Several crops have survived the devastation of hurricane Irene. We currently have a wonderful selection of winter squashes as well as hard to find Goguma-Korean sweet potatoes with the flavor and texture that resemble chestnuts. Of course leafy greens are abundant (mustard greens, baby bok choy, mizuna, lettuces…) and we still have a large variety of beans and heirloom tomatoes.
After countless number of rainy days in August that already made the ground wet and susceptible to diseases, our farm was hit by one of the most devastating hurricane which swept away and destroyed more than half of our crops.
The long awaited heirloom tomato season is finally underway…
But that’s not all! We also have a myriad of peppers like pimientos de padrón (the famous Spanish peppers that are also called the “Russian roulette” peppers), shishito, fushimi and many colors of sweet bell peppers.
