Swiss Chard, Radishes, Watermelon, Rutabaga … Gone for the Year

Instead of the usual spread of produce on their Prospect Park farmers market table, Evolutionary Organics, based in New Paltz, had these sad hand-drawn signs. Kira Kinney, who runs Evolutionary Organics, also handed out a flyer explaining her situation to her customers. Nineteen of her twenty-two acres are under water and much of her fall crop is lost.

Evolutionary Organics is particularly well-known for their delicious heirloom tomatoes. (I bought some on Saturday, and yep, they were delicious.) If you see Kira’s stand at the Union Square or Prospect Park farmers’ markets, pick up a batch. Click here for a great example of how to use them.
