White Barn Farm is BLOOMING. Big Time! Treat yourself or someone you've been thinking of. These are locally grown, never sprayed with anything, super-fresh flowers. Gentlemen, you do not have to bring home flowers only if you are in trouble! You can just bring some home for everyone to enjoy! Bouquets are only $11.30 plus $.70 tax for a total of 12 bucks. Not bad!

We have Lilies for $2/stem and the first picking of Sunflowers for 75 cents/stem! Plus Laurene Hulbig is putting together fabulous bouquets with all of the flowers we've cut in the past two mornings. Amazing! Come see for yourself! Laurene is a floral designer specializing in wedding design, normally. We are so lucky to have her arranging our farm flowers!! Her website is www.laurenehulbig.com if you want to connect with her about wedding flowers for an upcoming event. She can certainly feature some (or all) White Barn blooms, in season. Just ask!

Just a reminder, Jordan Brothers Seafood is at the farm Tuesdays 2pm to 6pm! If you need a fast, easy supper, pick up something from the seafood truck. The scallops are phenomenal. Rinse them, pat dry thoroughly with a paper towel, season with salt and pepper or more if you're feeling fancy, and sear on both sides in a blend of butter and a high heat oil like organic canola, safflower, or sunflower. Take them off the heat when they still yield a little bit when pressed. Serve immediately (so don't cook them until everyone is ready to eat - almost sitting at the table). Boil some White Barn potatoes, sautee some zucchini and basil in olive oil and Voila! Dinner.

The Edible Plant Walk scheduled for this evening (Tuesday 7/23) with John Root has been postponed due to uncertain weather. Stay tuned for the new date. The free, open to the public, Wrentham Cultural Council sponsored walk was quite popular last year. These are Wild Edible plants, by the way. Of course they are on the edges of the farm and among all of our cultivated edible plants!

Keep your eye out for our beautiful new  "OPEN" flag. It is truly a beautiful piece of folk art, quilted by none other than Heather Willey, who usually designs our Plant Sale poster each year and who made the signs on the front of the market shed with the help of her woodworking husband, Tim. Thanks Heather!!!

For those of you who haven't seen yet, our early tomatoes are rolling in. We have been picking all the ripe and all the ones turning color to get them out of the field before they are damaged by the bunnies, chipmunks, crows; cracked by too much water, or damaged by rot. So if it looks a little more orange than red, let it ripen on the counter for a few days. I like to sit them on their shoulders so the weight of the tomato doesn't crush the bottom, which is more useable anyway. The exception is if the tomato is supposed to be orange when it is ripe, like the delicious variety, Orange Blossom. If you aren't sure, just ask the person at the farmstand.

Thanks as always. Do not miss us this week! Hope you like the flowers!
