While NOAA is pushing the unusual December warm spell off until this weekend, today looks like it will be almost as warm along with possibly some sun. Tomorrow, right now it looks beautiful with sunshine likely. Keep in mind next week’s weather will be closer to normal which means temperatures mostly in the 30s will be likely. Keep in mind that while the weather for the foreseeable future will be OK for us opening our stand, we are running low on apples, squash and potatoes so we will have to close soon even if the weather continues unusually mild for the rest of December..
What we will be having today:
Lots of different APPLES! Honeycrisp, Fuji, Jonagold, Northern Spy, Idared, Granny Smith, Roman Beauty, Blushing Golden, Splendor, Calville Blanc, Surprise, Red Gold, Northwest Greening, Red Delicious, Golden Delicious, Crispin/Mutsu, Empire, Jonathan, Hawaii, Kandil Sinap, and King David.
REMEMBER you can mix and match any apples for only $4 a 2-qt box or $10 a 1/2 bushel!
AND OUR HONEYCRISP are so delicious right now! (We have one every day, they are so good!) Honeycrisp are $5 a 2-qt box, larger quantities while supplies last.
WE ALSO HAVE WINTER SQUASH: Buttercup (sweet and rich and can be substituted for pumpkin puree for your pumpkin pies!), Heart of Gold (a sweet dumpling hybrid), and Celebration (an acorn hybrid that is much sweeter than your normal green acorn). KEEP IN MIND that winter squash only get sweeter the longer they sit around. Their starches continue to turn to sugar and is one of the reasons why some squash can be stored well into the winter months. They are only 50 cents each/ 5 for $2 right now or if you are looking for larger quantities they are $7 a half bushel.
Popcorn: By Christmas our popcorn on the ear should be ready to pop! See this link HERE for an interesting article on Michigan popcorn.
FRESHLY DUG POTATOES: Red Norland potatoes (red skin with white flesh): We have them in quarts, quarter pecks, 1/2 pecks, and 1/2 bushels. The 1/2 bushels are only $10 each or $18 a bushel. Kennecbec (white skin, white flesh) are $6 a peck backet. Yukon Gold (yellow skin, gold flesh) are $6 a 1/2 peck.
Fresh stiff-neck garlic
