Our tomato seedlings are now available! We have a wide selection of varieties that come in many different shapes, colors, and sizes. Our current selection is just the beginning, we will be adding more varieties as the plants reach the perfect seedling size for transplanting.
We like to focus on heirloom and open-pollinated varieties with fun histories and delicious taste. To learn more about each tomato visit our online shop and click on the image above the variety name. There you will find details about what the tomato will look and taste like as well as some of the heirloom’s history and if it is indeterminate or determinate.
This past week the greenhouse and the field got water! This is very exciting to the farmer as we will no longer have long hoses running here and there to be able to water the greenhouse or irrigate the field. The greenhouse also now has electricity and it feels so fancy to have electricity in our greenhouse. Since starting Quarter Acre Farm in 2008, our greenhouses have never been heated or had electricity. Actually our “greenhouse” was always technically a hoop house that was bare bones and solely heated passively by the sun. So now it is pretty cool to have a fully functional greenhouse on the farm.
This week’s special at the Easton farmers’ market will be our beloved Scrapple & Egg Taco. We will cook up a slice of scrapple allowing it to get a nice crispy outside and top it with a perfectly scrambled egg. This will be served on a warm corn tortilla and garnished with our pico de gallo.
We often get asked if our pico de gallo, guacamole, or ceviche are spicy. They are not, we do not add any chile peppers to these delicious items. But if you are looking for some heat then we suggest getting a side order of our house-made habanero hot sauce at the market. This comes in a closed 2 oz container. Our hot sauce packs a punch and a little goes a long way so you can add whatever amount you want to spice up our tasty take home items. Our hot sauce is lime juice based and should be stored in the refrigerator if you don’t use it right away. Speaking of ceviche, this week it will be flounder. We hope to see you at the market soon!
