We’ve been transplanting a lot of delicious veggies to replenish what was lost in the freeze. Over the past week we transplanted broccolini, leaf broccoli, Napa cabbage, lettuce, tatsoi, bok choy, and chicories. We also planted another vegetable we’re really excited about: leeks! These baby leeks (pictured below) will spend quite a bit of time in the ground before they’re ready for harvest in the spring.
Want to see a radicchio glow up?! The first image below is what our radicchio looks like with frost damage on the outer leaves. But, if you peel off the outer layers of those leaves, it reveals a perfectly blanched head of radicchio (the second photo below)! This variety is called Mirabella and it has a beautifully mild flavor. The leaves are a light yellowish-green with flecks of dark pink and are perfect for winter salads. We’ll have a limited amount of radicchio at the farmers market this Saturday for you to try.
Speaking of the farmers market, the first one of the year is this Saturday, January 15th, from 8am-noon! Just in case you need a reminder, our market is located at 8939 Harlem Road. In addition to our farm stand, you’ll be able to peruse a carefully curated selection of local goods from our vendors like Wagyu beef from Statkar Farms and coffee beans and coffee drinks from Fellowship Coffee Co. We’d love to see you for our first market of the year so that we can celebrate all things local!
Currently in Season: Carrots, Beets, Cauliflower, Kohlrabi, Snow Peas, Fennel, Turnips, Brussels Sprouts, Spinach, Cabbage, Radicchio, Parsley, Cilantro, and Dill.
