I’ll be planting the Inchelium Red from last year’s crop (gracing my front door) and adding 4 new varieties this year!
It’s finally getting cool enough at night that my butter beans have started blooming. This variety should hold up well against the relentless 90 degree days we’ve had for so long.
Just got a Valley Oak Wheel Hoe in late August & it is awesome. Weeded between all of the newly planted row crops in less than an hour!! Why didn’t we know about this amazing tool before now??!!
First harvest… crisp & tender!!
It’s Labor Day weekend… and you know what that means!! The kids are back in school, Summer is coming to an end, and great Fall produce is just around the corner!
But wait! Lucky you!!! You don’t have to wait for Sept. 22 (the autumnal equinox) to enjoy a crisp & tender Garden Blend Salad… because we’ve just had our first harvest of the new season of a great mix of delicious, chemical-free lettuces…
Bibb, Black Seeded Simpson, Butter Crunch,
Grand Rapids Leaf, Parris Island Romaine, & Oakleaf!!!
Come see us on Saturday at Atherton Market and you’ll also find peppery baby arugula, ‘Rosa Bianca’ eggplant, okra & green peppers, Chinese cabbage (bok choy) greens, heirloom ‘Sugar Baby’ (personal sized) watermelons, and of course, our awesome sweet ‘Genovese’ basil!
We look forward to seeing you between 9:00 am & 2:00 pm!
