Garlic and Shallot Greens, if you haven't tried the shallot greens, you should. They have a delicious delicate flavor. The Garlic greens are wonderful in Stir Fry, Pasta or salad dressings.
Spring Wild Salad Mix- Mesclun Salad greens with Lambs Quarter, Radish, Kale, Chard and beet.
Crunchy and sweet with a light bite. Everybody's been asking for it.
Spicy Stir Fry Combo- Watermelon Radish Greens, Red Mustard and Baby Kale
Becca finished her first year of college with straight A's and showed up here on Wednesday to save me. My friend Susan also volunteered for several hours and between us all we got about 50 trays of tomatoes transplanted into pots for market and Becca and I got about 200 tomato plants and some sunflowers in the ground. You probably can't tell from this picture but this High Tunnel/Greenhouse thing my husband built is totally amazing. This is made from about 70% recycled materials which actually makes it harder to build. It's very cool to me and has really improved the quality of my tomato plants. This is a closer pic of one side. We have Potatoes, tomatoes, tomatillos, Watermelon Radishes and cucumbers planted in the beds we have in so far and if you look closely, visible in the center are the Slow Food Grant trees that we have heeled in waiting to be planted. We are still fine tuning and the set up will be finalized after the Market tomato plants are out of the picture.
It has really been pretty amazing to watch Bumblebee the Sheep guardian pup start to come into her own with the flock. She went from scared newbie who was bossed about by the sheep to sulking toddler because no one would play with her to the protector of the sheep. I don't even know if she realizes what is happening to her but it's happening. One minute she's lollygagging around like pups do and the next minute she is barking to warn the sheep of danger and they are listening to her. Then she looks kinda sheepish(if you'll pardon the pun) as if to say "I don't know why I did that".
So it has been pretty busy this week. It's raining here today which we very much need but means we will be slogging through the mud. I hope it doesn't interfere with market though. We will have a lot of yummy things to eat and to grow. Don't let the rain stop you from stocking up. We will still have Lemonade and Organic Green Tea with Jasmine and Local Honey. See you there.
God's Blessings on you and yours,
Sam and Bill
