Have you been Searching for US?

Search no more!  We are here and the garden is coming along beautifully– As the growing season is going to be shorter this year we have planted more root crops and beans.  So….here is a summary of what is in the garden and growing by leaps and bounds:

First ready will be Cucumbers and Summer SquashStriped Armenian and Suyo for long and curly packed with unique flavor, European Picklers AKA Snack Pickles, Heirloom Lemon cucumbers, Asian version of the English Cuke known as Tasty Jade, and several varieties of American PicklersSummer Squash is Zucchini, Yellow Squash, and a bi-color ZephyrPantheon for their Squash Blossoms and a sweet Parisian Patty Pan.

Beans–Green Beans, Dragon’s Tongue (type of butter bean, flat and wide…great raw in a vinegarette salad), Tri-Color Bean Mix (purple Amethyst, yellow Goldilocks, green Jade).

Corn–twice during the season! Early Potatoes and Fingerlings, Fresh and Green Onions,

Nightshades–3 kinds of Eggplants, lots of Tomatoes, oodles of Peppers both hot and NOT!

We should see some Tomatoes in July (Grape, Yellow Cherry, and Early slicers), by mid-August to September:  4 Heirloom varieties (Yellow Striped German Johnson, Pink German Johnson, Black Carbon, and Green Cherokee); as well as 3 saladette sized Yellow Taxi, Striped Zebra, and Early Girl.  And of course, Celebrity and Valley Girl and a new one developed for this region called Damsel.

Peppers?  YES!  The NOT HOTS are Green Bell Peppers that turn to a beautiful Red, Islanders in purples to oranges, and Yellow Bells and Orange BellsShishito peppers that are great grilled and eaten as an appetizer.  Multi colored, petite sized Snack Peppers.  The HOT’s…too many to list but varieties of Chili, Guajillo, Poblano’s, Paprika, Jalapeno, Pueblo Roasting Peppers, and Habanero…little purple Aurora’s!

Early Potatoes and Fingerlings, Watermelons and Melons

Brassica’sLacinato Kale, Broccolini Galion X, Kohlrabi (Purple and White), Broccoli for all the times in the season, Cauliflower (none for Spring, but lots for Fall), Romanesco (if they make…particular and unpredictable…we have not had them for the past two years), and lots of Cabbages!

For all season:  Root Crops–Carrots (Early Mokum Nantes, longer day true Rainbow’s, Cosmic purple…our favorite!…For the Fall a Mix of Deep Purple and Purple Haze, Yellowstone, and Sugarsnax.)   Beets, Alpine and Bravo Daikon’s (White and Purple),  Watermelon Radishes, and Red Radishes and Hakurei Salad Turnips.  For the Fall, Purple Topped turnips, White Lady and Scarlet Queen turnips, and Tennouji turnips.

After the first frost until the end of the 13 week CSA period: Celery and Celeriac, fall Potatoes, dried Onions, plethora of Winter Squashes, 110 day January King type savoyed Cabbage, Brussels Sprouts, and Sunchokes.  This is where the Cauliflower and Tri-color Mix of Cauliflowers (Graffiti purple, Cheddar, Vitaverde green) and Romanesco comes in!  Broccoli and Broccolini don’t mind the cold and will keep producing into October, if we don’t have a fast and early onset of Winter!
