Hattie’s Garden open Thanksgiving Week on Tuesday and Wednesday, 2 to 5 — See below for directions.
Thanksgiving week has arrived and from all of us at Hattie’s Garden, we extend our gratitude and thanks.
We have some nice produce for those of you still shopping for Thanksgiving. From Deep Grass Organic, we are happy to have more wonderful Yukon Gold potatoes and plenty of “white” sweet potatoes, in addition to butternut squash, orange sweet potatoes, garlic and three kinds of onions (copra, candy yellow and red).
We are thrilled to be pulling more sweet young carrots early this week. The warm weather over the past couple days has done the trick with the cool and cold nights increasing the sugar content on our favorite fall carrots. We are harvesting from a new bed of young arugula and a new bed of mixed lettuces for your salad needs.
And sage! … don’t forget the fresh sage for Thanksgiving! Hattie’s Garden grows Berggarten Sage with nice fat leaves and a wonderful aroma.
And we are now stocking pure raw honey from Baues’ Bees.
Off-Season Delivery / Pickup
Saturday, December 3, is our first delivery/pickup service of the off-season. You will receive an email with all the details on Sunday, November 27, including a link to our order form. The order form is available each week until Wednesday at noon and you may either pickup your items at the Garden anytime on Saturday, or for an extra charge, check the box on the order form for delivery to your door.
Once the Off-Season Delivery / Pickup service begins, we will not have open hours at the Garden. However, we will always have extra produce and artisan foods available Saturday to pick up, should you forget to order. We will be open all day each Saturday. For more information, please check out our website.
What’s Available This Week
- Young Arugula — Lovely freshly harvested, triple-washed.
- Mature Arugula — Our mature arugula is still young, but larger than the young arugula. The leaf has a bit more spice and is preferred for cooking, although it should only be gently wilted. We know many of you prefer a bit more mature leaf to accent your salad. Triple-washed.
- Loose Leaf Lettuce — Young and tender mix of several lettuce varieties, triple washed.
- Mesclun — A mixture of our tender salad greens, triple washed.
- Young Carrots — Limited, come Tuesday if you want to be sure to have some! More carrots will be ready after Thanksgiving.
- Raw Honey — In one lb. glass jars from Baues’ Bees
The following produce through Deep Grass Organic is available at Hattie’s Garden on Tuesday and Wednesday from 2 to 5.
- Butternut Squash — Has an oblong shape, a tannish-colored skin, and an orange fleshy pulp. Its taste is often described as sweet, nutty, and similar to that of a pumpkin.
- Acorn Squash — Has a smooth, dark green exterior with longitudinal ridges and a sweet, yellow-orange flesh. It derives its name from its distinctive acorn shape. This hardy squash can be stored throughout the fall and winter, and will save for several months in a cool, dry location.
- Orange Sweet Potatoes — Small and medium-sized tubers. Sweet and delicious.
- O’Henry Sweet Potatoes — A white sweet potato with amazing flavor.
- Yukon Gold Potatoes — A true multi-purpose potato, these are starchy enough to bake, firm enough to boil and use in just about any cooking application.
- Garlic — An essential and wonderful seasoning to add aroma, taste, and added nutrition to your dishes.
- Red Onions — Mild and quite sweet. Ideal for salads, marinades, salsas and roasts.
- Copra Onions — These can keep as long as 9 months or more.
- Candy Yellow Onions — Sweet & mild flavored, all-purpose onion, with a light golden skin and yellow flesh.
Directions to Hattie’s Garden
Hattie’s Garden is located at 31341 Kendale Rd in Lewes approximately 3 miles from Plantation Rd. (Also known as Rt. 1D) coming inland on either Robinsonville Rd. or Beaver Dam Rd (Rt. 23 South). Kendale Rd. is a short link (.6 miles) between Robinsonville and Beaver Dam and the garden at 31341 Kendale is located near the Beaver Dam Rd. intersection — five houses from that intersection on the left hand side. The house has purple trim and you will see a large hoophouse or “high tunnel” in the back as you drive into the driveway.
We hold our sales in the large garage attached to the house. Enter the garage through a door in the side of the garage, just behind the house.
From the City of Lewes:
Travel on Savannah Rd and cross Rt. 1 as though traveling to Georgetown on Rt. 9, but take an immediate left and then an immediate right to access Rt. 23 South (Beaver Dam Rd). Rt. 23 runs roughly parallel to Rt. 9. Continue 3 miles and turn left onto Kendale Rd. Look for the purple trim on our house after a short distance of about a tenth of a mile.
From Rehoboth Beach:
Travel north on Rt. 1 and take a left at Rt. 24. Take a right onto Plantation Rd.–the first major intersection–and then a left onto Robinsonville Rd. (1.9 miles). Travel just under 3 miles and take a right onto Kendale Rd. Travel .5 miles on Kendale and 31341 will be on the right toward the end of this short road.
Have a safe and happy Thanksgiving!
And don’t forget to check out Holiday Edition Rehoboth Beach Farmers’ Market on Saturday, November 26 from Noon to 3pm in Grove Park for your holiday wreaths and centerpieces, arts and crafts, fall vegetables and prepared foods. Free cider and cookies with caroling by the CAMP Rehoboth Chorus.
Yours in the Garden throughout the winter,
