Saturday, June 24 at Abingdon--this is probably going to be stream of conscious

I'm not even going to claim to completely remember everything I harvested this week, since last week I forgot a couple things, and I usually leave something out.

But, here's what's new this week:


NATACHA ESCAROLE! I love this variety of escarole, and I should have a lot of it this year. It's a mild, sweet and slightly bitter green with a wonderful texture when lightly sauteed. 
I have eggs this week, as always, though I might sell out early. One can never tell.

I have a ton of lettuce--red oak, Simpson Elite (that greenish yellow one) Red Fire and probably another one I can't think of now.

I also have collards and a few types of kale and dandelion greens and komatsuna, which is a mild mustard. Also, I have all the usual herbs, including Italian Flat Leaf Parsley.

And, yes, I have the sunflower greens, pea shoots, cress and a small amount of buchwheat. I don't have wheat grass or kitty greens. Sorry. Oh! But I do have catnip. And scallions.

See you soon.

Saturday, June 18 at Abingdon

This is intimidating.  I now have TWO followers.  I'm not sure who the second one is, but it was nice writing to an audience of one (hi Gabs).  I could make up anything I wanted about what I'd have at market since that one follower lives in Massachusettes.

I hope everybody is doing well. I should have a lot of produce this Saturday:
Curly Kale
Lacinato Kale
Red Russian Kale
Swiss Chard
Lotta' Lettuces: Red Oak, Red Fire, Summer Crisp Head, Green Leaf Lettuce
Hakurei Turnips.
Mesclun Salad Mix
Sunflower Greens
Pea Shoots
Buckwheat Greens
Kitty Greens
Herbs: Oregano, Thyme, Lemon Thyme, Flat Leaf Parsley, Chives, Garlic Chives, Sage, Catnip
That's all I can think of, but after I send this, I always remember a few other things.
