- All produce needs to be washed before you eat it. (Though we do endeavor to make it squeaky clean!)
- You may pay by check or cash, but confirm your order with me first. firstname.lastname@example.org
- We will pick your order fresh for you!
Green Garlic - one bunch
Green garlic is to garlic bulbs what scallions are to onions. You can use the white shaft and all the greens of green garlic in your cooking. I use it where I would use garlic, but slightly more volume because green garlic is milder than cured garlic cloves. It's great in sautees with cooked greens like chard and kale, I used it in my Nettle & Garlic biscuits - a recipe I adapted from Mountain Rose. (link connects to Mountain Rose Nettle and Garlic biscuits recipe). My adaptations include successful experiments with using green garlic instead of garlic cloves, using cooked fresh nettles, and using yogurt instead of the buttermilk.
Spring Nettles - 1/2 lb
Order some nettles for your spring soup! Or to dry for a nourishing tea all year.
These are stinging nettles from a patch we grew from seed. They will sting if you touch them with your bare hands (the stinging will go away in some hours however, and I have used it as a treatment for achy hands and arms from tendinitis. It's not the end of the world if you get stung.). You can prepare by putting on gloves and then chopping them, or simply get a hot pan ready and dump them in from the bag. Heat destroys the stinging, so a quick steam or sautee and you'll be safe to touch and eat them.
-Sauteed Nettles: Heat a pan with some butter or oil and dump in nettles from the bag (or after a coarse chopping). You can eat the stems and leaves. Sprinkle some salt to taste. Cook until nettles are tender; about 15 minutes in a covered pan. Add a dollop of butter before serving.
-Nettle Soup: Repeat above. Then, immersion blend the nettles with a quart of broth (chicken, veg, whatever you've got). Add more butter if you're like me. Add some fish sauce or anchovy paste. You can thicken this soup with roasted potatoes blended in, or add some other flavor with sauteed or roasted onion. This is my family's traditional Easter soup!
Chives with buds and blooms - so beautiful for salad and garnish this week. Make dip, sprinkle on top of any meal that needs a little purple allium love.
Mesclun/Spring Mix! - 1 lb bag
High quality salad mix! This week: a mix of red oakleaf lettuce, mild lime green tokyo bekana, green romaine, a bit of frilly red baby mustard, and green endive.
Mesclun/Spring Mix! - 1/2 lb bag
High quality salad mix! This week: a mix of red oakleaf lettuce, green romaine, light green oakloaf, a frilly summer crisp, green deer tongue and more.
Young Rainbow Chard, 1/2 lb bag
Last call for our over-wintered rainbow chard!
Then we'll be in a few week wait until it's time for spring chard out of the field.
Kale, Curly - bunch!
Oh kale, you're back!
First curly kale of the spring. This is when the kale is snackably tender right out of the field and only needs a very quick sautee.
In order to lure my little one into really enjoying his kale, I sautee it with carmelized onions and make sure there's a good amount of butter (or coconut oil), a generous dash of soy sauce, and a quick drizzle of maple syrup. Seems to work. The adults are eating way more greens too.
* Note -- we may add new varieties and if we do, you'll hear about it in an email if you're on our list. The date for pick up may change. If we change it, we'll also notify you by email. Happy Plant Shopping!
Lunchbox Red Pepper - 4 1/2" pot
A mini snacking pepper on a strong plant with high yields.
Lively Italian Orange Sweet Pepper - 4 1/2" pot
An open-pollinated sweet Italian pepper that's bright orange, sweetly flavored, and very productive.
Magnum Orange Habanero - 4 1/2" pot
A bright orange, hot, productive habanero. You know what to do!
Don't be surprised if the heat makes you do adventurous things....
Aji Dulce - 4 1/2" pot
Our sweet dragon of the garden. With all the flavor and complexity of habanero without the terrifying dragon heat. The best ever, period!
Chalk Art - Alya Kaiser
Sweet Bell Pepper: Mountaineer - 4 1/2" pot
In 2020 we did not have enough sweet peppers for the high demand! This year, with Mountaineer and some other favorites we aim to change that.
Seed from Fruition seeds -- an early, productive and delicious red bell.
Striped German - 4 1/2" pot
I love this heirloom tomato most of all! It's ginormous and full of bold colors and stripes. It's delicious eating and has been productive for us.
Here's a picture of some striped german tomatoes next to baby Nico for scale. We were about to pulp these tomatoes up for the seed-saving process.
Paste Tomato - 4 1/2" pot
This paste tomato is an Italian Heirloom with an ability to tolerate late blight pressure - a key feature in any tomatoes that we are hoping to get big harvests from since 2009!
We are looking to increase our production of tomato sauce this year and can't wait to harvest these lovely paste tomatoes and begin to simmer them down with onions, garlic, and maybe even some eggplant!
Roma VF Paste Tomato - 4 1/2" pot
A highly productive determinate plum tomato with 4 oz fruits. A plant with a lot of disease resistance with thick-walled fruits.
Jasper Cherry Tomato - 4 1/2" pot
A very sweet and smaller size red cherry tomato. This used to be our only red cherry tomato and we found it could grow well into the late summer and early fall. Once there were a significant amount of ripe tomatoes, we would clip cherry tomatoes in tresses for our customers.
High resistance to Late Blight and moderate resistance to Early Blight.
Black Beauty Eggplant - 4 1/2" pot
This is a classic Italian Eggplant with smaller size 5-6 inch fruits. You may want to trellis this plant to keep it upright as the fruit production comes in fully and can weigh down the plant. No spines on Black Beauty!
Honey Drop Cherry Tomato - 4 1/2" pot
A cherry tomato with a rainbow of colors, all in one variety! We can't guarantee what color tomato your plant will produce...so maybe buy a couple to get a variety!
Black Krim - 4 1/2" pot
Black Krim is an heirloom bred in Crimea in Ukraine. This is an open-pollinated and indeterminate variety that will benefit from treillising and pruning. Fruits are 8 oz. If you'd like a "black" tomato in a smaller size, try Black Cherry.
Ground Cherry - 2 1/4" pot
Ground cherries are one of my favorite plants for the garden -- a reliable fun snack for children and adults.
The ground cherries or husk cherries are ripe usually once they fall to the ground and the papery husk turns whitish golden. The fruit inside will be golden and has a range of flavors from pineapple to sweet-tart tomatillo. In abundance they can be used in jam, ground cherry pie (a PA dutch classic), or just added to sautees that need a little bright sweetness.
Benefit from trellis, but it's not required.
Rose de Berne Tomato - 4 1/2" pot
We have grown and loved this heirloom.
I'll let Petra of Fruition Seeds speak to its attributes:
"If we could only grow one single slicing tomato, this would be it. A Swiss heirloom and a Brandywine cousin, the depth of rich fruit flavor makes Organic Rose de Berne Tomato our favorite for sandwiches and, truly, everything else. Her soft, translucent pink skin rarely cracks, even on the largest of the 4 to 6-ounce tomatoes. Rose de Berne is pure abundance once she starts producing and some Late Blight tolerance offers extra weeks of harvest even when disease arrives."
An indeterminate plant that will require treillising and will benefit from pruning.
Thai Basil - 2 1/4"
Thai basil is a favorite for thai sautees. Once or twice a year I make an attempt at creating Drunken Noodles and I require thai basil. The result is always good and the thai basil is crucial. I also like to use it in other dishes that I cook - and it can often find a home as a garnish in sweet dishes.
Many people like to use thai basil to pair with desserts (like...with ice cream!).
This plant is beloved by pollinators and quite a lovely garden herb.
Chamomile - 2 1/4" pot
Such a beautiful and giving plant! Our favorite nightly tea for me and Nico.
Each pot will have a little clump of chamomile plants, which you can plant as a clump or separate gently and spread out in the garden.
I like to grow a patch of chamomile and then allow some to go to see so it will spring up again the next season.
Tea is made from dried flowers.
Ancho Poblano Pepper - 4 1/2" pot
Mild chilis for stuffing (chili rellenos!) or for chopping and using to add a bit of heat to a roasted, rich-flavored tomato sauce.
Brandywine Tomato - 4 1/2" pot
Big, lovely 16 oz fruits that are the glory of the heirloom world.
Juicy flesh and a great balance of sweet and acid.
Potato-leaf foliage and an indeterminate growth habit: this plant will require treillising and will benefit from pruning.
Black Cherry Tomato - 4 1/2" pot
Black Cherry is one of our favorites in our rainbow cherry tomato mixes. Black Cherry is a dusky brownish red cherry that is bigger than most cherry tomatoes and consistently productive and healthy late into the season for us. They have a rich flavor that we gravitate to for snacking.
Victoria Rhubarb - 4 1/2" pot
Grown from seed. Plant this spring for a light harvest starting next spring. We adore our rhubarb row, and just recently started a new one. Rhubarb is a perennial that provides great pie ingredients (reddish-green stalks) in spring. One of the plants my Nana grew behind her house in New Jersey in their small garden.
Just don't eat the leaves....:)!
Sprouting Broccoli - Piraciacaba - 4 1/2" pot
This is a big and bountiful broccoli plant that will produce many tender spring broccoli sprouts if given enough room. It requires a couple feet around it and some good compost to fuel its continued late May and June sprouting. I love fresh snacking on this broccoli and also doing a quick sautee with its tender stems included as well.
Habanada Peppers, 4 1/2" pot
These peppers have a fruity, complex flavor reminiscent of habanero but without the heat.
They are very productive.
Moldovan Green Tomato - 4 1/2" pot
A large open pollinated tomato which is ripe when green with a hint of yellow. It's mildly fruity and acidic with a bright flavor. Indeterminate.
Grow a green tomato! Freak people out! Then, win them over when they realize it tastes amazing green and ripe!
White Queen Tomato - 4 1/2" pot
We love this big white tomato with a pink blush for it's pleasant flavor and surprising lovely look. White queen is a productive and indeterminate tomato that thrives in our garden.
Estiva Red Tomato - 4 1/2" pot
This is our go-to red slicing tomato for the field. First recommended to me by Erica Bowers-Lavdanski at B&H Farm in Morgantown as a perfect and beautiful slicer for the field.
A great size for slicing and putting on sandwiches or chunking up for salads. Always a nice even red with good yield. Indeterminate in growth.
Jedi Jalapeno - 4 1/2" pot
A new jalapeno that's very high yielding and doesn't easily crack or check. The fruits are about 4 " long when mature. They produce over a very long harvest season.
Glow - Sweet Snacking Pepper - 4 1/2" pot
A sweet and delightful 2-4" orange snacking pepper that has been super productive for us over the past many years.
Nasturtium, Dwarf Jewel Blen - 2 1/4" pot
This mix has all sorts of colors, so get a couple plants for a red, yellow and orange experience. The plant will trail and vine so you could put it in a hanging basket or just let it lounge around and mound up in a corner of the garden.
Last season along with offering the edible peppery nasturtium flowers to restaurants we started to offer the beautiful edible pinwheel leaves, too. This plant is so lush and magical. And full of edible joy all season until frost.
Zinnia - Mix of Colors! - 2 1/4" pot
A couple different bright and happy zinnia varieties. It is easy to save seeds from zinnias at the end of the season and keep your garden glowing and going for next year!
Magic Bus and Pinca Mix. Check out the Wild Garden Seeds site to see these zinnias, some of our favorite types.
Holy Basil/Tulsi "Kapoor" - 2 1/4" pot
Oh I love this plant! It is the best single source herbal tea-plant you can grow in my humble opinion. It will do well in a container or in the soil. It is so revered for it's medicine and it's loveliness in India and I think you will shortly learn why.
Pick leaves and flower and use for tea fresh or dried. Allow some to bloom and you will be feeding the bees. If you allow some of the flowers to make seed, you will have an annual volunteer coming back from seed each spring.
Basil, Italian - 2 1/4" pot
Italian large-leaf basil as you know it and love it. This variety is called "Rutger's Devotion" and it's downy mildew resistant, which is important these days. We have enjoyed growing it and picking it into late summer.
Pesto, pizza, summer in a nutshell! (Don't forget to get your tomatoes to go along with it!)
Green Zucchini - Dunja - 4 1/2" pot
A dark glossy green zucchini. The plant is nice and open for easy harvest. We love green zucchini plants not only for their lovely fruits but also for its big blossoms, which can be picked and added to sautees or stuffed with cheese and battered and fried for a very special treat.
48 days to maturity.
Purple Blush Tomatillo - 4 1/2" pot
A highly productive, sweet fruity variety of tomatillo with a little purple blush on the fruit. Tomatillos can be sliced raw in salad or roasted for an amazing salsa. We always find our tomatillos are much more productive and less susceptible to disease than the vast majority of our tomato plants.
Ping Tung Eggplant - 2 1/4" pot
Ping Tung is a high-producing Taiwanese eggplant. It grows long slender eggplants that are great for stirfries and roasting. The fruits grow up to 11" in length, though you may want to harvest a little younger and smaller for more tenderness. Protect plants from flea beetles and potato beetles with floating row cover until they begin flowering.
Smooth Operator Yellow Summer Squash - 4 1/2 " pot
This is a special one! I was about to give up on growing yellow summer squash because the spines on these plants are so harsh on the hands and arms of the harvester, not to mention the tender little fruits as they are pulled from within the plant! But this smooth operator is borne on a spineless plant meaning a painless harvest for all.
We bought these seeds from the all-organic seed company High Mowing and are just as excited as you are to enjoy the tasty harvest. Powdery Mildew resistant. Harvest fruits at 6-7 inches long. 50 days.
Cherry Bomb Tomato - 4 1/2" pot
Cherry Bomb is a full-bodied flavor red cherry tomato with very good late blight resistance. We switched to this variety from the smaller-fruited Jasper and have been happy about the high yields, delicious flavor, big cherry size and disease resistance.
Sungold Cherry Tomato - 4 1/2" pot
Sungold is such a cherry tomato superstar. These little orange sunshine snacks are perfect for a home garden with hungry little gardeners. They sometimes split after big rains, so pick just before and if you get splits you can pick them and roast them for carmelized extra sweetness.
These will be big and healthy plants, bursting to get in the garden and start growing.
Fred's Tie Dye Dwarf Tomato - 4 1/2" pot
Here's a beautiful tomato that seems to be the dwarf version of one of our absolute favorites, Pink Berkeley Tie Dye. Both varieties are pink with metallic green striping, except Pink Berkeley is indeterminate and needs lots of trellising and pruning and Fred's Tie Dye is a 3 foot tall compact version that can thrive more easily in a container or smaller garden.
Get some big heirloom beauty in a small package.
Fruits are 5-6 oz slicers with a rich, well-balanced sweet flavor.
Marketmore 76 Cucumber - 4 1/2" pot
This is a classic open-pollinated cucumber variety that's great for slicing for salads. You can also make them into pickles. The cucumbers are 8-9" long when mature and very dark green. This cucumber is a strong producer and tastes good. We grow it every year.
National Pickling Cucumber - 4 1/2" pot
(photo credit Fruition Seeds).
This is a new pickling cucumber to us, but is the winning favorite pickler of one of our new favorite organic seed companies, Fruition Seeds. Petra at Fruition Seeds writes, "The perfect pickle! Impressively prolific, these gorgeously blunt-ended pickling cukes average six inches, though we often harvest them smaller. Whether you’re snacking in the garden, tossing on salads or pickling a pint or filling your pantry, National Pickling will not disappoint you."
Bright Lights or Rhubarb Red Swiss Chard - 2 1/4" pot
In the spinach family, chard always has a buttery richness that I love as a cooked green. Bright Lights & Rhubarb Red Chard are bright and beautiful- yellow, pink, white, red and deep rhubarb red. This plant can be grown as an ornamental and edible!
The farmers at Liberty Gardens, the organic veggie farm where I first had a farm job, grow swiss chard as an ornamental in the flower bed in front of their house as well as in the field as part of their crop production.
Calendula, Resina -- 4 1/2" pot
One of my most favorite garden flowers which is also a superb medicinal. Flowers are bright yellow, cheerful and plentiful, especially if you pick the flowers off as they mature to make room for new ones. Calendula flowers are excellent in teas and are also a common ingredient in salves for skin healing. A plant that brings in the sunshine in so many ways! Called Calendula because they are quite hardy and in a mild winter can bloom every month of the calendar year. (Don't expect that in this climate, but I have seen them blooming in late november). Saving seed from these guys is easy too. Check out some details on that and also the source of our calendula seed here: https://trueloveseeds.com/products/resina-calendula-1
Giant of Italy Parsley - 2 1/4" pot
Italian flat-leafed parsley. When I was in first grade we had to make a little book about our favorite vegetable and I chose parsley. I loved eating the thick juicy stems which are sweet in the spring and late fall, and salty in the summer. My teacher disqualified that choice, saying that parsley is not a vegetable. I disagree -- I think it can be either depending on mood and use!! Go parsley go!!
We plant it out 1 foot in row, 3 rows to a bed.
Dwarf Green Curled Kale - 4 1/2" pot
A highly productive curly kale, growing to 12-18" in height. A smaller size than the classic curly kale to better fit a container or smaller garden. For us, curly kale often grows through the summer and then persists into the winter, beginning to look more and more like a palm tree as it gets taller and lower leaves are picked and eaten.
Onion - set of 4 pots with 4 varieties- 2 1/4"
A set of 4 pots with 4 varieties of onions: Patterson, Red Wethersfield, Yellow Sweet Spanish, Rosa di Milano. Each pot will have 2- 3 onion plants within it.
Enjoy the variety.
Cover them with light row cover to prevent allium leaf miners.
