Hattie’s Garden delivery/pickup service continues to bring you fresh and wholesome food. We are now taking orders for the Saturday, March 27 Pickup/Delivery Service.
And happy spring everyone! It occurred yesterday at 5:37 am. We are excited to experience longer daylight hours as the northern hemisphere is tilting closer to the sun. Longer lasting warm weather isn’t too far away!
What’s Available through the Online Order System
The following items are available now to order for pickup or delivery on Saturday, March 27.
Hattie’s Garden now has some cool weather vegetables and herbs ready for your early garden: cilantro, dill, lettuce mix, arugula and sugar snap peas. Yes, it’s early, but its still should be okay to put these things in and some of you may be ready to get outside. If the temps dip below freezing, you might want to protect with a covering of some kind. Anything will do: newspaper, a sheet, etc. We are planting all of these things in our own garden this week.
You may order the small six-packs of plants directly through the order form this week for delivery or pickup Saturday. In April, as more things are ready, we will begin our weekly plant sales and most plants will be pick-ups directly from the garden, unless you need to make special arrangements.
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 new menu items including sweets, soups, chilis, quiche, scones 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
Well, the rain kept us out of the garden this week, but we have high hopes for next week. Since we were mostly stuck inside, we spent time starting lots of little flower seeds, planting our first seeding of several types of basil and moved our pepper and eggplant seedlings into the next size. They will move once more into their final home in a couple weeks.
We are at a little bit of a stand still as we suffer the shipping woes that have affected nearly everyone. Some supplies we ordered more than a month ago have not yet arrived. We will take a trip to southern PA in the next day or so to physically retrieve some things we normally have shipped and that we simply can’t wait much longer to get. Not only are items back-ordered, but trucking itself is also backed up for a couple of weeks. We are lucky that we planned ahead and should stay on track, but it has been a juggling act.
Yours in the Garden,
