The beautiful weather has been holding and I am SO loving it! Tomorrow is opening day and I guess I'm ready....as ready as I'll ever be. Here's a peak at what is ready at the U-pick.....
Leaf and Romaine Lettuce:
Look at all the pretty colors....
Tons and tons of Jurassic-sized rhubarb: "Hi Marmalade!"
Garlic Greens: which are immature garlic that you can use whole like a green onion. In the words of one of my customers, "They're so good they should be illegal!"
And some baby turnips too!
And a little bit of Basil:
So, come on out tomorrow and pick yourself a salad!!
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:
P O Box 6021
