Hattie’s Garden delivery/pickup service continues to bring you fresh and wholesome food. We are now taking orders for the Saturday, October 2 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, October 2.
Hattie’s Garden is pleased to be working again with Davidson’s Exotic Mushrooms beginning this week. We say farewell to King Mushrooms as they are cutting back on their delivery service. We always loved Dale and Terry, and many of you know them and their mushrooms from the farmers markets. We got away from them during the beginning months of Covid and are so happy they are welcoming us back to sell their excellent mushrooms. You will see many of your old favorites. We won’t be carrying the more exotic kinds such as Maiitake and Oyster until our orders pickup after farmers markets close for the season. For now, we are offering Portabella, Shiitake, Cremini and Lion’s Mane.
Here at Hattie’s Garden we will harvest young ginger this week for you and remember we have lots of beautiful lemongrass as well. We will also cut fresh dill and fresh cilantro this week. The salad mixes are beautiful, and include triple-washed young lettuce mix, young arugula and young mesclun. We have plenty of Jade Green Beans and some nice hakurei turnips.
Jalapeno and habanero join our list of hot peppers this week and we are still harvesting our popular shishito peppers. One in ten of the shishito peppers are supposed to be hot, although we find most of them have at least a little heat. So, beware these fun to fix and delicious to eat peppers of Japanese origin.
To prepare shishito, heat olive oil in a wide skillet over medium heat until hot but not smoking. Turn the peppers frequently, until they become softer and the skin begins to brown and blister. After several minutes, once they are adequately browned, remove them from the pan and sprinkle with good salt and a squeeze of lemon.
From Totem Farms, there is a good assortment of microgreens to choose from.
302 Aquaponics has plenty of aquaponically grown salad ingredients, and beautiful tilapia fish they raise as part of their aquaponics system. There are no chemicals or pesticides in their growing.
Stag Run Farm has a good selection of apple varieties that include Golden Delicious, Gala, JonaGold and Empire. I have been testing them all and this is my take — Gala is the sweetest and it is a small, crisp and good apple. Empire is the most tart, very crisp and juicy, and is a small to medium sized apple. JonaGold is one of my favorites. It is both tart and sweet, and also nice and crispy — it is generally a very large apple. Golden Delicious speak for themselves. Stay tuned as we go through the fall for more varieties of apples from Stag Run, some of which you may never have seen or heard of and all of them delicious.
Dittmar Family Farms raises excellent free-range chickens. We carry their whole birds and chicken livers for you.
Chapel’s Country Creamery has added pasture-raised pork in addition to their premium pastured-raised ground beef. We have available for you bacon, link sausage, loose sausage, ham slices, nice thick pork chops and scrapple. If you are interested in other cuts, let us know. And of course, they have delicious aged and fresh cheese made on their farm using milk from their grass-fed cows.
AlaskaWild Seafoods family-run business has Pacific Cod, Pacific Rockfish, and Sockeye Salmon fresh frozen directly from the boat and flown to the east coast every week. Their smoked salmon is now back in stock.
Davidson’s Exotic Mushrooms joins us again this week and we welcome them back!
Rounding out the line-up are wonderful free-range chicken eggs from Twin Posts and honey from Chrissy’s Bees (part of Stag Run Farm).
