I’ve got a farm stand coming up this Saturday. This means lots of harvesting, washing, packing, stacking, and pricing to do. I will be pulling beets, radishes, lettuce, cabbage, broccoli, mustard greens and perhaps a few stalks of sugarcane from the farm. The Arboretum’s orchards will offer up “Valencia” oranges, “Bacon” and “Hass” avocados, and “Meyer” lemons.
This is a photo of a farm stand in the late autumn of last year. Working our way from the foreground to the background we have: “Valencia” oranges, pomegranates, “Hachiya” and “Fuyu” persimmons, bananas, eggplants, and way in the back we have some bell peppers and pumpkins.
