But what really drives me is that I know the more we can get down now, the more rewards we reap come "harvest time" in the fall. Anticipating the bounty, I guess...Or maybe this is just because, it's what I do!
Meanwhile, we are already reaping a lovely "spring" bounty of early and overwintered crops. And, we are bringing them to market today! Both Coupeville AND the Bayview market!
From the fields at Willowood Farm:
* Mesclun bags
* Arugula bags
* Spinach bags (Bayview only)
* Mache bags
* Baby butterhead lettuces (Coupeville only)
* Broccoli Raab bunches
* Giant Purple Mustard bunches (these are the HOT horseradishy ones that have a devoted following...)
* Baby Pac Choi bunches
* Braising Green bunches (a mix of yummy greens suitable for stir-fry or braising)
* Garlic Green bunches - they smell SO good!
From our busy friends one mile across the prairie, Prairie Bottom Farm:
* Red Bordeaux spinach
* Green savoy spinach (Coupeville only)
* A few beets!
* Overwintered scallion bunches
* Walla Walla green onion bunches
And, appearing at the Bayview market only, Mikey from Whidbey Green Goods will be bringing lettuce mix bags, a whole heck of a lot of plant starts, and some other special goodies!
So we hope to see you at the markets today! 10 a.m. to 2 p.m. for both of them. Look for the tractor and wagon set-up in Coupeville, and at Bayview our booth should be down at the Basil Cafe side of the market.
Thank you for your support of locally grown produce - it makes the madness all worthwhile...
