour.  More info at http://detroitagriculture.net/ and more details to come in a separate farm news update.
