Hattie’s Garden delivery/pickup service continues to bring you fresh and wholesome food. We are now taking orders for the Saturday, April 3 Pickup/Delivery Service.
What’s Available through the Online Order System
The following items are available now to order for pickup or delivery on Saturday, April 3.
Hattie’s Garden now has some cool weather vegetables and herbs ready for your early garden: cilantro, dill, Swiss chard, spinach, lettuce mix, and sugar snap peas.
Yes, it’s early, but its still should be okay to put these things in and some of you may be ready to get outside. If the temps dip below freezing, you might want to protect with a covering of some kind. Anything will do — newspaper, a sheet, etc. We are planting all of these things in our own garden this week.
This week we have Dianthus Amazon Neon Purple, Rocket Snapdragons and mixed colors of Lisianthus for sale in small 6-pks, ready to go into the garden. These are all suitable for cut flowers and are all long lasting in the vase.
You may order the small six-packs of plants directly through the order form this week for delivery or pickup Saturday. In April, as more things are ready, we will begin our weekly plant sales and most plants will be pick-ups directly from the garden, unless you need to make special arrangements.
Fresh Harvest Hydroponics now has butterhead lettuce, mixed lettuce and romaine lettuce available. Totem Farms brings you an assortment of nutritious microgreens and a limited supply of other produce.
We continue to have an assortment of jams and jellies from Backyard Jams & Jellies.
Nancy’s Café has new menu items including sweets, soups, chilis, quiche, scones and more.
We have free-range whole chickens and half chickens from Dittmar Family Farms and wonderful free-range chicken eggs from Twin Posts. Alaska Wild Seafoods family-run business has Pacific Cod, Pacific Rockfish, Coho Salmon, Sockeye Salmon and Smoked Salmon fresh frozen directly from the boat and flown to the east coast every week.
King Mushrooms brings to us a large assortment of fresh mushrooms, including some difficult to find exotic varieties with amazing health benefits. We get fresh honey from Chrissy’s Bees (part of Stag Run Farm), and delicious aged and fresh cheeses from Chapel’s Country Creamery, made on the farm using milk from their grass-fed cows.
What we are Planting
Last week saw the beginning of many many flower seeds. We start them in cedar trays and then pop them into larger trays and pots as the get a bit bigger.
The house is full of grow lights and newly seeded trays are hustled outside to the hoop-house as soon as they germinate, so more can take their place. It’s a logistical puzzle as we manage everything in our limited space. But it is also lots of fun as there is hope in the air, and we are so excited to be enjoying warmer weather and watching things begin to grow.
Outside, we managed to plant lettuce mix, arugula and cilantro. We hope to do lots more next week, but the rain again limited what we could do. Our early plantings of beets, carrots, turnips and radishes are making an appearance and we all love to see the little sprouts coming out of the ground. Spring is upon us and now we will be moving very fast to get things done. It is miraculous to watch the garden change from day to day.
Yours in the Garden,
