Summer Fruit on the Horizon & Local Greens in Abundance
The temperatures are heating up and the stone fruit has just arrived from California. It’s a great time to come in and check out all of the sweet offerings. Organic peaches , nectarines, pluots and plums as well as cherries are a must try. This is a nice taste of what summer has to offer, but has yet to deliver locally. The crop this year is top notch. In addition to that we are carrying a special late season organic navel orange, while supplies last. Mangoes are ripe and to top off all of this glorious fruit are some juicy organic red and green grapes. New in are some black grapes, all varieties are seedless.
Local asparagus is still going strong. Keep an eye out for an expanding display of local greens. Digger’s Mirth is the the latest newcomer to arrive with a super fresh crisp crunch, at the best of prices. Kale is still coming strong from Bread and Butter Farm (newly certified organic), as well as rainbow chard and oh so tender collard greens from Miskell’s Farm. Miskell’s is not certified, but Dave says he uses no spray in his rare tall greenhouse. Soon we are expecting his cucumbers to rock the shelves and put salad season into full swing.
Green garlic is in from Crowing Rooster Farm and it has us wondering when will we have our scapes?
Also, just in is hydroponic red boston lettuce and beautiful basil bunches from Green Mountain Harvest Hydroponics. While this growing method can’t be considered organic, because it’s not soil grown, it’s pesticide free and a very clean and efficient process. To round out this group is the beefsteak tomato from Vermont Hydroponic which is going on an epic sale this week. And what better way to end this blog than mentioning our new co-brand with Vermont Hydroponic – Salad Infinitum. This endless epic salad mix is sure to please.
