We’ll have about the same stand as last week; lettuce mix, salad mix, radishes, green onions, herbs, etc. Peas are flowering and should be available next week. We’ll probably bring pea shoots again.
It’s been a long week for both of us. We measured 7 consecutive days of rain, with a short break Wednesday followed by more rain, which makes the weeds go wild but prevents us from getting many other things done.
In addition, we’re both battling a nasty cold, which creates real problems for harvesting and marketing. Joanna was out of commission for the first part of the week, and I came down hard and fast Wednesday night and am currently in no shape to sell fresh produce. We think we’re both past the contagious phase by now, but it is still not good practice to be sniffling and coughing when working with produce or customers, so we’re hoping that Joanna’s cough goes away quickly. We don’t want to make people sick, but also have this one 4-hour window per week to make sales of products that have taken months to grow. Thank goodness we have workers scheduled for Friday morning to help with harvest.
So be nice to Joanna at market on Saturday; we’re both worn out.
BTW, here’s a nice photo from a reader/customer showing sauteed pea shoots with chive blossoms, both sourced from us. Very pretty.
