'Summer Picnics; A Nantucket Tradition'

Farm Grown Update-Corn is In!
 
 
 
 
We just can't get enough of these beautiful field shots that Keegan Bartlett has been providing for the Farm Dirt. Pictured above, is a crop of corn which has reached "Tassel Stage". Tassel stage begins when the last branch of the tassel is visible, but silks have not yet emerged Tassels normally appear 2-3 days before silk emergence. The tassels produce the pollen that pollinate the ears so they can form the kernels. Pollen shed typically occurs in the morning or evening.
 
 
 
 
“Silking stage” begins when the silk is visible outside the husk . Pollen falls onto the silks to potentially fertilize the ovules. Each ovule can produce an individual kernel. If corn doesn't tassel, it can't produce any edible ears, whether the corn is sweet or flint.

 Say 'Thanks!' with Gift Baskets
 
 
 
 
Gift baskets are a great way to thank you to your friends for that recent trip to Nantucket.  Perhaps your child is spending the week with their buddy on the beach and wants to show their gratitude to the family.  Maybe you just miss your loved ones and want them to know you’re thinking of them.  Whatever the reason, we have gift baskets for all occasions.  Check out our webstore for easy ordering of our favorite baskets.
 
 
 
 
If you are looking for something a little more personal, like this one, pictured above, that was put together for an artisan cheese lover with a new puppy named Bartlett, contact Kate and she can help you put together the perfect custom basket to suit your needs
 
 
 
 
Market Musings with MJ
 
 
 
 
"I do love me a countdown. Sometimes it feels as though I’m wishing the time away and I guess that at times, I am. At the beginning of the season, I count down the days 'til Labor Day (41.) I count down the days 'til corn (Yay! Done with that one!), and I count down the days 'til grand kids, friends or families arrive. 
My current countdown is for Carlson Peaches. Be on the lookout and stay tuned to
social media for updates!
One of the many perks of my job is getting to call around and chat with vendors and farmers about availability, harvest dates and the like.

A conversation with Frank Carlson from Carlson Orchards in Harvard, Mass is hands down, my favorite. He has a good, strong New England accent, he’s always informative and always entertaining.
If you haven’t had the pleasure of enjoying Carlson Orchard peaches or nectarines, you’re in for a treat. Juicy, sweet, drippy, heavenly goodness. As good a peach that there ever was! The season goes fast, and the peaches ripen quickly; much like the essence of summer, savor them them before they are gone! Imagine sitting on the beach, just out of the water, your hands a bit salty from the ocean...the most amazing peach you’ve ever had, with a hint of salt from your fingers.
 
 
 
 
If you managed to not devour every one whole, slice a few in half, brush with oil and leave, just a moment, on the grill. Serve them up with a scoop of ice cream, or enjoy with a glass of something bright and delicious. Our wine crew can help you find your new favorite. 
There are still a few secret spots for blueberries on island. A handful of the tiny, wild blues, plus a Carlson peach? That’s when you just want time to stand still.
Any minute now..."

Updates on Reusable Bags
and Store Capacity
 
 
 
 
The state has recently lifted the ban on reusable grocery bags so we will once again be allowing customers to use their own bags.  They have also rescinded the order to limit occupancy in grocery stores to 40% of capacity.  The Bartlett family has decided  to maintain occupancy limits in our store to 50% capacity in an effort to allow for adequate social distancing.  We feel this is the best strategy for our employees and customers.  We will increase capacity when we feel it is safe and appears appropriate.  

We will continue to have the register outside under the tent for breakfast and lunch sandwich orders to help alleviate some of the wait time at the deli counter, as it seems to be working.

We are continuing to offer the 7 am – 8 am hour for over 60 shoppers only and curbside is still an option as well.
We thank you for your continued support and patience as we work through this unprecedented time in our history together.

-The Bartlett Family
