Mind you, the carrots, cukes and peppers above-mentioned are not plentiful, but some are ready now, with many more to come in the near future.   Also keep in mind you don’t need to order items by the pound, it’s just the base price I set.  For example, you can order one or two peppers if that’s all you need.

The purple basil is doing so well I made the pesto with it this week.  How cool looking is that.  Same great taste, entirely different look.



Garlic is curing for another week.  Peas and beans are taking their time.  The tomatoes are coming along nicely colour-wise and size-wise.  I’m hoping they’ll be on your plates next week – hooray for the summer heat. 

I grow sprouts for those who have regular weekly delivery.  If you want me to grow some for you, please let me know.  It’s certainly do-able.  I don’t like to waste the seeds if the sprouts aren’t going to be delivered to someone. 
  
Day Brighteners is a non-certified organic farm, where we practice sustainability and environmentally-friendly farming.  We always use non-GMO and organic/heirloom seeds.  You are very welcome to drop by most days, but if it’s picking/packing/delivery day (Friday) you take your chances on getting the tour.  Calling or emailing first is a good idea.  We do appreciate your business very much and would like to hear from you with any comments or questions you have.  

We deliver to Kemptville and area Friday afternoons to and to Merrickville and Ottawa Saturday or Sunday.  We start picking Thursdays, so please email me or call me by Thursday afternoon for delivery to you.  If you’re outside our delivery range, we’ll make a special plan for you. 
Thank you.  

If you'd like to purchase any of the above items, I'm happy to provide them if available after our regular customers have ordered.  If you want to know how to receive delivery of our nutritional goodness, see Contact information and email or call me.  Thanks.
Until next post, have a great every day.  
Jo
