Updates from Farmer Bob
We're drowning in eggplant!

"The dreaded Downy Mildew has found the basil. You will notice a black dust on the underside of the leaves. A quick rinse will remove it. We are trying a new organic product to control it on the next cutting. Cross your fingers...


"Additionally, with last week's heat the tomatoes in the field are finally starting to ripen! However, this week it is cooling off... Will they ever turn red???? Stay tuned. We're hoping to get fat, juicy tomatoes to you ASAP."

Dear Katchkie Farm CSA Members,


As some of you might have heard, this past Monday was National Watermelon Day. In honor of this joyous occasion, we thought we'd take a second to explain why Katchkie Farm, a predominately vegetable farm, chooses to grow melons each season.


The answer actually relates to something you might have heard way back in your middle school science class: despite the fact that we often treat members of the cucurbit family like summer squash and cucumbers as vegetables, they are, botanically speaking, a fruit! This means that melons like cantaloupe and watermelon fit perfectly into our existing vegetable crop rotations and organic pest management practices. Check out our cantaloupe and Riesling granita recipe below for a simple way to serve any in-season melon.

Come Visit Us at the Greenmarket!


We'll be at the Rockefeller Center Greenmarket every Friday until the end of August from 8 AM - 5 PM! You can stock up on Katchkie Farm produce, artisanal products, sandwiches, beet chips, and tea.
