Good Food News

What’s Available at Wednesday Market?

Sorry for the late list…..Jenny got dehydrated yesterday and we spend the evening in the ER getting fluids back  into her. She was drinking lots of water but no electrolytes so we’ll be adding lemon to our water on these hot days from now on. And being sure to keep up our intake of leafy greens, which are apparently another good natural source of electrolytes. We eat greens with every lunch at least, and she happened to hurry through lunch yesterday and skipped our big salad. In Summary……take care of yourselves out in this heat!!

Anyway, here’s what’s on the table this week:

Carrots, Beets,  Microgreens, MicroCilantro, Green Garlic, Green Onions, Watermelon Radishes, Rainbow Chard, Kale, Collards, Sweet Asian Turnips, Pak Choi, Tat Soi, Dill, Parsley, Fennel, last of the Strawberries! Sweet Potatoes, Carrots, Lettuce, Napa Cabbage, Kohlrabi, Cucumbers, Arugula and first of the sungold tomatoes!!

Still some transplants left from the plant sales: mostly flowers and basil and oregano.

Yogurt & Granola from Pecan Point Farm, Meat and Eggs from Turntime Farm, Local Honey out of stock until our local beekeepers extract, should be soon! Ginger & Turmeric Golden Paste, Farm-Made Chocolate with farm grown flavors like strawberry, ginger, and rosemary mint.. New Product: Goddess Ghee, clarified butter made from grass-fed cow’s milk.

Sue’s B’s Granola Bars, Sourdough bread from Amazing Grace and Whole Wheat Sourdough from Wheat the People. Other baked goodies like scones and muffins from Emerald Acres Farm.

We’ve already installed our summer lettuce shade tunnel. 30% shade cloth, PVC bows over rebar, landscape fabric to prevent weeds, and sprinklers for a midday cool down. Beautiful Elderberry is the tall bush blooming in the background. These blooms will produce berries this summer, which we’ll pick to make the anti-viral tincture. Elderberry Tincture available again this fall!

We thought the sweet onions were lost in the weeds but we ended up with a good crop!
