Ben Builds a Contraption, and Oona Accomplishes Something

Posted 5/22/2012 6:43am by OONA COY & BEN JAMES.

Hello Town Farm Friends,AVI

I built an alien vortex inhibitor. Actually it's a one-dimensional bamboo kohlrabi. It's a rustic tribute to John Travolta in Saturday Night Fever. It's an air-billboard in a lost language, translating roughly as, "You were right all along, Denise." Actually I'm not exactly sure what it is, and anyway it doesn't work, so I'll be dismantling it soon at replacing it with a trellis for flowering vines. I took a picture so you could see it before it's gone.

While I was working on the vortex inhibitor, Oona was doing some actual farmwork, and thanks to her and the crew, here's what we'll have at market this week:

STRAWBERRIES! (quite a few, but still come early is my advice)

ASPARAGUS (come early)

CUCUMBERS

BOK CHOI (yay!)

SALAD MIX

HEAD LETTUCE (gorgeous & plentiful)

CARROTS! (first of the season – crunchy, tender, sweet – come early)

BABY BEETS & GREENS 

SPINACH

SALAD TURNIPS

BABY KALE (a winter favorite, making a brief spring appearance)

CHARD (several bunches, lots more next week)

LETTUCE MIX

RADISHES (lots & lots – this is their moment)

ARUGULA

GREEN GARLICT-shirts

And, yes, we will have SHAVED ICE this week, no matter the weather.

Also, finally, after numerous requests, we have TOWN FARM T-SHIRTS for sale in many sizes. Incredibly comfortable organic cotton shirts. Put a town on your front and a farm on your back, or buy one for your sweetie as well, and you'll have super TF powers, as shown in this pic.

Come by our stand and pick up a recipe card for Honey Miso Noodle Salad, Unmi Abkin's famous dish from the golden days of Cha Cha Cha.

That's all, except for some pictures.

We hope to see you at market!
