Hattie’s Garden open Wednesday and Thursday, 2 to 5 — See below for directions.
We are happy to announce the harvest of the first of our young fall carrots. The carrots are very sweet and have the fall-grown flavor you will never find in a store-bought carrot, organic or otherwise. In addition, a beautiful new planting of young arugula is ready to cut. This is the nicest arugula we have had since the big rain event.
We are unable to attend the Historic Lewes Farmers Market (HLFM) this Saturday, November 5 because of family obligations. Therefore, our carrots and young arugula will be available only at the Garden this week on Wednesday and Thursday from 2 to 5. Please stop by if you can, and if that time does not work, please email Hattie so she can arrange a pickup time for you.
We are also very excited about the arrival of “white” sweet potatoes from Deep Grass Organic for this week! White sweet potatoes are not actually white, but a cream color and are absolutely amazing. We roast them in the oven and they are so sweet and creamy you wonder if you should eat them for dessert! There is really no way to explain how delicious and unique these sweet potatoes are.
We also have more of the beautiful orange sweet potatoes, another gastronomic miracle. Once you have tried an organically grown sweet potato and have experienced the complex, sweet flavor of a truly nutritious food, you may never go back to the insipid non-existence flavor of conventionally grown sweet potatoes.

Directions to Hattie’s Garden
Hattie’s Garden is located at 31341 Kendale Rd in Lewes approximately 3 miles from Plantation Rd. (Also known as Rt. 1D) coming inland on either Robinsonville Rd. or Beaver Dam Rd (Rt. 23 South). Kendale Rd. is a short link (.6 miles) between Robinsonville and Beaver Dam and the garden at 31341 Kendale is located near the Beaver Dam Rd. intersection — five houses from that intersection on the left hand side. The house has purple trim and you will see a large hoophouse or “high tunnel” in the back as you drive into the driveway.
We hold our sales in the large garage attached to the house. Enter the garage through a door in the side of the garage, just behind the house.
From the City of Lewes:
Travel on Savannah Rd and cross Rt. 1 as though traveling to Georgetown on Rt. 9, but take an immediate left and then an immediate right to access Rt. 23 South (Beaver Dam Rd). Rt. 23 runs roughly parallel to Rt. 9. Continue 3 miles and turn left onto Kendale Rd. Look for the purple trim on our house after a short distance of about a tenth of a mile.
From Rehoboth Beach:
Travel north on Rt. 1 and take a left at Rt. 24. Take a right onto Plantation Rd.–the first major intersection–and then a left onto Robinsonville Rd. (1.9 miles). Travel just under 3 miles and take a right onto Kendale Rd. Travel .5 miles on Kendale and 31341 will be on the right toward the end of this short road.
Yours in the Garden and at the Market,
