What’s Available from Hattie
- Suhyo Cucumbers — This long, slender Japanese cucumber is mild with few seeds. Sweet crunchy flesh with thin rippled skin that needs no peeling. These cucumbers are a favorite for pickling and salads. Cut the ripe fruit into cubes and add to soup for an interesting and fresh twist.
- Bacchus Purple Radishes — A tad spicy, but we love them for the added flavor to salads and stir-fries.
- Fresh German Extra-Hardy Hardneck Garlic — Rich garlic flavor with lingering heat. The taste is pungent, but not overpowering. This variety’s very large cloves makes it one of the easiest to peel. German Extra Hardy is perfect for pesto-making or baking whole. Its mild flavor when cooked makes it a favorite among chefs for garlic mashed potatoes.
- Fresh Inchelium Softneck Garlic — This garlic is a national taste-test winner in the softneck division. Long lasting mild flavor with just a hint of hot.
- Shishito Peppers — These popular appetizer peppers are mostly a mild chili pepper, but every now and then a particular pod will pack some heat. Makes the perfect finger food when blistered. Toss in oil and sear in the skillet, then sprinkle with flaky salt.
- Swiss Chard — Tender young bunches. Cooks quickly and is delicious.
- Young Arugula — Triple-washed and bagged.
- Young Mixed Lettuce — Triple-washed and bagged.
- Basil — Beautiful freshly-harvested bunches.
- Fresh-Cut Flower Bouquets — This week we have bouquets with Dahlias, Zinnias, Double-click Cosmos, Snapdragons, Yarrow, Celosia and Gomphrena. Each bouquet comes with flower food, and is guaranteed to last at least a week.

Stop by the Garden on Thursday, July 6 from 10 to 4 to choose from an assortment of plant starts for your home gardens. While we will bring plants to the HLFM on Wednesday and Saturday, our space is limited and your largest selection will always be at the Garden.
Deck plants in large pots this week include Patchouli, Nasturtiums, Genovese Basil and Zahara bedding zinnias.
We still have plenty of basil in 4″ pots for your garden and other herbs including sage, oregano, chives, patchouli plants, lavender and mojito mint.
Finally, there are some nice bedding zinnias for those filling in spaces. These Zahara zinnias are drought tolerant, heat tolerant and bloom all summer with no deadheading.
