Meet this week's vegetables

  • Baby leaf salad mix A blend of baby lettuce, mustard greens and arugula. This is one of the best times of the year for salad greens. With ample rain, cool nights, and the days getting shorter, the greens are in their prime!
  • Red globe radishes
  • Golden Beets 
  • Oxheart carrot — An heirloom carrot with an intriguing shape, and an amazing crunch. Great for stews, soups and roasts, as well as raw. This variety is becoming increasingly rare, as the seed has become almost impossible to come by. Luckily, we stocked up a couple of years ago, and still have some left.
  • Sweet peppers
  • 1 quart of German butterball potatoes
  • Torpedo onion
  • garlic
