Yes, we have lovely tomatoes this week. The heirlooms we are harvesting are Black Prince, Cherokee Purple, Pruden’s Purple and Brandywine. These are limited in supply, so please come early.
In addition we are harvesting some of our old standby hybrids — Early Girl, Celebrity and Big Beef — all are good slicers and delicious red tomatoes.
We also have an abundance of cherry tomatoes in mixed quarts on sale, in addition to the usual mixed pints and some 1/2 pints of the delightfully delicious little Jasper cherry tomato.
We should have plenty of arugula this week and lots of flowers, in bouquets especially featuring our Benary Giant Zinnias. All our flower bouquets come with a packet of plant food to help them stay fresh, which should be at least a week.
If you can come to the Garden on Thursday or Friday, we are able to offer some organically grown staples from Deep Grass Organic. This week we will have Yukon Gold potatoes, Red Potatoes, Shallots, Garlic, Cippolini and Onions.
