For Tuesday March 21st
Happy St. Patrick’s Day! I hope everyone is wearing green, eating corned beef and cabbage, and finding gold at the end of rainbows. I’m still searching for that rainbow with my pot of gold, and I’m convinced if I keep chasing after rainbows, I’ll find it! Maybe I’ll find it this summer when I’m in Ireland. I will be getting married there after all, and I guess a husband is a pretty good substitute for gold.
CABBAGE: Happy St. Patrick’s Day. Even though St. Patrick’s Day will have come and gone by the time your next delivery arrives, who couldn’t use more sauerkraut in their lives right now?! We currently have both red and green cabbage from Porter Farms in New York. They are just waiting to be paired with all good things green.
SPINACH: Oh have I been happy to have spinach these last couple of weeks! Spinach salads, spinach with eggs, spinach in wraps and soups! I’ve been feeling wonderfully packed full of vitamins and minerals thanks to our growers’ productive spinach crops!
SWEET & SPICY SALAD MIX: One of our customers’ favorites has been making a regular appearance on our list these last few weeks thanks to our growers’ high and low tunnels. What a difference tunnels make for winter greens production in our area.
CILANTRO: Herbs are yet to come on full swing, but Tuesday we expect a nice influx of bulk cilantro. It’s been a bit hard to predict herb supply this winter as the sun has been shining sporadically and offering its warmth irregularly, so if you’re looking for cilantro, it might be best to stock up now.
NON-ORGANIC, ALL NATURAL LOCAL CHICKEN EGGS: AVAILABLE IN MEDIUM, LARGE AND EXTRA-LARGE, 15 DOZEN BULK. PLEASE CALL TIM DERSTINE AT HARES VALLEY GROWERS AT 814 448 2784 FOR GREAT EGG PRICES.
