MUSTARD GREENS & FRILLS…
Hello pretties =) What a week, dropped down to our coldest this last Tuesday am – 13 degrees here at the farm! Soo cold, frost, and ice! Very thankful our winter protection procedures on the hoop house worked this week and got them through!!
WINTER SQUASH –
Still have these beauties- Blue Hubbard, Long Island Cheese, and Marina de Chioggia … Smaller size: Fairy- and Spaghetti as well.
APPLES … Getting low on our inventory … Close to the end of our season. ONLY the classic Granny Smiths is what we have left!!
HERBS – Our winter herb- Rosemary w/buds & a few w/ flowers =)
GREENS – Supply on Mixed Mustard and both Green & Scarlett Frills =) (As seen in photo) They are really liking this weather! =) holding strong… We have the BGG Mixes, Chard, Red Dandelion, and Puntarelle limited on bunch amounts. Rustic Arugula- still needs some time.
SMOKIES – Chipotles Green & Red, and Satsuma Plums great minced or blended in sauces and butters. Limited supply on Smoked Damsons, Hot Baklouti Pepper, and Cayenne … Great to add in soups and chilies!
