Market Menu for June 28, 2014

With the July 4th Holiday next week we will have lots of folks stocking up for their holiday entertaining needs. Reed says the Walla Walla onions are going to be ready and we will bring the first harvest of many weeks to come. Yum, I can't wait.

Jenna picked two tubs of beautiful baby Kale this week. We have been running out towards the end of the market the last few weeks, we hope to have that remedied this week. As a fun side note, I planted a bed to Lacino (dinosaur) Kale a couple of week ago. We are going to try this as a baby cut Kale and it will be ready by next weekend. This is one of the more tender kale leaves and should be really amazing as a baby cut green.

As we pass through the longest days of the year, the garden plants are working overtime and many are doubling in size weekly. Jenna says we will have some fresh basil and mint this week. We just transplanted it to the field two weeks ago and the nearly ideal conditions of warmth, rain and long days mean we can start harvesting already.

We will have the following items at the Farmers Market for Saturday, June 21, 2014 (New items are in Bold Print)
