Petersen's Market Menu for Saturday, September 12, 2015

Starting new beds of all the greens this week: wild arugula, regular arugula, baby spinach, lettuce, baby beet greens, cress, baby kale, red russian kale, cilantro. All are at the perfect baby baby size. Greens can be hard grow this time of year, so we are happy to have such abundance.

We picked 80 pints of cherry tomatoes this week. No sprays, no chemicals, just pure goodness.

Cherry Tomatoes for This Week

We picked 50 baskets of tomatoes Friday, most of these were Roma tomatoes. These are great for canning, salsas and sauces. We also have lots of slicing tomatoes and heirloom tomatoes for canning

Don't forget the basil to use with your tomatoes. We are harvesting lots and have gallon bags for $5. Basil at the same price as lettuce, now that's crazy!

Hot, hot, hot...Reed picked 1/2 bushel of haberbaro peppers this week.

Carrots are back, Oh Boy, are they back. The candy carrots continue to impress this farmer with their sweetness, flavor and that perfect carrot crunch! Did you know raw carrots can lower your colestorol.

Okra production is in high gear. More is merrier when if comes to Okra. I made some Okra pickles this week. If you want to make some of those delicious gumbos, stews and other southern dishes with Okra, now is the time to get some.

French Fillet beans are the best beans on the planet (tender, pencil thin and no strings). Just started a new fresh row. Freeze an extra few bags for winter.

Andrea dried some mints and herbs and is making some Vegetable Freak... Freaky Tea. Sweetened with fresh stevia.

  • Jenna's Sweet Chocolate Tea - Chocolate Mint & Stevia
