October is "National Farm To School Month", and earlier I blogged about one of our local high school's visit to my garden. Today they invited me to their "local" lunch.
Look at this delicious spread!!
Locally caught silver salmon on a bed of sauteed kale topped with sorrel and dill pesto, mashed potatoes, raw carrots and celery, biscuits made from Delta Junction barley flour, and Washington apple/ Sitka blueberry cobbler. Delicious!!!
Everyone was excited about the meal...
And who can turn down a free lunch?
THE U-Pick GARDEN will be closing August 20th. This will be the last year the garden will be open to the public. Next year I'll be operating as a CSA, supplying about 20 regular customers with weekly boxes. Thank you for your support over the last 8 years, but it's time to try something new.
To get a copy of my book, "How To Grow Vegetables In Sitka, Alaska" just give me a call....The books are $20 plus tax. If you live out of town and want me to mail you a copy, you can mail a check for $25.60 to:
