Stop by Hattie’s Garden on Tuesday, September 12 from 1 to 4 and Thursday, September 14 from 10 to 4 for the sale of produce, meat, eggs, cheese, fish and plants.
Hattie’s Garden is moving into the fall with plenty of optimism and lots of new items for you. This week we will begin digging our ginger. Look for it at the Garden on Tuesday and Thursday.
We are also harvesting lemongrass. We will compile some instructions on preparation and use of it. Lemongrass is a staple across Southeast Asia. With a flavor stronger than the genuine citrus, it is a rich lemon without the acidity. Lemongrass is delicious in roasted chicken or other meats, curries, stir-fries, marinades and soups. It is easy to freeze and to use.
We have mixed lettuce “plugs” for you in small six packs so the gardeners among you can start your own fall lettuce. We have lavender plants and rosemary plants that just love to be planted in the fall. For basil, we do have bunches for sale, but we also have nice 8″ pots of basil so you can cut your own for the next couple months. If you would like arugula plants, we will offer instead, small packets of arugula seeds with instructions so you can try them on your own. Arugula germinates in three days and it is easy enough to grow, even for those with a questionable green thumb!
You can also find us at the Historic Lewes Farmers Market (HLFM) located at the George H.P. Smith Park on Saturday from 8 to 12. In the event of inclement weather on Saturday, the HLFM will be located at the Lewes Elementary School parking lot at 820 Savannah Road.
