Many of you who are gardeners have been asking if we sell plants for your fall/winter gardens. Most of what I plant in late summer for the back half of the year are seeds that get sown directly into the ground. In my experience direct-sown seedlings handle late summer heat far better than flats or trays of seedlings. Also, in my experience, I will always murder at least 50% of any seedling flats in August because I got busy with something else and forgot one of the hourly waterings necessary on a sunny 95-degree day. Sorry, but we only sell garden plants in the spring.
The sweet pepper plants have been picked clean, but are busy re-blooming and setting more fruit. In a few more weeks we will hopefully have another month or so of sweet peppers, but for now we are out. Plenty of cherry tomatoes and eggplant still coming in. We will be picking what's likely the last of the watermelons this week - the last melons to come out of the field tend to be a bit smaller, so we've dropped the price a bit. And we have some out-of-season lettuce back on the menu for you! This week's lettuce is romaine, but the plants are looking a bit heat-stressed despite shade and daily irrigation (where'd you go, rain?). So we will be picking the plants small while the leaves are still sweet and tender, and selling the loose leaves by the bag.
Thank you for your business, eat well, and have yourself a great week!
