Sunny warm days make for perfect conditions to plant in the field and recently we have been lucky to have some perfect May days. Last week we transplanted our first planting of tomatillos and cherry tomatoes into the field. This week we have been applying mulch and made more beds so we can get our heirloom tomatoes seedlings in the ground too.
Our greenhouse is buzzing with activity right now, seeds are germinating, tiny seedlings are getting potted up, and plants are growing big as they wait for their forever home. Right now we have a wonderful combination of spring and summer seedlings available. We have favorite staples like sugar snap peas, leeks, onions, and cucumbers. We also have a few harder to find choices like ground cherries (pictured below), red okra, tomatillos, and purple beans.
In our online shop we have restocked many of our tomatoes that we were previously sold out of. Currently we have 17 varieties of slicing tomatoes available and 7 varieties of cherry tomatoes.
In addition to our tasty tacos and gorgeous guacamole we also serve some delicious drinks. Every Saturday morning we make fresh squeezed lemonade. Each 16oz cup contains half a lemon, simple syrup made with organic cane sugar, ice, and refreshing water to make the perfect lemonade. For folks that need a bit of caffeine we also offer some lovely canned beverages. This includes iced coffee in 3 flavors, green iced tea, raspberry iced tea, cola, and ginger ale. The iced teas and soda are perfectly sweet but contain zero sugar. All of these beverages are favorites of ours and what we like to drink while eating tacos for breakfast or lunch.
As it will be Mother’s Day weekend we expect this Saturday’s market to be busy. So we recommend ordering your guacamole, pico de gallo, ceviche, and seedlings ahead of time to make sure you get exactly what you want. But if you are not able to order through our online shop remember the early bird gets the guac. The earlier you swing by our booth on Saturday mornings, the higher your chance of securing your favorite items.
