Hattie’s Garden open Thursday and Friday, 2 to 5 — See below for directions.
Halloween is fast approaching. Its roots originate from age-old European traditions stemming from ancient Celtic harvest festivals.
In any case, it is certainly a good occasion for celebrating the harvest and we have plenty of reason to celebrate here at Hattie’s Garden.
Come by the Garden on Thursday or Friday,from 2 to 5, and visit the Historic Lewes Farmers Market (HLFM) for the Halloween Market. You will find some of us dressed in costume with plenty of local goodies for your larder.
What’s Available This Week
The following will be available at Hattie’s Garden on Thursday & Friday from 2 to 5 located at 31341 Kendale Road in Lewes, or at the Saturday Fall HLFM from 9 to noon now located at Richard Shields Elementary School Parking Lot (Savannah Rd. & Sussex Dr).
- Young Carrots — Beautiful fall carrots getting sweeter by the day.
- Hakurei Turnips — These small Japanese delicacies are by far the sweetest “turnips” you will ever eat. Cook them until just soft without overcooking, or eat them raw as a salad turnip.
- French Breakfast Radishes — You must try this one-bite sized treat, prized for its sweet mild flavor and succulent crunch. Topped with edible, leafy greens, French Breakfast radishes are very crisp and offer a mildly spicy flavor.
- Spinach — Triple-washed and kept cold for you in our coolers.
- Young Arugula — Lovely freshly harvested, triple-washed and kept cold for you in our coolers.
- Young Loose Leaf Lettuce — Tender, triple-washed and kept cold for you in our coolers.
- Mesclun — Triple-washed and kept cold for you in our coolers.
- Mizuna Asian Green — Quick cooking and very delicious Asian green, mizuna is a wonderful addition to salads. It can also be stir-fried, sauteed, simmered, and added to hot pot dishes.
- Komatsuna Asian Green — Another delightful mild Asian; these can be used raw in salads and spring rolls or lightly sautéed in stir fries and wilted in pasta dishes.
- Lemongrass — Lemony, herbaceous, works well in sweet and savory dishes and drinks. The light lemon flavor blends well with garlic, chilies, and cilantro. It is also used to make tea or as an aromatic herb, or leaves can simply be boiled in water to create a wonderful cleansing aroma throughout your home. Lemongrass tea is made by pouring boiling water over leaves and allowing to steep for 10 minutes.
- Mojito Mint — This wonderful variety has excellent qualities for anything you might want to use mint for. Mojito mint is agreeably mild and warm, and doesn’t have the strong distinctive taste and aftertaste of a spearmint or peppermint.
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.
Yours in the Garden & Market,
