Farm Stand Opening Saturday, May 25th

Happy upcoming Memorial Day! Come visit us at the farmstand on Saturday, May 25th. We anticipate having the following (available in limited quantities).

Lettuce
Triple Chick Farm lettuce is renowned for its quality and variety.  Early generations grow in the greenhouse and are especially tender.  A tip for fresh lettuce: wash and spin dry the leaves and store in an air tight bag or container.  Properly handled it will last for weeks.  Left on a shelf, it will wilt faster than its grocery store cousin.

Salad Turnips
This delicate turnips are the envy of any salad.  Slice the white bulb for a crunchy treat – more delicate than a radish, more meaningful than a cucumber.  The greens are also excellent for a spicier salad mix.

Swiss Chard
Rainbow swiss chard is available early and most of the season.  The greenhouse plants seem especially tender and mild.  Chop and sauté the whole bunch for a great shot of vitamin A.

Rhubarb
A spring treat if ever there was one.  Rhubarb is a hearty perennial and we are thrilled to have brought our patch back to life.  Chop and stew with a small measure of sugar for an excellent summer dessert or back and freeze a pie for July 4th.

Also available this week: early beets and beet greens, spinach, herbs and eggs.
