Hattie’s Garden delivery/pickup service continues to bring you fresh and wholesome food. We are now taking orders for the Saturday, March 20 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, March 20.
Hattie’s Garden has the very first of our cool weather herbs ready for you this week! We will happily deliver our little calypso cilantro 6-packs if you would like to start growing.
Next week, look for sugar snap pea plants, dill plants, mixed lettuce plants and arugula plants. We will put these things into the order form and deliver small plant items during March. In April, as more things are ready, we will ask that plants are mostly picked up at the garden.
This year, we will be carrying Vermont Compost potting soil in 20 qt. bags. There is none better than this certified organic compost-based, living soil potting mix. We have tried many different types of organic potting soils and have never found one that even remotely approaches the health and vigor this soil gives to our plants. We will put that on our delivery schedule in the near future and will have it available through delivery or pickup at the garden the beginning of April.
Fresh Harvest Hydroponics now has butterhead lettuce, mixed lettuce and romaine lettuce available. Totem Farms brings you an assortment of nutritious microgreens and a limited supply of other produce.
We continue to have an assortment of jams and jellies from Backyard Jams & Jellies.
Nancy’s Café has a nice winter menu with great soups, chilis, small and large quiche and more.
We have free-range whole chickens and half chickens from Dittmar Family Farms and wonderful free-range chicken eggs from Twin Posts. Alaska Wild Seafoods family-run business has Pacific Cod, Pacific Rockfish, Coho Salmon, Sockeye Salmon and Smoked Salmon fresh frozen directly from the boat and flown to the east coast every week.
King Mushrooms brings to us a large assortment of fresh mushrooms, including some difficult to find exotic varieties with amazing health benefits. We get fresh honey from Chrissy’s Bees (part of Stag Run Farm), and delicious aged and fresh cheeses from Chapel’s Country Creamery, made on the farm using milk from their grass-fed cows.
What we are Planting
This past week at Hattie’s Garden we potted up 1,000 baby herb plants. We receive tiny starter plants called plugs from Hillcrest Nursery in Maryland. These are mostly grown from cuttings (not from seed). They are organically grown and we then pot them up into our organic Vermont Compost potting soil for you. We have all the herbs we normally have (see our website), and always try something new. This year we are trying German Chamomile.
We have now started all of our first batch of peppers, eggplants and tomatoes. They will begin to be ready in about six weeks. In addition, we were finally able to get into the garden and planted beets, carrots, turnips and radishes. Our fall planted garlic is looking wonderful and the first batch of lettuce should go in next week, but stay tuned and we will give you an update next time!
Yours in the Garden,
