Sweet corn comes into season late July and keeps on growing until it freezes in the fall.
We grow several different varieties, all bi-colour, which means each cob has a mixture of white and yellow kernels. You're probably all familiar with the term peaches and cream, right? Well, a fun fact is that Peaches & Cream is trademarked name for one kind of bi-colour variety.
Squash rolls into season during late August. We grow 4 main varieties in large quantity, as well as an assortment of specialty varieties in smaller amounts. The squash continue to be available well into the late fall/early winter, as they store well during the cooler months.
Butternut squash are peanut-shaped with a smooth, beige exterior. Their skin is fairly thin, and easy to cut into. Inside, they host a bright orange coloured flesh, and have a deliciously sweet flavour!
Pepper squash, also known as acorn squash, have a dark green, ridged exterior and are shaped like a (wait for it!) over-sized acorn! This variety is also fairly easy to cut open. Once inside, you'll find a pale orange flesh, and moist, sweet flesh.
Also known as Sweet Mama, the Buttercup squash are cylindrical, with a rough, dark green exterior. Unlike the previous two varieties, this squash has a very tough, thick skin, making it more challenging to cut into. It's totally worth it, though, as buttercup offers a deliciously rich, nutty, and sweet flavour from its dark orange flesh.
Spaghetti squash has an oblong shape, and a pale yellow exterior. It's quite easy to cut open. Once cooked, its mildly flavoured flesh becomes quite stringy, and can be scooped out and used as a pasta alternative!
