Yay! Hakurei turnips are making an appearance at the market this week…..though with the weather, I’m not sure when the next planting of hakureis will be ready. These ones came from the hoophouse but we’ll be planting tomatoes in there so we needed to harvest it all.
I’m really happy with this salad mix using Salanova lettuces. This year, we’re only planting Salanovas early and late in the season. I find that they grow too slowly in the warmer part of the season but they have great cold tolerance. And they are really beautiful and delicious and more substantial than our baby leaf salad mixes.
I love red-stemmed spinach but we do find that it bolts quickly so we really only grow it in cooler weather. So, this is a special treat for our Dieppe Market customers this week!
We also harvested lots of radishes and sweet ‘n’ spicy mix from the hoophouse. The whole hoophouse is now harvested out and ready for tomatoes! Woohoo!
