Hattie’s Garden will be open this week on Wednesday, November 2 and Thursday, November 3 from 10 to 2 for the sale of produce, meat, eggs, cheese, and fish. We will also be at the Fall Historic Lewes Farmers Market (HLFM) at Lewes Elementary School Parking Lot parking lot at 820 Savannah Rd. in Lewes on Saturday from 9 to 12.
Last week for young ginger! Come get some Wednesday or Thursday. And if there is any left we will bring it to the market Saturday.
To freeze ginger, wash well and simply freeze in an airtight container or freezer bag. It will easily keep until next season. Take it out of the freezer and grate it for use in all your ginger friendly dishes. This young ginger need not be peeled and is not stringy or fibrous — simply delicious, bright and mild and sweeter than the brown gnarled roots commonly available at the supermarket.
Let the fall harvest begin! Stop by this week for crisp, fresh, delicious fall crops from our garden including young carrots, small red cherriette radishes, tender Dwarf Siberian kale, Fordhook Swiss chard, lovely young bok choi. We are also harvesting new beds of young lettuce mix and young arugula. And don’t forget about our microgreens! We are introducing new choices each week. In addition to our usual choices, get wasabi with a bit of spice, or Austrian winter peas with a delicious, fresh pea taste.
Our recently re-introduced vendors include 302 Aquaponics lettuce and Dittmar Farms free-range chicken. We also have a wonderful new delivery of free-range beef and pork from Woodbine Farms, a newer arm of Chapel’s Country Creamery. The sirloin steak is delicious and steaks are nice two-four people portions. Pork chops are beautiful too and bacon is to die for. Try the sage sausage loose or in links and don’t forget some of the best scrapple on Delmarva!
