Produce and Plants for Sale on Tuesday through Friday: 2 to 5 and Sunday: 11 to 3
Spring is here and the heat is on as more seasonable weather is coming this week. Our gardens are finally ready to plant.
Stop by Hattie’s Garden this week anytime between 2 to 5 on Tuesday through Friday, and anytime between 11 to 3 on Sunday, to get your freshly-harvested produce and carefully-nurtured plant starts for your garden.
Alternatively, find us at the opening of the Historic Lewes Farmers Market (HLFM) this Saturday, May 5 from 8 to 12, marking its 13th anniversary! The HLFM is located on the grounds of the George H.P. Smith Park located at the corner of Dupont and Johnson Avenues. We are excited to be a part of this world class market. If you have never been to the HLFM, please come and see what it is all about.
We have produce, and lots and lots of plants for your home gardening this week!
We’re thrilled to be offering a good batch of freshly-harvested vegetables and herbs this week.
- Hakurei Turnips — These turnips are not your run-of-the-mill average turnip! These turnips are great raw — sweet and mild, or cooked lightly in stir-fries and soups.
- Mesclun — Triple-Washed & Bagged.
- Lettuce Heads — Beautiful heads of tasty varieties you won’t find in the supermarket. Includes Butterhead and Blushed Butter.
- Mixed Lettuce — Triple-Washed & Bagged.
- Fresh cut Dill — Add fresh or dried to salads, fish, vegetable casseroles and soups for a wonderful, distinctive flavor.
- Fresh cut Cilantro — Fresh and citrus-like, and a good source of dietary fiber, vitamins A, C, E, K, calcium, iron, potassium, and magnesium.
Nearly all of our vegetable, herb and flower plants are ready for you!
We do bring as many plants as possible to the HLFM, but you will find a better selection at the Garden on Tuesday through Friday from 2 to 5, and Sunday from 11 to 3. And because we have extra hands “on deck”, Hattie will be available for your questions and advice.
- Tomatoes — Beautiful selection of Heirloom, Hybrid and Cherry tomato varieties.
- Peppers — Gastronomically indispensable hot pepper plants, a good selection of sweet pepper plants and sweet bell peppers are now ready.
- Eggplant — Both Asian and Italian varieties are ready for planting.
- Squash — Wonderful summer squash includes Patty Pan, Yellow Squash and Zucchini.
- Cucumbers — A parthenocarpic, nearly seedless pickling Little-leaf Pickling and Marketmore Slicing.
- Swiss Chard — Two varieties are available: delicious Fordhook and stunning Bright Lights.
- Flowers — Zinnias, Marigolds, Cosmos and more! The flower plants we sell are not blooming in their pots! We don’t want them to bloom in their pots. We want them to bloom in your garden and grow to their full potential. They are at the stage now where they will literally “take off” once planted. They are not root-bound and the root hairs are just waiting to explore your soil.
- Herbs — Our herbs are really beginning to take off and there are many varieties to choose from.
