Petersen's Market Menu September 5, 2015

We have been picking 20 pints of raspberries a week. No sprays, no chemicals, just pure goodness.

 We picked 40 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.

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!

We have been a little short on greens the last few weeks, especially arugula and spinach. I started harvesting new fall beds this week and the are at the perfect size for you holiday salads.

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.

If you didn't get some of our Ambrosia sweet corn last week you missed a treat. See us this week for fresh picked, chemical free, no sprays and no bugs. We have enough corn this week for freezing. We had some for supper Friday night and it is amazing. This will be our last week of sweet corn.

Okra production has tripled from several weeks ago. More is merrier when if comes to Okra. I made some Okra pickles this week.

French Fillet beans are the best beans on the planet (tender, pencil thin and no strings). Just started a new fresh row.

Andrea dried some mints and herbs and is making some Vegetable Freak... Freaky Tea. Sweetened with fresh stevia.
  • Andrea's Tropical Tea - Orange Mint, Pinneaple Mint and Stevia
  • Jenna's Sweet Chocolate Tea - Chocolate Mint & Stevia
  • Lisa's Orange Blossom Tea - Orange Mint, Spearmint & Stevia
  • Just Mint - A Blend of Spearmint & Stevia
