Hattie’s Garden delivery/pickup service continues to bring you fresh and wholesome food. We are now taking orders for the Saturday, August 28 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, August 28.
This week Hattie’s Garden is introducing Rattlesnake Heirloom Pole Beans. These delicious large snap beans are believed to be native to the southwest region of North America where they were grown in ancient times by the Hopi Native Americans.
They are a dual purpose bean that can be used whole as a fresh green bean when young, or as a shelling bean when mature. We are picking them young and tender. The beans are quite long, 8-10” and the color is an attractive green with purple stripes. They may be limited at first, but we should continue to have them for the next month or two.
We are are also still harvesting Brandywine, Cherokee Purple and Pineapple Bicolor heirloom tomatoes. These are excellent heirloom varieties and are picked to give you the very best flavor. The cherry tomatoes are producing nicely, and we have nice mixed pints of black and red cherries for you.
We have lots of shishito peppers. Did you know that one in ten of the shishito peppers is hot? So beware these fun to fix and delicious to eat peppers of Japanese origin. To prepare, heat olive oil in a wide skillet over medium heat until hot but not smoking. Turn the peppers frequently, until they become softer and the skin begins to brown and blister. After several minutes, once they are adequately browned, remove them from the pan and sprinkle with good salt and a squeeze of lemon.
In addition there is plenty of beautiful basil. For pesto, you may want to order our bunches of basil, but for use with your tomatoes, you should get plenty from our 2 ounce bags of basil. For one lb. quantities of basil, contact Hattie directly.
We also have Russian Red Garlic and we are pleased to be offering Freeman’s corn for our pickup/delivery service and for pickup at the garden during our open hours. This corn is often lauded as the best in the area. It’s the same corn sold at the intersection of Robinsonville and Plantation Rd.
