|Where we’ll be:
Rhodes on the Pawtuxet
60 Rhodes Pl, Cranston
Thundermist Health Center Farmers Market
(inside lobby, 1st floor)
This week we will be bringing the following items to the market:
Skyphos Butterhead Lettuce
The first of the Peonies have started to open! Be sure to be there early to get yours. They are BEAUTIFUL!
We will also be bringing vegetable, herbs and flowering plants!
This week at the farm:
Over 1,000 sunflowers were planted in the field.
Christina and Sam working hard to prepare a bed for the planting of Zineas!
Peonies ready to be picked for market.
Ever wonder why our Peony plants do not need to be staked?
We single stem them. In other words we only allow one bloom per plant. This does two things. First, it decreases the weight on the stem and secondly, it forces the plant to concentrate it’s energy on only one flower.
This is Skyphos Lettuce.
It is described as a butterhead variety with excellent taste and texture. Not bad to look at either!
See you at the market!
