Vegetable of the Week: Green Tomatoes

I have learned that green tomato lovers are hard-core. Last year, we'd hear folks, stopped at red lights, yelling from their car at us - and they most often wanted to know if we were selling green tomatoes. Others would buy 20 lbs worth, because apparently it's not always easy to find green tomatoes around town. A couple of weeks ago, I received a call on my cell from a shopper I didn't recognize by name, double-checking that we'd have them at the market that afternoon.

News From The Field

Usually, my news from the field consist mostly of my musings about farming and what's happening on our farm sites in Roxbury and Dorchester. This week, Globe and WBZ TV reporters were sharing their news stories from the field.

Summer Youth Program underway!

Editor's note: North Shore Fellow Mike Syversen sends the following update on how things stand at the beginning of our Summer Youth Program

Hi everyone,
This is an exciting week for us up here on the North Shore. Our summer youth program started this Wednesday. Thirty youth ages 14-17 are starting their work here where they will be farming, participating in farmer’s markets, learning about the food system, social justice, and community development, gaining work experience, and much more. The crew leaders, assistant crew leaders, and staff who lead the youth have created a program that is bound to have an impact on the lives of the youth. We’re excited for the joys and challenges that the youth will bring. We know they will have a great experience!

This Monday was our third Lynn CSA pickup day, and everything on that front is running smoothly. It is great to see the members each week and know the food we provide them with has been harvested from our farm that same day. Getting to chat with the members about the produce and what they do with it is a highlight of the week.

News From The Field

Last week, eight teenagers started their summer youth internship in our Dorchester Office. These young people have all participated in our Summer Youth Program and have been hired to take on more responsibility. They will build raised bed gardens in backyards, staff the farmers markets, lead neighborhood tours, and welcome visitors to our Urban Learning Farm. I invite you to say hi at the market.

Summer Squash!

available at our Dudley Market and for at least some CSA members

Summer squash differs from fall and winter squash in that it is harvested before the rind hardens and the fruit matures. It is one of the most prolific crops we grow, with one plant able to produce dozens pounds of squash throughout the summer. Here at the farm we grow three different varieties of summer squash; a green zucchini, a yellow squash commonly called crook neck, and a UFO shaped squash called patty pan. The patty pan squash is probably the newest to you, but you can use it just like you would zucchini. It is my favorite summer squash. As its name suggests, summer squash is a true announcer of summer, and is one of the steady crops that usually accompanies us until the fall.

News from the Lincoln Fields

The farm has seen many changes this season. You’ve now met Emily, Alex and Tim, the new farmers on our team. We’ve also added quite a few tools to our equipment fleet. Thanks to a generous grant from a family foundation, we’ve added a new tractor and a number of exciting implements. Our new tractor allows us to move heavier loads of compost, which means that we are able to add more compost to more fields. Next, meet our spader, the strongest, hardiest of our tools. Having a spader has dramatically changed how we prepare our fields for planting. In the past we used a disc harrow, which breaks up the soil to ready a field for planting. The downside of this method is that all the soil structure and organisms we work so hard to promote and preserve get broken down when we disc the fields. With our new method, chunks of soil get turned under, without disturbing the soil as much. We have already seen a dramatic decrease in our need for irrigation, a direct result of not breaking up our soil.
