Weekly Update: June 25, 2015

Strawberries abound. Peachtree Circle Farm has added strawberry jams and Green Briar Nature Center & Jam Kitchen has sun-cooked strawberries in syrup—sinfully delicious over ice-cream. Early summer vegetables are coming into their own and hard-neck garlic is scaping. It’s officially summer—the June solstice happened Sunday—and Falmouth Fireworks will be selling T-shirts and hats at the market to raise funds for the July 4 firework display. In […]

Asparagus and baby bok choy joined the repertoire of spring greens last week – although “greens” don’t begin to describe the riotous shapes and colors of all the leaf-lettuces on display at the market. You could even buy a little container of green, purple, speckled and ruffled lettuce plugs of your own choosing, almost too pretty to plant out in […]
