What’s Available through the Online Order System
The following items are available now to order for pickup or delivery on Saturday, December 4.
Hattie’s Garden is happy to be pulling delicious carrots as we begin our December harvest. Cold weather simply brings out the best in this variety we grow, called Napoli. When the weather gets cold, carrots convert some of their starch stores into sugar. They do this to keep the water in their cells from freezing. Napoli makes a great baby carrot or larger carrot. We try to harvest when they are a bit larger than baby carrots.
This week we will be harvesting some of our young kale and will be mixing it with Dittmar’s kale for a wonderful young kale bag of four different kinds: Lacinato Kale, Winterbor Curly Kale, Dwarf Siberian Kale and White Russian Kale. The kale also improves in flavor with colder weather and these young leaves should be tender, sweet and good quickly cooked or eaten raw. Hattie’s Garden continues to offer young lettuce mix, young arugula, and young mesclun, all triple-washed for you. In addition, we have bunches of hakurei turnips and red radishes. Our bok choi is young and delicious. We still have lots of cilantro, dill and rosemary.
Hattie’s Garden microgreens are turning out to be lots of fun to grow and we are happy they are doing so well for us. They are fresh and delicious and please check our list as we expand our offerings. If there is a microgreen you do not see and would like us to grow, please let Hattie know. Take a look at the online order form for our current list of available microgreens. A new introduction this week is “cress.”
Stag Run Farm bring us wonderful apples that include Pink Lady (crisp, sweet flavor), Winesap (tart, tangy, firm heirloom), Granny Smith (wonderful for cooking or tart eating), Arkansas Black (highly sought after heirloom apple), Braeburn (nice combination of sweet and tart flavor), Golden Delicious (sweet and tangy, great for eating), Valstar (sweet and tangy, great for eating), Fuji (sweet and juicy flavor, with a subtle refreshing tart undertone), and Rome (a great cooking apple).
Jen from Flying Squirrel Garden will be making dessert and savory pot pies this week for you. Jen uses mostly organic ingredients in her pies, including the produce she has grown in her pesticide-free garden. The pot pies easily provide two servings and her fruit and dessert pies rival any I have ever tasted. She uses a homemade crust made with butter for all the pies and bakes garlic into the crust for her pot pies. Limit is two per customer as long as supplies last, so sign up now for one of these delicious pies.

And their onsite creamery produces fresh and aged cheese from their pastured, grass-fed dairy cows.
