New this week (just in time for Mother's Day) we are bringing back our famous flower and herb containers- lots of color in some and lots of potential in others!! Check out our toad abode and other crafts. We will continue having a variety of greens including microgreens, lettuce mix, spinach, arugula, cress, and very-young & tender pea shoots. Fresh cut herbs, radishes, spring onions, ramps (wild garlic), and a few portions of baby pac choi will also be for sale. Transplants galore! Ask about our Brookside CSA option- we have 3 spots left.
Can you beat this weather??!! Hope all of you are finding time to get out and play!
Busy week here - still planting - and still have squash, okra, melons and cukes to go. The kids - Lonnie and Jeanna - are loving market. Thanks to everyone for helping them along. Jeanna swears that next year she'll know every tomato - and I just don't have the heart to tell her I change the offering every year!
Saturday sounds like the perfect day - cool and sunny. Hope everyone gets to the market! We'll have lots more plants, beautiful head lettuce and whatever else we can find.

This week I'm bringing out some of the warmer weather crops such as peppers and eggplants. We'll also have our list of cherry and big heirloom tomatoes. I will bring a couple of those wonderful American cranberry bushes and Elderberries as well as some other fun things for us Foods Not Lawns folks. The thing I'm most excited about this week is our recycled kitty litter earth boxes. You can use these to grow your tomato, pepper or eggplants right on a deck or patio as long as it gets sun. The best part about these is they are made almost entirely out of recycled materials and are organic to top it off. Look forward to seeing you all on Saturday.
