News From Our Growers:

Trinity Rose Oberhasli Dairy Goats: The time has arrived that the ladies have been busy producing delicious Raw Pet Goat Milk. Coming soon: Cheese and Kefir. (Appreciate returned Jars)

Oakview Farm: has fresh kale, mustard, arugula and a salad greens mix on sale this week. We also have a variety of fresh cut herbs: parsley, thyme, garlic chives and lemon balm. Our napa cabbage, which doesn’t like this warmer weather, is starting to head so we are selling the crunchy green leaves for your lettuce wraps, salads and stir fries.

Carole Herbs (CS3 Farm): We have chives, greens,and hummus, and a question.

Check out our chives for a nutritious and delicious onion flavor for omelettes, salads, or dinner meals. Chives contain a lot of vitamins, minerals, and antioxidants.

We have more forest greens and miners lettuce, as well as a few more heads of fresh-picked red and green lettuce available. Our miner’s lettuce is good as a lettuce or spinach supplement or alternative, so it can be added to salad or can be used cooked or sautéed with your choice of eggs, vegetables, or meat.

We also have a fresh new batch of red pepper hummus available, and if you haven’t had it, you haven’t lived. Well, at least not to the fullest!

Dogwood Valley Greenhouse: It seems as though everything in the greenhouse is starting to bloom at once. Here are a few highlights, but you will find more new things on the pages.

For shade or part shade: hostas, Siberian bugloss, Coral bells, some of the ferns, foam flower and its cousin foamy bells. These will all combine well with some of our many colors of Azaleas, which are still blooming well.

For sun or part sun: Columbine, Geraniums, Lambs ear, Penstemon, Pincushion Flower, white Salvia,Yarrow, and

All the phloxes are now in bloom, and all three are natives in this area. Do you know the differences? Creeping phlox (Phlox subulata) is often used in rock gardens and edgings in full or part sun. It’s a low plant to 6 inches that fills in empty spaces nicely. Phlox divaricata and P. stolonifera are both woodland plants which prefer partial shade. They are both quite a bit taller than P. subulata, around a foot tall in bloom.

The first of the “Garden in a Vase” carnations are here! These first bouquets will be mixed red and pink, but otherwise similar to the photo.

And the “Fresh cut” Herbs are beginning! This week we have available Lemon Balm and Chocolate Mint, with more to follow next week.

Flying S Farms: Pac Choy, Radishes, Green Garlic and Salad onions. Added Super Mini (6) and Mini (3) Artisan Boule think of them like small biscuits or rolls.
