Wood-Fired Pizza Night This Friday!

May 16th, 2024

You still have time to secure your tickets for our Wood-Fired Pizza Night! This culinary event takes place this Friday (May 17th) at 6pm on our event lawn and will feature a lineup of farm-inspired pizzas that you don’t want to miss. We’re especially excited about our two white pies that will prominently feature produce grown on the farm: a zucchini and poblano pie and a colorful leek, banana pepper, and cherry tomato pie. We’re keeping a close eye on the weather and are ready to provide extra tents as needed in the event that it rains. This is a ticketed event that is open to the public but spots are limited. Tickets will be on sale until 11:59pm this evening (May 16th) so we highly encourage you to secure your spot! If you’re a Harvest Green resident, make sure to reach out to us or the folks over at The Farmhouse for a special discount. Tickets can be purchased here

Eggplant is in season on the farm and we’re harvesting quite the abundance! We have 5 different varieties for you that can be seen in the photo above (from left to right): Black Beauty, Gaudi, Annina, Ping Tung, and Turkish Delight. The first three eggplants are Italian varieties while the two on the right are both Asian varieties. Asian eggplants typically have a thinner skin and the flesh is slightly sweeter in taste. They’re perfect for grilling and stir-frying. Italian varieties tend to have a thicker skin and are great for roasting and making Italian classics like caponata and eggplant parmesan. You can find all of these varieties at the Farm Stand. 

Remember the lower and lean method that we mentioned we would be using with our tunnel tomatoes? It’s in full effect since some of our tomato plants are already 11 feet tall! In order to allow enough space for our tunnel tomatoes to keep growing, we have each plant attached to a spool of twine suspended from a trellis wire. As each plant reaches the top of the tunnel, we let out slack on the spool so that we can slide it down the main trellis wire. This angles our plants, giving them more room for growth. In order for the lower and lean method to work, we have to keep the bottom portion of our plants aggressively pruned, which you can see in the photo below.
